My new favourite cafe. Excellent full breakfast, coffee and cake. Love the garden's variety of plantings and seating areas. Lovely thoughtful and attentive staff. We can't wait to go back!

Lovely little cafe, inside but in summer opens a outside dining area, hence Secret Garden, food cooked while fresh so a little wait but well worth it. Owner is very friendly, chatty and funny. Nice menu with weekly specials. If he's got it he will cook it for you so ask.
This is a must if you visit Bideford. Right in the town centre you enter into a tiny shop area. Then you go your table in a beautiful secluded garden. The food and choice of menu is excellent. Prices are very good a great place for lunch. Will definitely return.
