We live in Ilfracombe and reckon Grassroots offers the best latte in Ilfracombe. The homemade cakes are fabulous. The lunch time food is delicious and the £12 evening bistro menu (Fridays and Saturdays only) is amazing value, especially with BYO wine for £1 corkage. As some other reviewers mention, the décor is quirky and perhaps dated, and the lighting means the café lacks ambience for a romantic dinner for two. However, Sarah and her team are delightful and quality and passion that go into the food make up for any lack of ambience. If we ever get a summer like 2013 in Ilfracombe again try the peaceful courtyard garden. If you fancy lingering over a second coffee (refills great value at half price), get talking to Sarah about Radio 4! Enjoy.
