The coffee was one of the best I've ever tasted, anywhere in the world. The sea-view location is perfect, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The cafe is great if you have young ones. There is a play ground out the back so you can kick back whilst the kids play. The food was good and so was the coffee. I would go back.

On a busy, sunny Sunday morning in Torquay, we snagged a table in the shade of this popular cafe! Service, after ordering inside, was quick and efficient. The coffee was hot and the breakfast meals generous and well presented. I had the avocado, goats cheese, tomato and basil on toast, the partner had the granola. Both were filling and hearty....

Luke warm latte, luke warm iced coffee, cold fatty lamb on souvlaki, disinterested, apathetic, argumentative staff, especially blonde girl at register. Filthy premises.

Didn't. 2 slabs of three day old bread presented. 15 percent... More

Love Mobys. The food is great and the coffee is spot on. Also great with kids as there is a rear family friendly zone.

This is a quirky converted house cafe with eclectic tables and chairs, a fabulous kids play area or the back, brilliant staff and fantastic food! We had breakfast here and it was superb, they happily cater for allergies and dietary requirements. Their fresh juices are delicious, have to try one, or two! Highly recommend for everyone from young families to... More

Sitting outside under the umbrellas you can relax, looking across the road to the beach, while sipping your coffee & munching on whatever treat you fancy today. The food is always good & caters for vegans too. I don't like the crowded, noisy area inside for ordering, although most people don't seem to mind. That this has been a bustling... More
