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

Whilst staying at Ilfracombe for a few days we discovered Adeles for coffee initially then returned later in the week for a lovely breakfast. During the meal the cafe filled with workmen and holiday makers to give a great atmosphere.

Small cafe, so struggled for a seat but glad we waited, as food was fresh and tasty. I had veggie breakfast and really enjoyed. My husband and others had the full English and they could not fault it. Clean and tidy and service was relatively quick. Would recommend and will be back.

I ate here twice and sat in. The all day breakfast was very nice so to the ham, egg and chips. The service was speedy and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Im not sure i liked the dogs welcome though...

The all-day breakfast was beautifully cooked and it came with toast and butter. The cheese omelettes were the best that I have ever had. They came with chips and salad. There was a... More
