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.

Sorry we are closed

To all our lovely customers, it is with a heavy heart that I have decided to close at 3pm today (Friday the 20th March 2020) for the foreseeable future.

I have not taken this decision lightly but with the downturn in trade and the well being of my staff to consider I feel it is the right decision.

Please watch this space and our Facebook
Page to see when we plan to reopen, and I can assure you that we will. Please take care and be kind to each other.

Fiona xx
