Visited early November on a damp breezy day and I was surprised with the number of people doing the same thing. It is an oasis on the Tarka Trail, Suatrans route 3/27. Open Winter months on Saturday and Sunday, 10-4, and I think all Summer every day. A limited but varied menu with daily specials, I think even the most hard to please wouldn't be able to find something that would tempt them. I've visited before, I visited today, and I'll visit again. Recommended. 👍

It has been many years since our last visit to Yarde Cafe and after cycling from Meeth, we arrived with a healthy appetite. Fortunately we managed to get our food order just in time and then sat back in the delightful orchard, basking in the autumn sunshine. Food was very delicious. We opted for the vegetatrian pesto with mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes in a warm baguette and accompanied by a dressed salad and tortilla chips. Went down an absolute treat. Definitely worth a visit.

Just made it before closing time. Owners were brilliant and didn’t bat an eyelid when I asked for coffee and cakes, which were brilliant, especially the home made apple cake. Good quality coffee as well. Lovely ambience, comfy chairs and the owner even gave my wet dog some biscuits! Would highly recommend this place.
