Excellent coffee whilst waiting for our meals. Tasty, good quality and value, Captain's breakfast served quickly and efficiently to our outside table, which had a fabulous views of the boats in the estuary and Teignmouth opposite. Great customer service from start to finish! :-)

Nice backdrop and child/pet friendly. Cake looked nice, but as I have already eaten my fair share of cake over the last 34 years, I gave it a miss. Clean bogs too.

Nice little cafe situated right on the beach. the tea and cake were good and good value for money. Cafe is self ordering from the bar, so you have to carry your own tray outside, not waiter/waitress service

We enjoyed dinner with you a couple of times last year as you allowed our old greyhound inside with us on the ground floor. We are staying in Sheldon for a week from 11th March are you still dog friendly. If so we would like to book a table for two with dog for 19.30 on Friday 11th March. Thanks, Derek Wakefield.
