It is now about 8 years that my Partner and I have been regular (at least once a week!) visitors to Cafe Liaison, and have never had anything but a first class experience. Everybody is absolutely on the ball, nothing is too much trouble. In my opinion, the very best coffee/snack bar in the area. Add to this tranquil surroundings... More

On Saturday morning we called in for coffee and sausage sandwiches....a late breakfast. The owners and their staff are so friendly and understand good customer service. We love Cafe Liaison and though are visits are infrequent, it's still the place we always go to eat. Still the best cafe in Tavistock. Great staff, delicious food and great atmosphere. Already looking... More

After a pleasant stroll around Tavistock on april 29th we chose this café at random for a light lunch. The food was delicious - had the chilli and it was just right ( I can't eat it very hot) and my husband had the sweet potato dish. The staff were polite and helpful and the café itself had the option... More

I have only been here once with my 5 year old daughter after a trip to the library, we usually go to Dukes but thought we'd give somewhere else a try for a change. The service was excellent, staff were very attentive and helpful. There didn't seem to be much available on the menu for children so ended up buying... More

I visited this Coffee shop today 12th April. The Hot Chocolate was nice and the person serving it was nice - but OHHHH - Why doesn't your door close properly ? I was sat opposite the door - and every time someone came in and didn't shut the door properly I was subjected to an arctic blast of cold air... More

I have to agree with others that the staff are friendly and helpful. Very prompt service. The menu for food and drinks is very adequate. We had panninis with side order of chips. These were very tasty and well presented. As mentioned the place is dog friendly. To be recommended.

A cafe located near the Abbey and Town Hall in Tavistock's historic centre makes an excellent stop off during sight seeing or shopping. Near many car parks and the historic market it makes a good place for a liaison as its name suggests. Benefits from a large vegan menu as well as non vegan items. Offers a good range of... More

Have actually visited here on few occasions. We try to eat in independent places and while visiting here today with a friend we were discussing how relaxing a place it is. The staff are warm, friendly and welcoming. It offers table service which means you can take your time choosing what you want. The food has always been delicious and... More
