A Few Facebook Reviews

  • Fabulous hidden gem for anyone passing! Friendly service, lovely coffee and cakes and such an amazing view. We even got to feed some horses. A really happy place. Rachel Doyle

  • Gorgeous little vintage coffee hut. We enjoyed a delicious coffee and a scrummy cake while admiring the fabulous views from the old golf course club house. Definitely worth a visit! Suzanne Walford

  • The location of this little cafe is fantastic - right on top of the hill and overlooking Exeter and the surrounding countryside. There are lots of tables facing out towards the view (all outdoor but covered), the prices are very cheap and the service is friendly. I recommend! Rosie Stewart

  • If your walking, running, riding, cycling or even passing in the car, Tasty Bits is amazing. Lovely food and great tasting coffee, tea or hot chocolate and delicious cakes to choose from.Thank you Sonia for our lovely panini's. Naomi Jane Ryan
