As noted there are lots of nice places in MInehead. I'd recommend the Wheelhouse Cafe, 5 min walk from station. Also the cafe on the seafront is OK for the basics.

Minehead is fine for older people. My Mum gets taken up the Avenue (high st) in her wheelchair. Minehead has a lot of older people as residents and visitors and they all manage. Enjoy your visit.
