A nice little cafe with really tasty coffee. Have visited on my own in the past but this time with my young family who were very well looked after! Worth a visit

It all looks very clean and hygienic but it has missed a golden opportunity to become the stand out coffee shop in Axminster and become a very plain Jane with no atmosphere. You see the management are not listening to the local people who have...More

Attractive refit, helpful staff, but the price rises are unacceptable. £11.30 for two regular cappuccinos and toasted teacakes, and no waitress service (although the staff were very helpful ). Sadly, after many years, we will no longer meet up at Trinity House!

Popped here for lunch and it was very good. It is located upstairs in trinity house shop and was a good find. Very reasonably priced and a good selection of meals.

What have they done to our favourite lunching spot? All the old fashion service and conversation replaced by a self-service attempt to mirror Costa down the road. Result, an empty cafe. How very sad. You certainly didn't ask the locals before making these changes.

Part of a department store, this cafe/restaurant is clean, bright and has pleasant, attentive staff. My favourite here is the cheese and onion toastie and Americano coffee. All you need then is a window seat on market day (Thursday) nd you can watch the world.
