Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We came to the smaller premises a few years ago for delicious cakes, waffles, pancakes and drinks. Tried to come back today as we had great memories. Not sure what was going on inside, but it was so loud, there was the sound of someone...plonking really loudly on a piano in a downstairs area coming up the stairs, not playing music, just randomly hitting keys like a child would (maybe it was a child!). That on top of radio music and people shouting to be heard…we sat and waited thinking it might hopefully stop. Somehow no-one else seemed bothered by the fact you couldn’t hear yourself think. The menu didn’t have waffles listed, which is really what we’d come back for after them being so great last time, so that was a shame. In the end we couldn’t hack the noise so had to leave. So review is for atmosphere alone, we may well have enjoyed a good drink and eat if the piano racket hadn’t been going on!More

The perfect little out of the way cafe - coffee was very good, breakfast was great, cakes were excellent and the flatbread was awesome. Local produce, lovey vibe - the high spot of our export mini break

We were recommended this cafe/restaurant in Lynton by some locals who said it was 'fun'. They were right. We really enjoyed 2 lunches there even though the cooking is not haute cuisine. It was tasty and well served and we would recommend it.

Best breakfast I’ve had in a long time. The cafe is beautiful and the food sensational. Could have stayed all day and just kept ordering. We also stayed the night in the snug, booked via air b n b. Lovely accommodation, so central and brilliantly...put together. Will definitely be back!More

Absolute GEM. Fantastic coffee and lunch. We were so happy we did not want to leave. The food was so good I had no time to take pics as it just disappeared! Our boys loved the waffles and milkshakes and I was in love the...flatbread and the rice dish (forgot the name!). If we are back in the area we will definitely be back!!More

We randomly popped into this licensed funky bar/cafe for a quick bite and a winter warmer. It was a great experience. The tag wishing wall in itself is worth the visit. We both had the shakshuka with sausage and both agreed it was quality. The...staff were friendly as and everything was priced as it should be. It’s not a massive place so would fill up quickly in holiday seasons. We loved it and would go back on future visits. Thanks to all the staff for a great experience.More

I really like the vibe in this cafe, it’s bright and welcoming and dog-friendly. Great smoothies and although not loads of vegan options what they have are delicious.

Came for brunch on the strength of a previous excellent visit, but it ends at noon and we were a good deal later. So we had lunch instead, and it was even better! The best bowl of chilli beef nachos I've ever had, and a...truly excellent Buddha bowl, both dishes leaving us very content. The decor is very pleasing, the atmosphere relaxed and service friendly, helpful and efficient. One of us requires gluten-free food and they accommodated that easily. Cannot recommend too highly.More

Popped in for Pizza Thursday. There were some interesting, unusual combinations which are a change from the usual offerings. The mackerel and crispy seaweed ( with reduced cheese) pizza was excellent, very flavourful, a thin base. The stilton and pear Pizza was declared excellent too....Great cocktails. Good atmosphereMore

Charlie Friday's was a quirky pleasant and popular cafe where we had coffee and no food so this review relates only to atmosphere and the coffee. Friendly service and nice decor.
