“Excellent place to eat”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

We had a really good meal here, catering for both vegetarian and vegan. the food was freshly made, and could tell us exactly what the food was made of. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I will definitely go back here when I am in the area next time.

“Evening menu - great value, very tasty”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

Booked for the evening set menu - 3 courses for £12. It's 'bring your own booze', with a very reasonable corkage of £1/person.

The restaurant is a quirky little vegetarian cafe. It was busy, so there was a vibrant atmosphere, but it wasn't too small as to feel cramped. This is not a posh restaurant, the atmosphere was extremely relaxed.

The food is relatively simple, but good quality vegetarian. The portion sizes are generous, and the food comes piping hot.

The combination of good food, great price and money saved on drinks makes this a very good value evening out. If you enjoy vegetarian food, and don't need the poshest restaurant in Ilfracombe, I'd thoroughly recommend booking a table at Grassroots.

“Yummy lunch!”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Grass Roots Cafe is perfect for a lunch time stop off in Ilfracombe. The staff were incredibly friendly and welcoming providing an efficient service. The cafe has a warming, homely atmosphere with a counter display of cakes and homemade goodies to tempt your taste buds! The food was of great quality - wholesome, tasty, good portion size and perfectly presented. We bought a cake to take home which was very much enjoyed! Would most definitely recommend to others!

“A great meal and lovely atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 12, 2012

We booked the restaurant for the evening as a group of 13. The food was lovely and very reasonable. Pay corkage to bring your own drink, which wasn't a problem, and get 3 great courses for £12. The walnut and goat cheese salad was superb. Had a great evening and will do it again. I've had lunch here before and that's great too!
