A victim of its own success. Too busy, too noisy, too slow. Coffee late and nothing special, cups too small by modern standards. Chairs uncomfortable, and too many stools - which of course discourage you from lingering. Not too keen on the clientele either - if you want to see and be seen as one of the new West Country...

This bright and lively cafe is always full. And rightly so, it serves excellent Italian coffee and the cakes,,, you won't be able to tear yourself away. Dogs are welcome, which always gets my vote. The place to be seen!

Though can be hard to find a seat sometimes ( it's that popular!), we pop in everytime we visit Totnes, which is quite often! Their coffee is to die for! Believe me! The staff is a bit clumsy occasionally but loveable and extremely helpful! We are going to try soon their food, in the bistro on the first floor. I... More

Popped in for breakfast on a business trip. Amazing coffee, full of locals. Italian oriented breakfast selection but my husband is still raving about the poached eggs with proicuitto.

First visit for a couple of years. Smaller than I had remembered it but friendly and efficient. Good coffee and tasty banana and salted caramel slice. Good value too.

Lovely food but menu lacked variety. Sadly no coordination with drinks and food. Charming service but sometimes more than charm is needed

My brother has been raving about this place for months so me and my girlfriend thought we better try it out. We ordered salted cod for starters but it was ridiculously salty, couldn't taste anything but salt (at the end the waitress told us someone else complained about it and that the chef must of left in the salt too...

Visited on a recommend by our daughter. Not disappointed as the menu is varied and interesting with everything made fresh on the premises. A good wine list with directly imported Italian wines that are not normally available in UK wine merchants. Coffee was excellent and again ground and blended on site. Highly recommended
