Have had many delicious lunches here and on this occasion ordered a couple of their gluten free quiches to take home. They looked and smelt brilliant until I managed to drop one on the way home!!. Fortunately the chef/owner was more than helpful and supplied...me with a generous replacement which saved my day! Brilliant to get such delicious food combined with an amazing level of service. Give the place a try - so much choice in Totnes and this is one of the best.More

First visit back for 4 years - during which time they’ve put in some lovely wood panelling and lights. Cosy atmosphere- and a quality flat white coffee was very welcome on a rainy day. I tasted a walnut, leek and blue cheese quiche- tasty with...good crunchy pastry. Would love to work through the whole menu! Recommended for a pit stop on a day in Totnes.More

A cafe that really pays attention to the details. The cafe itself is small and the menu is short, but the decor, ambience and food is top notch. Some really interesting choices of sandwich fillings, excellent savour tarts and a perfectly executed bacon baguette. The...coffee was also excellent. Only thing stopping 5 stars was the prices were probably £1 - £2 above what I would expect to pay.More

Popped in here with my mum, having tasted the amazing coffee previously with my friends. We both had a slice of chocolate courgette cake and OMG it was simply the best chocolate cake I think I’ve ever had! Service was awesome and need to be...tried to be believed.. Plus the amount of gf items was a dream and so much better than the usual obligatory chocolate brownie.. So peeps if you haven’t already guessed get yourselves down there, you won’t regret it! Just make sure you leave me a slice of cake ;)More

First time trying this place and I can’t say I’ll rush back. On entering the cafe it was a very awkward environment, mainly from the welcome we received. I walked in and greeted the woman behind the counter, who I can only assume is the...owner, and was ignored and just stared at like I’d just kicked a puppy. It was incredibly uncomfortable and unwelcoming, we were just stood there looking around before being asked “take away or dine in” we said dine in and were told to take a clipboard off the wall and sit down. As soon as we sat down we felt very uncomfortable but we felt too awkward to get up and leave. I work in hospitality so I know when you’re short staffed it’s hard, but to be rude to customers is inexcusable. Again, on leaving and after paying I said “thank you and goodbye” to the same woman and again, was ignored. On the upside the food was very nice, I had an egg and avocado baguette and it was delicious and lovely presented. The cafe overall is a nice little one, I just think the customer service is largely lacking and that is what people will remember when leaving an establishment.More

Wow! Yes, I can imagine you did feel awkward and uncomfortable based on this experience. But I have to say that I would never ignore any customer who comes in and greets us and/or says a thank you and goodbye - why would I? I'm...More

Yes as long as you are seated towards the far end of the seating area (i.e. not too near the kitchen) and they are well-behaved and discreet!
