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

My boyfriend and I are in Minehead for the wwe butlins and didn't know anything at all about Minehead as we are quite far away in London but we had a wander round today and it's a gorgeous place to explore in this sunny cold weather with hot drinks to warm you up. We saw a few places to eat... More

We found this cafe using internet search and when we tried it we were blown away by the quality and quantity of the food, the smoothies are also excellent. We have since been back twice because of the standard that is set in this lovely cafe, it does get very busy at lunch time but the service is always top... More

Having had a stroll around Minehead we decided it was time for brunch - The Toucan Café looked very inviting. The menu was vegan and vegetarian - seeing the quiches made my mouth water; but we all ate a breakfast. The food, service and ambience was excellent. The bread was gorgeous, but a little too much. 2 slices would have... More

I love every visit to Tucan. Their salads are huge and very filling. Love the extra bits too. Coffee is nice and strong and the fruit smoothies are full of flavour. Love it! Love It!

This little cafe had stolen my heart the very first time I set foot in it, ever since then I travel to Minehead just to sample their delicious food, bath in the exceedingly welcoming/friendly atmosphere and the tranquillity of this quaint cafe. The best thing is, I don't have to leave my best friend locked up in the car, whilst... More
