Torrington's history-themed cafe serving fresh, locally-sourced food

Welcome to Cafe@1646

Our costumed wenches serve in the cafe between 9am and 4pm Monday to Saturday (Sundays are for ourselves - to spend time on our upkeep! Takes a lot longer than it used to!)

We serve all day breakfast, light meals, cream teas, pasties, toasted sandwiches, paninis, cakes and lots more. 

As far as possible our food is sourced locally, using free range and Fairtrade wherever we can.

We also have a range of gifts including Devon made biscuits, jams, fudges, and traditional toys.

We cater for most dietary requirements including vegetarian and gluten free.
