The Kitchen café was opened in February 2016 by Fiona Newton. Its quirky interior and furniture  is decorated with warm Annie Sloan colours. Vintage cups and saucers hang from the ceiling and, with its unique wall from off cuts of wallpaper created by Fiona’s talented friend Kate T-W, there is no other café in Tavistock quite like it.

It has evolved over the years and expanded into the old gun shop next door, giving extra comfy seating and a second kitchen for baking and creating seasonal specials.

We pride ourselves on a warm and friendly welcome to all, offering morning coffee, breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, and a large selection of cakes and specials; all made on the premises by Fiona and her team.

We are open:

Monday to Thursday: 9am till 4pm
Friday to Saturday: 9am till 5pm
Sunday: Closed

Bank holiday opening times may vary
Opening times do vary in the school holidays. However, we generally open 9am till 5pm daily (except Sundays & Mondays)
Unfortunately, we do not take bookings during the day as we work on a first come, first served basis.

Please be patient during these difficult times.

We ask that you stay at your table and we will take your order from there and will bring your bill and take payment from you at your table.

You will be asked to complete a contact detail form on arrival. This is a mandatary government requirement to enable track and trace in case of a future outbreak of Covid-19, this is to kept for 21 days after such time we will destroy it, no details will be kept on record beyond the 21 day period.

As we have reduced seating, we ask that during busy times you free up your table once you have finished so we can disinfect thoroughly ready for another customer.

Thank you for your support and hopefully we will be back to full capacity soon
