Popped in here for a quick coffee and ended up sharing the most delicious huge crab sandwich. Loved the decor of this former bank(I believe) a great find in the middle of Salcombe

I only went for a coffee and cake. The coffee was fine. However, despite the generous portion size, the carrot cake I ordered was very under-baked and overly sweet which was disappointing.

We just had coffee and pastries today but the brunch style dishes coming out of the kitchen looked great. Lots of seating and not cramped like so many places are. Just beside the local ferry stop.
