We have had a couple of snacks and coffees over the summer period and think it is good value for money.

Nice little cafe very clean, can't comment on the cooked food unfortunately, as we only popped in for a brew & a little snack, after we alighted the train in Torquay, on our return from Dawlish Warren.

Purchased a coffee and Bacon Roll. The coffee was very good and the Bacon Roll was delicious. Ideal place to have a refreshment whilst waiting for your train.
