We had a very good meal at the newly revamped New Quay Inn on the Back Beach, Teignmouth. I barely recognised the place- and the food was good. Then we were on the prowl for tea and cake....and I suddenly thought of the Old Java Coffee House. It is a cafe that is well-known in Teignmouth.
It was just right. One table remaining. We were just in the market for tea and cake (instead of pudding!). The place was full of people - it was just after lunch. The serving staff were pleasant and the food and drink were yummy.
I had the citrus gluten-free cake that was moist and delicious. My mother had toasted crumpets with butter and jam - they took a little longer to appear. The only thing I would say is that my mother commented that it was served with little sealed portions of jam - it was a shame they didn't offer homemade jam - there is so much of it produced around here. My father had the apple and cinnamon flapjack that was large and a bit soggy, but good nevertheless.
Overall we were satisfied by the price, location, food and drink, service and atmosphere. A good place to pop into when you are in Teignmouth.
