Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch, Breakfast, Reservations
Description: We're a local, dog friendly restaurant that specializes in Tapas and wine, as well as providing classic English lunch time meals. Positioned at the bottom of Torquay Town, and a five minute walk from the beach, we provide the perfect hideaway for anyone looking to escape the hustle and bustle for a few hours. Come in and help yourself to a comfy sofa, a newspaper and some of our commended coffee and nibbles!

Found this place - off the Main Street. All the food was home made and cooked to order so there was a just a little time to wait. However the food was worth waiting for. The spaghetti and meatballs was delicious. Other people in our party had Paninis and another cheese and ham toastie. Needless to say all our plates were empty when we had finished our lunch. Prices were very reasonable. The owner Paul and his wife Shirley were so friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend.

We stumbled across Serendipity whilst visiting Torquay. The staff were very helpful and friendly. They knew what ingredients were in their food & were able to advise me which dishes were milk-free. We had the bolognese & meatballs which were both delicious. The food was freshly cooked which makes all the difference.
We thought it was good value for money - £14 for 2 main meals & drinks.
The cafe was clean & bright (& the toilet was also lovely & clean).
If you are passing this cafe then I recommend popping in. You will not be disappointed.

Stopped off for lunch and as soon as we entered we were greeted with a smile. A lovely selection of food and drink were on offer. A real gem and a must visit if you are in the area.
