“Great place”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

Visited this lovely cafe with son, daughter in law and baby grandaughter, it was half-term and quite busy but we soon found a table. Be warned they don't take card payments-I didn't have enough cash on me but the trusting staff allowed me to bring the remaining money back later in the day! The food was good, with a generous amount of salad too. It felt more like sitting in someone's front room than a cafe, all very comfy with a beautiful view of the canal. I will definitely return, next time remembering to take enough cash!

“The best poached eggs in town!”

You can't beat the welcome for a good cuppa and a stonkingly great bit of homemade cake! The family who own and run it are a delight and their poached eggs draw me back time and time again

“You'll be welcomed at The Welcome!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

If you're cycling the River Exe Trail or just taking a stroll by the canal, the Olver family will make you most welcome and look after you well if you fancy stopping here for tea and a cake or light lunch. Their well-named the Welcome Cafe used to be a little used pub. The family have managed to create a homely relaxing place for refreshment right next to Exeter Ship Canal. The service is excellent and the home made cakes and snacks tasty. Try it - you won't be sorry!
