Café at the Garden Shop Colyton
Our delightfully cosy, dog-friendly Café at the Garden shop Colyton – an oasis of calm in a sea of chaos – has seating for 22 indoors and up to 12 outside among the gardens and plants. The Somerset tea has been especially blended for the hard water in this area, and the coffee, widely held to be the best around, is roasted in Somerset by Martin Cawardines (a family-run firm since 1861), is sustainable, Fairtrade, and organic.
Try one of our Devon Cream Teas – we can now offer gluten-free plain scones – or our Savoury Tea with Hog’s Bottom Devon Chutney and our own home-made cheese scones?
Home Baked and Locally Sourced
We bake our own scones and sponges, and our meat is sourced from local butcher Complete Meats. All our soup is homemade and features some varied and exciting combinations such as Butternut Squash, Apricot and Ginger, a big favourite! Our soup is gluten free and nearly always vegetarian if not vegan.
Lunches and Afternoon Tea
For lunch, how about our mouth-watering home-made soup with freshly baked bread? Or a range of gluten-free dishes including Devon pasties, cheese and onion pasty, homity pie or butternut squash and bean tart? We also have a wide range of snacks available and our kitchen is open all day. For those who enjoy afternoon tea, there is a fantastic range of cakes, including gluten and/or dairy free.
The Café serves a roast lunch on the first and third Sunday of each month all through the year, but booking is essential so please call 01297 551113 to reserve your space.
Every Tuesday we provide a traditional home-cooked lunch, for example cottage pie, lemon chicken or baked pork chop all served with seasonal vegetables.
December heralds Christmas lunches every Sunday, but book early as they are very popular. The space in our Café means we can provide catering for large parties of up to 24.
Please note that we prepare our food in a kitchen with products containing gluten and nuts as well as other allergens. While we have taken all reasonable steps to ensure our food is as labelled we cannot guarantee that any product is allergen-free due to the risk of cross-contamination.
The Café at the Garden shop in Colyton is open from 10.00am until 4.00pm Monday to Sunday.
