The post office is next to the delicatessen but the food looked amazing. The meringues are huge and colourful.

a great array of foodstuffs and I returned almost daily throughout the week's holiday.............staff were pleasant but I must admit I found their public mickeytaking of a customer at the end of the phone somewhat distasteful.....

Walked past here a couple of ties before popping in. Bistro was quite busy so we decided to buy things to eat at home. Staff were patient with us as we 'uhmmed' and 'ahhed' over all they had to offer. Took our goodies home and had a lovely dinner - hubby had some of their kippers which he said were delicious.

Stopped for lunch after a walk along the beach & Tarka trail. Great selection of food, lots local/seasonal. The Devon crab baguette was very tasty as was the houmous/olive. Great selection of cakes. Sat outside on the sea wall, lovely location.
