Lovely small place with a very appealing menu. I could not fault the food it was just delicious - bread very fresh - filling yummy - coffee excellent. This is the sort of place I wish we had where I lived/worked - indeed there were many locals eating/taking food away whom the staff knew well whilst we were enjoying our lunch. We did take the opportunity at looking at other customers dishes and it all looked fabulous. It you want fast food then this is not for you - if you want homemade, made to order - quality food then its a must. I thought this was true value for money.

Looking from the outside this place looks as if it can deliver some nice food but i was't impressed. The service was slow, price was very high for what you get on your plate. Not value for money, wont be back. Just under 6 quid for 2 slice of bread and ham and cheese toasted. Rip off.

Andy makes the interesting soups! Wonderful quality sandwiches - eg Sharpham brie and red onion chutney. Meats, cheese or fish platters, for sharing! Local jams, chutneys, meats and cheeses. Rachel makes the cakes herself, often including gluten free choice[s]. Toasties, Ciabatta etc etc. Barista style coffees and wide choice of teas. Make your quick sandwich something of quality by ordering homemade soup and handmade sandwich! You deserve better quality food! Cappucino and fruit toast [Rachel makes the fruit toast!] in the morning or cream tea in the afternoon [Rachel makes the scones! Local jams] offer better quality food breaks to your shopping and trip to Dartmouth. They do takeaway, including salad boxes for that picnic by the River or in the Gardens - maybe even for that boat trip on The Dart. Upgrade your sandwich standards here!!

It could be easy to walk past this place set amid the hustle & bustle of Dartmouth, but once you've found it you can be assured of a warm welcome, a relaxed atmosphere and above all the tastiest food in town. No overly extensive menu, simply a great choice of well prepared food to eat in or take away. The deli stocks an array of excellent products, all with a local 'flavour', so relax and enjoy lunch, coffee & (the best) home made cakes and pick up idea's for creating your own feast from what's on offer!

Rachel and Andy do a great job of keeping us locals happy with great food, good coffee (very important) and friendly banter. We love these guys. Get in and try some of their fabulous local cheeses, Italian hams, Montazuma's chocolate, the best olive oils in town and if you're looking for a treat for you or a friend, brilliant hampers and wicker picnic boxes are put together to delight!!
