We have been to Exmouth many times but never wandered this far along the seafront. We are so pleased that we did! The Dockside Cafe is quite unnoticeable but it once found is definitely worth a try. It is no way a five star restaurant...More

Empty when we arrived, so we were able to place our order quickly. Five staff on duty, but they were so busy chatting we smelled the teacakes burning before they had realised- so they arrived a little charred dripping in butter. Overall not bad, better...More

Lovely place to eat, very tasty food and you can choose what you want, not just a set menu. Prices are very reasonable and have never been disappointed. A true little gem and friendly staff

This cafe serves the best breakfast in the area and not expensive, the cafe is quite cosy and well furnished with pictures of local boats on the wall which I found quite interesting, the cafe holds about 60 diners, but gets very busy from early...More

Great breakfast at a very reasonable price. Service is quick and efficient and the food is top notch. Always a place to visit when in this neck of the woods..

The best place in town for a classic English breakfast, in company with all the local trawlermen. A great place to go before spending a day on the water. Visited so many times and will keep coming back

Difficult to fault the all day breakfast which consisted of bacon sausage egg hash brown mushrooms baked beans and a slice of white toast generously buttered. Everything was freshly cooked in this traditional cafe nicely decorated right by the quay in Exmouth

I have breakfast here every other week, ideal for breakfast and lunch, most food fried, but nice and good proportions

Our family had breakfast here before the Sail with Santa on Stuart Line Cruises. The breakfast was cooked to order, beautifully presented, and tasted wonderful. Staff are very friendly and helpful, reasonably priced.

Decent cooked breakfast. Not too greasy, and well-portioned. Go for the bubble and squeak, it's brilliant. Lots of tables, but quite busy with locals, tourists, tradesmen and fishermen so best not to be too large a group.
