I visited here for lunch with friends and their children recently and we had a lovely brunch and incredible coffees. A perfect cafe in a very cute village.

We have visited many times. Usually we have the excellent home made soup. On the 14th we made a visit only to be sorely disappointed. The soup (carrot and coriander) was lukewarm and had to go back to be reheated. It was relatively tasteless even with added salt. That crusty bread, this time, was sliced bread from a plastic bag!!... More

What a delightful place this is, came across it by accident and now every time we drive through Modbury we stop for coffee etc. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food and drinks are amazing. Keep it up folks.

Very convenient parking and a warm greeting made for a very pleasant lunch with my daughter. Nothing was too much trouble and our paninis where delightful. The mince pies looked fabulous and where available to order. This snug and comfortable cafe has a lovely ambiance created by lots of nic nacs for sale and the warm friendly staff.

Came here with a friend for a catch up. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back! We had homemade cakes and delicious coffee and drinks. The menu for lunches and snacks looks amazing and very reasonably priced so we're already planning our next trip! Staff lovely and efficient, cafe was clean, tidy and inviting.
