The Kitchen Café in Tavistock

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.
