What a surprise to find somewhere to have Tapas in Dawlish. Unlike some chain restaurants I won't mention the food was all freshly prepared and delicious. It was good value for money and a lovely choice of reasonable wines to go with it. The staff were lovely and welcoming too. We finished off with a yummy Eton mess....gorgeous! I really hope this little gem of a restaurant does well. I'd definitely go again if I lived a little nearer.

Lovely ladies work here, we popped in for a cuppa whilst visiting dawlish and the tea tasted that good we bought our own. Lovely place to stop for refreshments and cake!

Lovely owners, nothing is too much trouble. Brilliant with little kids. Cakes are enormous and wonderful. Bacon and egg muffin is heavenly!
