We stumbled across this little cafe on the high street, had a look on here before we went in to check reviews and it did not disappoint! We both had English breakfasts which were made with local produce and tasted great! Owners were every friendly, gave us tips and ideas of things to do while we were visiting, very welcoming!...

Nice warm welcome with a smile. Very reasonable prices but needs to step into the 21st century and get wifi. It is at the far end of the town.

Thank you for your review. We used to have wifi but had it taken out as it really spoilt the atmosphere in our cafe. Poeple stopped talkiing to each other and ignored their children - I decieded Social media should be renamed 'unsocial' media More

Went in for lunch with the family. Great freshly cooked local produce and such friendly owners. Next time we are in Ilfracombe, we'll definitely be paying another visit. Can't praise this place highly enough.

Visited as a family of four, we walked up from the crowded harbour area in search of somewhere for brunch. With a fussy 11 year old and an over hungry teenager I was anxious to find somewhere quickly and we hit the jackpot. The owners were so friendly and accommodating, was lovely to chat to them. The food was fresh,... More

From the moment we (6 adults 2 infants) arrived until the moment we left the owners and staff made us more than welcome. Excellent care and attention to our needs, food quality and quantity and value for money fabulous. Having tried others in Ilfracombe this is the best breakfast in town.

Great place for a home made scone cream tea in Ilfracombe. The sandwiches were also great and the kids loved the traditional milkshakes.
