Our breakfast of scrambled egg on toast, Danish pastry and a doughnut, went down a treat. The food was inexpensive and the service was friendly. Shame it wasn't lunchtime as the pasties looked great!More

We visited on Mother’s Day and the staff were very friendly and welcoming - even handing out chocolates as it was Mother’s Day. Very lovely iced frappe, pasty was lovely and the entire place was clean.

Always a good reliable pasty right in the middle of Tavistock. Nice and hot, so we usually buy some for long journeys as the keep warm for at least and hour and a half. The Chorizo sausage rolls are also a favourite of the kids.More

Picked up a a couple of pasties for tea. They were huge with great fillings. I had traditional, but they have a variety of different fillings on offer. Pastry was excellent. Staff friendly and efficient. Well worth a visit.
