Full English with my Dad after dropping his car off for a service. When you walk in and see local working guys eating then you know its good value. For what is 2 portacabins joined together its bright cheerful and clean. Plenty of free parking. Although a little tough to find its so worth it. Just off the the industrial... More

Excellent breakfasts of varying sizes, good mugs of tea, redtop newspapers and huge if lumpy car park. If you are in a low sportscar beware as your car will be even lower when you leave full of bacon.

Freshly cooked food. Plentiful and delicious and very reasonably priced. Definitely not a greasy spoon.

This place is a proper locals cafe even if you're not local the staff and the greeting you get on arrival makes you feel as if you've been going there for years. It's hidden away on a Paignton industrial estate so when you do find it and plenty have,its like you've discovered a hidden treasure of Torbay

Although I say just breakfast, they do have other choices but the main stay is breakfast. It is good. Always well cooked and you get enough to be happy. I defy most people to eat the Mega Trucker, I certainly couldn't. It's order at the counter yet the delivery to table is friendly and cheerful. Their take away service, like... More

I have visited this cafe twice recently with my 2 year old Grandson. not only is the food as wonderful as ever, but the staff took the time to make a fuss of my Grandson, in a way I have never experienced anywhere else. So not only great food and great speedy service, but wonderful big-hearted staff who add even... More

I go the the Sunshine Cafe every month or two for lunch and it rarely disappoints. The staff is friendly and the same people have been running this place for years, which is a very good thing. All the dishes are really very good, so choose what you fancy, add a mug of tea and enjoy. You can even sit... More

It is only 2 portakabins stuck together and caters for all the working people around and does a very good job it serves not just breakfasts but lunches aswell shuts about... More
