One of my favourite places for a coffee and cake- along with The Oak Barn. Coffee is very good and consistently good. I am a regular and I always get a friendly welcome (as with first-timers as well)!

Having tried every cafe in Budleigh Salterton we have hit upon this gem. The coffee comes in sensible sized cups and the cakes are fresh and home made. There is a simple varied menu of a more substantial size. A plus is that the owner...More
