We stumbled on Coffee Rush by accident as another cafe was very busy and the pub was not serving food. How lucky we were! Good coffee, a superb homemade soup and good, tasty sausages and relish. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and place had a good "feel" and was a welcome warm haven on a very cold day. Thank... More

Found Coffee Rush by mistake but certainly glad we did. My partner and I shared 3 tapas to start with a couple of glasses of Italian red each, the best I have ever tasted. The guy even brought a bottle to show me and to read what it said on the label bless him. I can honestly say that this... More

I've been here for coffee, brunch and evening tapas, all great. Nice place for a relaxed cup of coffee, very nice brunch served (I had eggs benedict) and dined in the evening with wine and tapas. Well cooked food, friendly service and nice surroundings. An asset to this lovely little village. I'll be back...again and again.

We have visited Coffee Rush a few times when in Shaldon. It's very friendly and welcoming, great cappuccino and cakes. There is a cosy settee seating area at the far end of the cafe where you are welcome to take your four legged friends as well. Worth a visit.

After a walk around the lovely village of Shaldon and taking in the coastal views, we went for lunch at the Coffee Rush. What a good idea! Great basic lunchtime food and the best coffee for miles. Helpful service with a smile, a pleasant ambience and important little details like quality cutlery that's nice to hold, instead of cheap rubbish... More

Dear Jay B We are sorry that you were not happy with the bacon sandwiches provided. We would like to point out that we use a local award winning butcher to supply us with bacon and the bread is also from a local award-winning bakery. I assume, from your review, that these sandwiches were bought to take away. Had you... More
