Reviewed 19 May 2014

David and his wife provide excellent homemade cakes for afternoon tea and his Blackcurrant Jam is to die for. This added to the view across Lyme Bay make for an unreal experience, make sure you visit you will not be dissapointed.

“Always excellent”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

Fantastic cafe at the top car park in Lyme. I visit often when I am out at work and am always met with a friendly welcome, an excellent espresso and a tasty cake.

“First class breakfast in a Cafe we should have tried sooner!”
Reviewed 13 September 2013

Having lived in Lyme Regis for nearly 11 years now, we wish we'd tried the Holmbush Café - situated in Holmbush Car Park - much sooner! Today we enjoyed a very well-cooked meal with my gluten free requirements well catered for. Egg, bacon, beans, mushrooms, gluten-free toast, home made EXCELLENT blackcurrant jam all washed down with a decent pot of tea. Now the season is drawing to a close check out opening times. Friday and weekends are best and you
will be well rewarded with a nice welcome and good food.

“YES!!!”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

Unbelievably brilliant to have a sunny cafe in a car park! People can get coffee before or after work, etc. We were there for two weeks staying nearby and we ate here three times. The owners make you feel you have been adopted by them, so cheery and pleasant. The food was wonderful - soups, sandwiches, cappuccinos, etc. We look forward to our next visit to Lyme Regis (we live in Florida) so that we can eat here. PLUS the owners have a great sense of humor and have a blackboard outside announcing all kinds of funny things, even lost and found item notices. We passed by there every day to read the latest notice. And who can resist when they write that the scones just came out of the oven!
