I came and met a friend here for lunch, where we both had one of their 'specials' which came with a generous side salad & new potatoes. We also had a smoothie and cake each too. The food/drinks were wonderful, with friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. Dogs are welcome too! I highly recommend. :-)

Lovely food. A wonderful veggie and vegan selection of food (no meat on the menu). Absolutely huge portions. Had a broccoli, mushroom and brie pie with huge salad. £7.50. Good value. Clean and tidy. Decor not amazing but tasty food.

The food was absolutely delicious and the staff were very friendly. Plus the decor was beautiful and the whole atmosphere was very chilled. Also, there's lots of vegan and gluten free options!

I'm working in the area and visited the cafe for lunch after a recommendation from a client. The menu has so much choice - all veggie, vegan, gluten free options, it took my ages to decide. The group I was with selected options from the specials menu - sweet potato frittata and sweet potato pie - filled with grains, feta,... More

My Wife and I occasionally eat in the Toucan Café in Minehead and have always enjoyed the vegetarian food which is fresh, tasty and wholesome. However, we've always suspected the staff are more important than the customer, as if they're doing you a favour letting you buy their food. However, last week, our suspicions were confirmed, we stood at the... More

This is a real find. I'm gluten intolerant, and Toucan's menu caters well for me. They have GF bread, so any of their sandwiches can be tailored to suit, and they also regularly make crust-free quiches, so no flour involved there either. I've had the falafel/hummous sandwich twice, and it's absolutely fabulous. The side salad isn't just an afterthought, it's... More
