“Creative and caring”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2012

It's good to be offered menu options that are a little different from the standard fare of most eateries as well as the 'old faithfuls' cooked to perfection. You can tell that the food is cooked on the premises rather than bought in pre-prepared. There is a creativity with the cooking here and a care taken in its preparation and presentation. We have always found Nikki and Robin and all members of the staff to be caring, conscientious and heartfelt in their chosen occupation. Living in Budleigh Salterton as we do, it's our first choice for lunch or light refreshment and our first recommendation.

“light & airey with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2011

This is a pleasant place to lunch or have coffee and cake, it’s relatively roomy with its high ceilings and light décor, compared to other establishments in Budleigh Salterton. Most of the cakes are home made on site as well as pizzas and fresh filled rolls and baguettes. The staff were friendly and efficient it has to said. Nice place.
