Just off the small car park in Modbury, this was a delight for a great cup of coffee and their cakes were truly lovely. Good customer service as well.

Tucked away in a small square behind the High Street, with available parking, the Lazy Cow offers a nice range of pleasant home made food for a morning coffee break or a tasty light lunch. A favourite place to visit whenever we visit Modbury.

Awesome panini and chorizo burger. With two small people sleeping in the car, the staff were more than happy to bring the food & drink to the car (very Fred flintstone of us) I’d happily come back for the food and service.

Just as we were preparing to leave Modbury to continue our journey to South Pool, we stumbled across this interestingly-named cafe, hard by the carpark. It is not easy to spot, but we noticed a couple sitting outside in an adjacent courtyard, enjoying the late...More
