Café at the Garden Shop, Colyton

Coffee Shop

UPDATE: We are hoping to open our Café at the Garden Shop Colyton for takeaway drinks and cake on 4th July.

With new safety measures in place, we will serve customers one at a time. Please enter through the side door, opposite The Barn, and exit via the main door.

We have some lovely cakes in stock and plenty of fresh coffee and teas. Our 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.


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.

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, and is served with freshly baked bread or a cheese toastie.

Breakfasts (not available at the moment)

We usually offer fantastic breakfasts, from a full English to beans on toast. We use butchers bacon and sausages, or how about comforting crumpets or a toasted teacake?

Lunches and Afternoon Tea (not available at the moment)

For lunch, how about our mouth-watering home-made soup with freshly baked bread? Or a range of gluten-free dishes including homity pie, mushroom and leek (vegan), French Cassoulet (vegan)? 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.

Later this year we are hoping to bring back our lovely roast lunches and our lunch Clubs. We’ll keep you posted.

Cream Teas

When we are open fully, we invite you to try one of our Devon Cream Teas – we regularly offer gluten-free plain scones – or our Savoury Tea with our own home-made cheese scones? The latest addition to our menu was a Black Forest Cream Tea which features a chocolate scone, black cherry jam and clotted cream accompanied by our deliciously smooth hot chocolate. Super indulgence!
