A lovely couple run this friendly cafe in Ashburton. Just the place to go after a busy shopping spree or a walk on Dartmoor. The coffee is absolutely perfect, being a shop owner myself in the town I often call in for a delicious mocca, I cannot tell you how wonderful it is, you have to try for yourself.

They also have a great lunch menu and superb home made cakes, as they run the cafe entirely on their own please be patient. I promise you will not be disappointed.

It was a really nice surprise to find this cafe after a hike on Dartmoor! As an Italian, I was pleased that their plate of "Italian meats" was original and satisfying, and the espresso the best I have tasted outside Italy for a while! My partner, who is vegan, had a choice of different soups, and they also had vegan desserts. Very friendly staff too, and nice atmosphere. Will certainly go back when we are around... I want to try the other dishes and their cappuccino looked so good!

If you've become a fan of good coffee, this is the place for your. Unlike so many other places they actually know what they're doing and deliver their excellence in a modest and consistent manner. The food is equally as superb with attention to detail second to none. An unassuming cafe hiding a quality rarely found these days. Tip: it's a good idea to book, even for coffee...

Going to Francolin's is one of those luxuries you really look forward to , and so often need! We're lucky to live locally and so have been on a few occasions. It's always the most glorious, locally sourced, homemade and absolutely delicious food. The specialist teas & coffees are a real education & well worth trying. Spoil yourself!
