Love this place. Staff are very friendly. The food is delicious. And I always have a clean plate when I finish. If you are looking for healthy home cooked vegetarian and vegan food, look no further. Food that’s like a warm hug. 🥰
Thought we’d give the cafe another try now that lockdown rules relaxed.
So, so happy to see a familiar face in the kitchen and a return to the good old days of fabulous Toucan food!
Had the falafel and hummus sandwich and it was a...delicious, huge sandwich with lovely side salad.
Although I’m not vegan or even vegetarian I always enjoyed the food here and made it a regular spot for lunching with my vegan friend.
So thrilled that those happy days of lunching here with fantastic food, friendly service and sunshine pouring in are back again!More
From the outside, it doesn't look much and one could easily pass by this place and not give it a second look. Above a whole food store, was a surprisingly great cafe, a proper hidden gem.
A few rooms which make it really easy to...keep social distance. Not a huge menu but that's what we prefer as you know then more care is likely to be taken.
We had falafels and the butternut squash quiche. Plenty of well dressed salad and really nice veggie meals.
We are not veggie and if all veggie food is like this, I would be happy! Even my 11 year old who doesn't like salad, said the salad was nice.
A real hidden gem which makes a real difference to your usual sandwich and predictable food in a cafe.More
We discovered this place on a previous visit and we're looking forward to returning. Fabulous home made food, most of which veggie or vegan. Generous portions and you feel good eating it. Healthy stuff. Cracking fresh salads and hearty quiches. I love it! If you...get a window seat you can watch the world go by below you.More
After many years of the Toucan being the best place to get a decent coffee in Minehead, a the new owners have built on these years of success. What is new and lovely is the amazing environment Amy has created. It’s bold. It’s fresh and...it’s a lovely place to sit and have coffee in Mineahead.More
Review written by my 10 year old daughter: I visited here to treat my mum, sister and my great aunt. We went up to the first floor and then had a great view of the town. The atmosphere was lovely and everyone there calm and...chatting nicely to each other. When the food was served, almost immediately, it was brilliant! Me and my sister had the lemon drizzle cake and my mum's fruit scone with no sugar was delicious. That's why I would like to recommend the Toucan Cafe for it's food, atmosphere and amazing service.More
For over a decade we enjoyed this cosiest and friendliest of cafes with great vegan food (my omnivorous relations didn't even realise it was a vegetarian café). However, we gave it a wide berth after unpleasantness with some new owners. Now has a new new...owner... but sadly still not the Toucan of old. Pros: vegan coleslaw, several vegan dishes, lovely old building. Cons: burnt and over-peppered burger, undercooked pastry, bare walls, hints of chain-store-supplements over hearty wholefood. We really want to love you again!More
Return visit. Been a few times but saw the negative views a while back and made special trip to check out.
All good now. Excellent meal - really tasty pie, interesting sides, very good value.
Nice warm haven in winter. Friendly staff.
Such a good...choice of meals - always difficult to make mind up - and tempts you to come back time and again.
Only shame is it’s so far away for me.
As an overall package, I can’t think of a better cafe I’ve ever come across.More
