I had to rate this café with 4 stars although I would say that it was good but not very good! We had lunch which was excellent but a little expensive. Service was reasonable and the staff friendly and efficient.

Delicious food and a warm, friendly welcome. We struggled to find a table as it was very busy but managed to squeeze around a table meant for two. Despite being very busy, we were swiftly and politely served and the food was delicious. We will...More

Not the biggest of breakfasts. Surroundings just a little bit tired. In need of a lift. A little overpriced for what you get

Food was so delicious and came to our table promptly (best coleslaw ever!). Coffees were brilliantly made and overall everything was at a decent and affordable price. I've been here many times and I've always been kindly welcomed and taken care of by staff members....More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Is it possible to book? I know that this is a very stupid question, given that the clue is in the name "Café", but we are in Topsham for just one weekend and I would really like to treat my husband for Sunday breakfast on 18th June (he usually makes it). If no, we will of course turn up and keep fingers crossed :)

Hi Julia. I am not sure if you can book a table there. Best to do, would be to give them a ring and also find out if they are open on Sunday's. The phone number is 01392494470. Hope you enjoy your weekend.
