“Mick's Fried Breakfast......”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Friday 5th July 2013.

I went to the Manor Cafe in Ilfracombe this morning, I had a beautiful tasting breakfast,Well worth the money I paid. I can recommend Mick's Fried Bread it is something to die for!!! to go with the normal/small fried breakfast. The Breakfast I had was with a very a good tasting sausage, the best I have eaten for a very long time.

I also enjoyed their coffee, which was real coffee not cheap old stuff, the service I had was second to none, Well worth a visit if you passing that way.....The cafe was clean and tidy, I had a lovely welcome from the Ladies that was serving there. They where very quick and happy to chat with me whilst waiting for my breakfast which was cook whilst i waited which was not very long!!! If I was to mark this cafe, it would 100 out 100.......

I popped into the cafe to kill a bit of time before a meeting and it took me 20 minutes to get served. Not exactly friendly but the coffee was good!

Dear Nina,Thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed our coffee, it is roasted for us in Devon. That you had to wait so long to be served I felt was unusual, we must of been very busy that day though there is always to option for customers to come to the counter to be served. When next in Ilfracombe, pop in and say hello and the coffee is on me. Regards Jill

“Full English to die for”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

If your a fan of a proper english breakfast in a proper cafe then make sure you call here and have one of micks special breakfasts but i warn you dont go if youve already eaten that day .Me and my family called in while on holiday and we all agreed that it was the best cafe we had been in .The service is fantastic and my little boy thought he was really special when he got a free lolly as we were leaving for being a good boy .The food is just fantastic and when it arrives with such a lovely and chatty lady it makes it taste even better
