“Best Cafe In The Town”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

We have eaten at Adele's Cafe on numerous occasions and can safely say it is the frindliest and well run cafes in the town. Very clean and welcoming and Ted is a lovely addition. You always get a welcoming smile and the food is wonderful. 100% recommend!!!

“Great breakfast cafe”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

eight of us stayed in Ilfracombe - and Adele's was the perfect find for breakfast. Very friendly , great service and breakfasts were very good - porridge is particularly excellent. Only disappointment was the sausages - everything else is very good.

Look out for Ted the Dog.

Decor is bright and clean - with a nautical theme; opens from 0730 even on sunday.

Overall, very good experience for breakfast and great value.

“Lovely Cafe”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

Have visited this cafe quite a few times, when we visit ilfracombe, very convenient placed in the harbour area, so it is lovely to have a walk round the harbour with the kids early in the morning and then pop in for breakfast.
Service is always excellent and prompt, and the quality of the food is good. definitely worth a visit.

“Just perfect for breakfast”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

We stayed in Ilfracombe for three days and had breakfast here on all three days. Very friendly, clean and bright, good food, and Ted the dog "Don't feed me". Opens early and I agree with all the other reviewers. The town itself is a little run-down, but not this cafe.

“Friendly café made my holiday!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Very friendly staff, very fast service, clean and bright decor, great choice in the menu from a full english breakfast to a steaming bowl of porridge. This lovely café also provides packed lunches andis the home to a very cute dog called Ted! Will definitely come back to Adele's when I'm next in Ilfracombe.
