DARTED in to the Dart Cafe for breakfast - and enjoyed every morsel. I opted for the full English. And although I had to munch toast rather than fried bread as I'd hoped it set me up for the day. Loraine put away scrambled eggs and left with a spring in her step - but said the cafe was a... More

We visited Dartmouth on two occasions while we were on holiday recently, and the coffee and service was so good the first time that we returned for lunch on the second occasion. We weren't disappointed. Look out for it, it's worth a visit!

This is a wonderful place, looks good, feels good, and everything we had tastes good The coffee is wonderful, I don't normally go mad for coffee but this is very good, it's the reason we went back three times in a week , next time we are in Dartmouth it will be the first stop.

This was the best breakfast on our trip to Dartmouth. The full English would take some beating and the scrambled eggs were excellent. All were freshly and speedily cooked and the coffee was the best we found in our whole trip. Obviously well frequented by the locals this is a very pleasant café.

Have to disagree with the Trip Advisor consensus on this one. Pleasant guys (look like they should be in the building trade!) and an ok little cafe. Sandwich was fresh and pleasant but ham, egg and chips did not live up to others' reviews. Probably because we arrived at the end of the lunchtime service, there were shedloads of chips... More

Having wandered Dartmouth and looking at the various pubs and eateries we came across this lovely Cafe. The owner was very welcoming and half the clientele were local and thus had a friendly feel about it. We both had the crab and prawn salad which was very nice though the prawns were small and looked as if they were from... More

Clearly a favourite with the locals - the guys running it seemed to know everyone. However, we were still made very welcome and they scored highly on my critical capuccino rating. Cheerful, friendly cafe.
