Food was amazing! So we went back for lunch the next day! Second time round had a tuna salad sandwich. Was generous! Lovely salad on the side and crisps could eat there everyday. Service was quick and the girls working there were very keen and helpful. Great place. Thanks

I have been here a number of times and the food has been quite good. However, I recently ordered a jacket potato with cheese and coleslaw to takeaway. After I had gone back to work and opened the lid I saw that the cheese had been forgotten. Worse still was the fact that the potato was rock hard, completely under-cooked... More

When we are back in Plymouth, this is our favourite place to start a new day: you are always met with a smile and friendly, homely atmosphere, you can choose whether you want a light breakfast or a huge one - everything is available. Moreover, while waiting for your breakfast you can enjoy beautiful views over the harbour.

Steve, a friend of mine opened this cafe many years ago and took pride in good service and good quality ingredients. This changed however when he sold it and Sound Bites became just another greasy spoon. It has changed hands again and the girls running it are doing a great job, good food and very good service are back on... More

I went to this cafe when in town with my friends as a small stop to compliment my day. As I walked in, I was greeted by a good smell, and instantly felt warm and comfortable inside the building. I asked for a cup of tea, and the girl at the counter was quick and efficient in making the drink.... More

Arrived mid morning for breakfast and coffee with my wife and 2 friends. The coffees arrived promptly and the waitresses were very friendly, which was excellent for a small and busy cafe. After a short wait our breakfasts arrived and they were delicious, we particularly liked how the tomatoes were fresh and not canned. Coffee was of good quality, and... More

So sorry to hear you have had a bad experience with us ....
