Dropped in for a cup of tea and some chips after visiting the Pannier Market. Prices are very reasonable and the people friendly.

We stopped by this Cafe during a wander around the Pannier Market. The Staff were very friendly and helpful The Menu is expensive and caters for all tastes and budgets. After placing our order, our food arrived within reasonable time and was most enjoyable. We wouldn't hesitate to visit again

Often come here for a cooked breakfast, it's always very fresh, tasty, good value, the best cooked breakfast locally I've been able to find. Bob and his team are always friendly. Although I've not tried any other meals this place is always busy-the sign of a good establishment. From me it comes highly recommended for a superb traditional fry up.

Busy and in need of a good cuppa and bacon butty, Bobs was just the job. Situated in Tavistocks' Pannier Market Bobs' provides the shoppers with tasty grub and a really good cup of tea, certainly not posh, it is clean and the staff are pleasant.

Thankyou for your kind review and we are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to us. We leave 'posh to those places who overcharge you and put a salad garnish on your bacon sandwich ( quite a few of those around). We are a family run, honest café and intend staying that way. We hope to see you again. All... More
