“An excellent coffee stop.”
Review of The Old Bakery

The Old Bakery
Ranked #8 of 10 Restaurants in Modbury
Restaurant details
Reviewed 23 May 2017

We enjoy visiting Modbury and a visit to the Old Bakery for a good cup of coffee and a read of the papers from nearby is a must. The ladies are friendly, I have always gone and ordered my coffee at the counter and never had problems. There is a nice mix of locals and tourists. We stayed and had a light lunch on the 13th May and the food was good and nicely served. We would happily recommend it.

I'm afraid I can't hold back on this one. Arrived to have a look around dress agents and then have coffee. Husband found table and waited and waited whilst staff seemed more interested in chatting to themselves behind the counter. So after 5 minutes a couple got served and another person served whom approached the counter directly despite table service. Both got their coffees first. Another 10 minutes passed and one came over and cleared plates left from last customers and went to walk away. Had to basically catch their attention to ask for 3 flat whites. No apology. 10 minutes later turned up with drinks, no offer for sugar. One swig and we can only (and did) describe it as dishwater. Burnt milk, watery and no taste of coffee despite them taking an age over it. One and only time we've decided to just refuse the drinks and all out. Service diabolical and coffee undrinkable. A real let down and shame for Modbury.

£3.90 per slice of cake!

Expected something rather good and/or rather large for that money. Alas it was not to be. Staff more happy talking to each other behind the counter than keeping an eye on their customers. Ironically they were discussing the 'fantastic cakes'. No they are not fantastic ladies. They are everyday cakes which you are selling with a huge mark up. I say this as you actually mentioned the price you pay for them from your supplier while you were nattering away behind the counter. Customers have ears.....

Would we go back, no.

Clean pleasant surrounding although cramped, however, prices were expensive and cappuccino was not the best tasting.

Nice coffee, pretty good cake but I felt that we were interrupting the ladies who worked there as they caught up on gossip!
