Good coffee, nice cakes and gluten free options for MLW and her funny diet. Motorbike parking in car park nearby. Souper!

Came here with a friend for a catch up. Absolutely loved it and can't wait to come back! We had homemade cakes and delicious coffee and drinks. The menu for lunches and snacks looks amazing and very reasonably priced so we're already planning our next trip! Staff lovely and efficient, cafe was clean, tidy and inviting.

Excellent cakes and lovely sandwiches. This is a real asset to modbury. They only have one high chair so if you have a portable it's well worth to take it.

Gets very busy Sat mornings and that means the service can be very slow. Food always looks good and the atmosphere is friendly and nice. The owner has some fantastic home baked cakes etc for sale in the shop area attached. Well worth popping in for a coffee or bite to eat but be warned about Sat mornings.

Very friendly staff. Lovely (large) homemade cakes. Our daughter said the chocolate brownie were 'to die for'. We had a huge Chelsea bun which was light and fluffy. Man!! They can even hire bikes and do you a packed lunch. If we knew before, we would have done this. Message to owners, advertise yourselves at the local caravan and camping... More

We were passing through on the way back home. The food was delicious! My bacon, brie and cranberry pannini was brilliant! Thank you! My fiance's tuna melt was brilliant as well. Great coffee and good service :-) Thank you 😊
