Nice cosy coffee shop, with outside seating. Inside unique. I had a tuna melt pannini served with side salad and coleslaw with a few crisps. Lovely coffee and then a delicious crunchy milkshake. All served with a smile, freshly prepared and delicious.

I've been having lunches here since it opened. If I go anywhere else I always wish I hadn't! Lovely people, good choice of food, freshly done, decaff coffee is the best ever. They've started making fruit crumbles which are lush and cakes are so tasty its difficult to choose from. Lots of dietary requirements are covered too. My favourite is either a brie n cranberry wrap or chicken mayo salad with a decaff coconut latte.

Our favourite café in Bideford. Really imaginative menu which served our fussy children immensely well and they even catered for the dog! Friendly service, ethical innovation. Would definitely come again.

This is a cute looking, large, stylishly interior designed cafe in the centre of Bideford. The menu is extensive and well curated. It has a welcoming outside/pavement seating area ( I'm not sure about the stained old sofa dumped by the litter bin, but not really their fault) and I do like the subtle retro music theme. However, a few things could be improved to take it from ok to great. Admittedly, my daughter and I went for a very late lunch on a Saturday, about 3.30pm, so maybe not the best time to judge the food. I ordered a tuna sandwich, which was good, but the side salad had seen better days…if you only have wilted lettuce and bone dry, bendy cucumber, just don't serve it! The cappuccino was bitter/burnt, my daughters vanilla milkshake had way too much syrup in it and was served spilt all over its saucer. Her bacon sandwich was excellent though. I know I should have complained at the time, but the two teenage girls left in charge seemed distracted and obviously counting the minutes until closing time. I know owners can't run cafes like this all the time, but maybe a bit of further training of junior staff would avoid the business being actively damaged.

A really lovely cafe. Whilst we only popped in for a drink, the menu and cakes on display did look amazing! Lovely atmosphere, and the drinks were even better (and at a reasonable price)!
