Essentially, this is your average beach café, reasonable pricing, ok service, but gorgeous views too! If you go when the light is dimming and sit outside and soak in the atmosphere you won't believe you're in England let alone Devon!

Went here to catch up with friends, it's good enough to sit out and watch the world (beach) go by for a cuppa, dogs are allowed so it really is what it is................a cafe in the beach.

We wanted a place that was dog friendly and served Cream teas, and we found this place to fit the bill perfectly. There was space inside to sit but we sat outside looking out to sea, as the weather was sunny and there were loads of surfers out to watch. Between us we had 2 Cream teas and a slice... More

Not everyone wants a glass fronted, sterile brasserie to eat in. Some of us would like a relaxed, informal, plain cooking, coffee in a mug, dogs at your feet, sand on the floor, ketchup in ketchup bottles...kind of place. Where there are no disapproving looks for wearing your running kit, walking boots or garish beach clothes to have a decent... More

Located on the seafront this café is an easy option for a quick coffee and a bite to eat however the location is all it has going for it. Well actually I will take that back as the staff was friendly, polite and very accommodating. Other than that all I can really say is… it is what it is. There... More

After a lovely long walk with the dog along the beach decided to walk to this cafe after being recommended by a friend who lives locally. Ordered scrambled eggs on toast which was very tasty. Another bonus is that dogs are also welcome and packs of dog treats are also for sale which our dog appreciated! When out walking again... More

This cafe is a landmark on the Exmouth skyline. It's a basic cafe right on the beach with beautiful views along the beach, across the estuary and out to sea. Perfect to stop after a long stroll along the beach. With an outside seating area, you'll find everyone here, locals and tourists alike, swimmers, dog-walkers, families... It has also been... More

Went on Sunday and had a full breakfast. Plentiful and all fresh. Added bonus was being able to eat outside (cool but lovely February day).

The order was completely messed up and we did not get what we paid for. I ordered a harbour view special breakfast without the black pudding. It came with 1 egg not 2, 1 bacon rasher not 2, 4 tomato halves ( not 2) and no toast . My partner's order was 2 eggs, 2 bacon, with beans, mushrooms and... More
