My friend and I called in yesterday lunchtime for a drink and snack. I was not tempted by the cakes on display which didn't look very appetising and decided in the end on a bowl of cheesy chips and a mug of tea. The tea...More

Dog friendly relaxed cafe / restaurant. Locally sourced food which is freshly cooked to order. An independent eatery which is a lovely change from the chain outlets. A great discovery which is very popular with local people.

Ordered breakfast that took ages to arrive, despite it not being busy. Sausage not cooked in the middle and the food was not very hot. Our friends sent their coffee back for not being hot. Will avoid in future.

We are a friendly, family-run cafe/bar/restaurant set on the edge of beautiful Youngs Park. Just a stones throw from Goodrington Sands Beach. We welcome dogs and everyone else! Our food is freshly cooked from raw ingredients. From doorstep sandwiches to our famous hake and handcut chips. Fresh seafood from nearby Brixham market feature often on our specials boards along with meat and produce from surrounding farms. We love being here at Cantina and we really hope you'll like us too.
