We have enjoyed a lunch with kids. Tables outside with view on the beach. simple menu of sandwiches, salads and burgers. We had crab salad and chicken pie, kids enjoyed french fries. All fresh and well cooked.

This cafe clearly prides itself on home made, locally sourced, quality food and at busy times it can take a little while for food to be bought out (in enviro friendly packaging) but it is worth waiting for. The meal deals are good value, burgers tasty and filling. I am glad that I didn't order chips with my veggie one,... More

Stopped for coffee after a dog walk on beach. Coffee good, cheese scone dry, the chips were perfect though! Great location on the beach, though from 25/3 dogs aren't allowed anywhere near the beach, so unlike the rest of Sth Devon this makes the cafe very unappealing to dog owners visiting this beautiful area which on the whole is the...

We often go to Venus beach cafe when visiting our friends who live in Stoke Fleming. Always have a great meal and a great place to sit watching people swimming or kids playing on the beach. Can get pretty busy for breakfast on a Sunday morning, sometimes you may have to wait for a seat but worth waiting for

Finished off a great weekend in the area by having the best full English I have had in a long time. Fairly priced bearing in mind the quality of the produce. Really friendly helpful staff. The weather was so great we could eat outside in February. Free parking and clean toilets. Highly recommended

We love this cafe and always have great food in a fabulous setting with great service but why oh why are the toilet facilities so inadequate. The beach toilets were closed which left only two staff toilets for an extremely busy cafe. I'm sure health and safety must be an issue here.

The Venus Cafe at Blackpool Sands near Dartmouth is a great place to get a good breakfast. The meals are tasty and the ingredients are from local produce. It does get quite crowded but it's worth waiting around to get a meal.

Great place for lunch, warm family atmosphere, real log fire plus overhead heaters, needed at this time of the year. Lovely hot tasty soup and granary bread. Good to know too that the ingredients are organic. We had coffee and a read of the papers. What's not to like. Lucky we are locals so can go any time.
