First time in Minehead and what a find! Naomi is just wonderful, as are her team. What a treat. This is a lovely tea room. We sat out front watching the world go by, but the inside is really nice and the rear garden is...a beautiful, flower filled haven. Thank you all, and no grudges for assuming I was female, rather than a grey haired 58 Yr man old with lockdown locks :) This will be our first stop when we return to Minehead.More

So pleased we stopped here for a bite of lunch. Warm welcome and a very cosy tea room. Delicious Ploughman's lunch and plenty of it. All staff friendly and attentive. A nice change from usual cafe types. Definitely recommend

I was taken here for a 'sandwich' this lunch time. There was plenty of choice for light lunches and four of us had a very lovely time there. A bit quirky and a lot good.

Very lovely little tea room with a very friendly owner! We came in about an hour before closing but received great service from the lady who owns the cafe. The drinks were absolutely delicious and the atmosphere inside was really cosy, highly recommended!

We came across this place by chance, just looking for coffee and a sandwich. It's a little gem. Tasty sandwiches made to order and excellent home made cakes; and we found a couple of really comfortable easy chairs. Some of the decor is a little...wacky, but overall it's great. Certainly a big step up from your average chain coffee shop.More

Very nice food, stopped for scones, crumpets and a piece of cake with drinks too. Friendly and welcoming staff. Felt relaxed and had a good chat with the owner who is a very genuine person that cares for her staff and customers. I would definitely...recommend this place for somewhere to eat and drink.More

The Cheese Scones are Superb. We were shown through to the back garden, loads of room. Very dog friendly with several water bowls, away from traffic and passing foot fall. The Staff were very friendly. All in all a highly recommended place, especially if you...have a dog with you.More

Visited for a cream tea August 2021. Very good selection, Fruit scones, plain scones, strawberry or raspberry Jam plus more. Quick service and polite staff. Price was to be expected in a seaside town. Would go back.

We can’t recommend this cafe enough! We were visiting Minehead for a short break with my elderly mum and I wanted to organise an afternoon tea for her birthday which we could take on the steam train. After calling Naomi the week before our visit,...she couldn’t have been more helpful with arranging exactly what we wanted. Selection of sandwiches, gorgeous homemade cakes and scones with jam and cream! She provided everything we needed including cutlery, napkins, cups, candles and even balloons and a card for mum! Everything was ready when I collected in the morning and Naomi and her staff couldn’t have been more helpful and kind. Everything was so delicious and just made our train journey perfect. The cafe itself is so lovely, decorated in bright colours and vintage pictures and furniture. Just lovely 🥰 Thank you Naomi and her team. X Will visit again when we are in the area xMore

On a short break in Minehead, decided on an outside seat here. Service from pleasant staff was quick and efficient. Our drinks arrived quickly, followed shortly after by our light lunches. These were both excellent, tasty, generous and well presented. This would be a five...star review but for the fact that it was cash only at the time of our visit. Even so we would recommend and definitely visit again next time we’re nearby.More
