Thanks for your great review. We are so grateful to people for taking the time to write such lovely things about us. We know you are often on holiday and have so little spare time, so thanks so very much. We are pleased your food was tasty and the service was friendly - vitally important to us. Nice also to know that all the cleaning the hard working staff do does not go unnoticed. I was trained that "a time to lean is a time to clean" so thanks team for taking on board my small obsession!

“Lovely Oasis of Good Food in Dawlish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2012

Lovely choices, excellent service, tasty dishes. In a sea of your usual take away foods, (which are nice but not every day!) jack sprats provides a great range with tasty ingredients and a smile. We had both lunch and a evening meal here. And all at a great price. Best place for food in Dawlish.

Wow. Amazing review. Thanks so much. So pleased food was tasty and served with a smile. We do genuinely love customers and all the front of house staff seem to be smiley by default. A huge bonus. Helped no end by lovely reviews like this. We all read the reviews every day during our team briefings so I can promise it will be smiles all round today. Thank you.

“A fantastic family evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2012

Happened across this gorgeous oasis by chance, with our 2 young children last night. Lovely atmosphere, friendly and personal service, thoughtful and intimate. Food was fresh and delicious. Definitely the best choice in this town. Loved it.

Thanks so much for taking the time out to write such a brilliant review. Reading lovely things like this in the morning makes up for all the rain and quiet times this summer. I am particularly glad that you enjoyed the experience as a family. I really enjoy eating out in Italy where children are so much a part of the whole experience. We love children eating at our cafe and are really pleased when they enjoy it as much as their parents. Hope to see you again soon.
