“Best cafe in the Bay.”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

As a resident of Paignton and as I work near by, this is probably the best little cafe in the bay.

A lot of locals use it and its nearly always busy so thats a good sign in its self.

Really friendly staff and great food with generous portions nicely priced.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Small place, only 2 portocabins. Looks pretty shabby from the outside, but the food is well priced, they use good qualilty ingredients, the staff are friendly and it is very clean. The breakfasts are to die for! I have not eaten there at any other time, but I'm sure all the food is equally great. Very highly recommended! If you are not a local, you will need to get directions, as it won't be easy to find if you don't know the area. For locals, it's just up the road from Paignton tip!

“5 stars for the food and service”
Reviewed 23 January 2013

Yes it's a greasy spoon. Yes it should probably only get 3 or 4 stars. However. The food is excellent. Cheap, and there's a fantastic choice. The staff are very freindly. The service is excellent. It can be chilly at times. The car park is very rutted so be careful. It's a cafe and take away like it says. You meet all walks of life. It's fantastic.
