We visited Ilfracombe for the first time a few months ago and discovered Adele's Cafe on our first morning. What a great little place, pleasant staff, decorated in the theme of a seaside beach cafe. The all day breakfast is delicious - I would highly recommend this as place to start your day 😄

We didn't do breakfast at hotel we chose to just have breakfast when we were out and about. This cafe was so nice we went back again. One of our grandchildren does not eat cooked breakfast so had cereals and toast which was good. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Adele's Cafe is the place to go for breakfast in Ilfracombe, it's also about the only place that's open at 7:30am. Ideal if you are going over to Lundy as we were. Very good prices and excellent food. Friendly staff and atmosphere. They also do a all day breackfast along side a cream tea in the afternoon.

Dog friendly cafe, something which you don't find often. Lovely vintage feel and the food was local produce and great quality. Service was wonderful and quick. Little gem which is worth the trip, whether it's breakfast, lunch or just a snack

Thank Sarah D
