Only visited for half an hour whilst waiting to be picked up and had a nice cup of tea which was nice and strong.Not much chance of visiting on a regular basis as i don't travel by train that much but well worth it if you have a long wait.

We have had a couple of snacks and coffees over the summer period and think it is good value for money.

Nice little cafe very clean, can't comment on the cooked food unfortunately, as we only popped in for a brew & a little snack, after we alighted the train in Torquay, on our return from Dawlish Warren.
