Visited with friends one Saturday morning for coffee and a catch up. Coffee was very good and whilst there we decided to have lunch as well. I went for the nachos which were delicious. The restaurant is quite small, so we were lucky to get a table as it was busy. I look forward to visiting in the summer as... More

This cafe is a great little find in a small park a stone's throw from the town centre. The staff are lovely and helpful with a great menu, intersting specials and the most gorgeous cakes. Also the coffee is really good rather than the tepid brew you normally find in such places. Couple that with a great ice cream selection... More

The Bumble and bee is situated in Manor Gardens, a park half way between Exmouth town centre and the seafront. It serves hot drinks and 'light' meals, including a daily 'specials' board. The food is very good, and good value. At weekends it can be a little crowded, especially indoors, but in the summer there is plenty of seating outside.... More

Delightful place and a very good cream tea, with choice of either plain or fruit scones. We sat outside though, partly because of a large vanilla scented candle (blurgh), partly it was full of families with kids and buggies.

Went in last Sunday for Church cafe and a Flutter Nutter Brownie hadn't long been put out, so of course I had to try a piece. It was amazing! Delicious brownie with peanut butter and marshmallows on top covered with chocolate. Great atmosphere and lovely staff.

Cosy café in the park and friendly staff. Just had coffee but the food looked nice. Only downside, we had a couple of screaming children on a Sunday afternoon so maybe not the best option if you want to avoid them. I would still go back to try some of the food!

Encouraged by very good reviews and recommendations. Reception was slightly unwelcoming. We were then a little confused if there was a menu or just blackboard list. Blackboard stated our preferred dish was unavailable! Having got off to a poor start, Ordering at the counter was then a little prolonged as the 'computer tab' found amendments to menu difficult to handle.... More

We only went in for coffee and cake. The coffee was very good, but the cake was excellent. Firstly, it was really delicious and still warm from the oven! Even the best cafe's often buy in their cakes, but here they make them themselves. In fact the girl who had just baked it came out to ask our opinion of... More
