When in Totnes shopping, I always drop in at The Brioche Cafe for coffee. Have tried a lot of other cafes in Totnes, but always come back to The Brioche. Good coffee, friendly atmosphere, excellent service.

We live in Totnes and often go to The Brioche Cafe for breakfasts or lunch - every time the food and service is superb. Our favs are the veggie breakfasts, jackets with goats cheese/beetroot and the wraps - all really nice and good sized portions. The coffee served here is also excellent.

The Brioche is one of the few places in Totnes which you can rely on to serve really good value food and drink with no airs & graces. Freshly prepared food, generous portions, friendly service and a totally relaxed atmosphere. Shoppers, business people and the relaxed hippy population all use this top of town cafe - its great.

The Brioche is just a great little cafe. Serves good simple and tasty food, good quality at reasonable prices. Eaten here lots of times. Always friendly and never disappointed. Decent fresh coffee. Particularly like the outdoor seating, which is covered - a relaxing place to watch the world go by. On the high street so lots of fantastic little shops... More

Had a fabulous lunch here; a toasted sandwich with salad and coleslaw. A little expensive but really yummy and the staff were so lovely and nothing was too much trouble. Coffee was great, too.

The food is good and is very reasonably priced. You get friendly, efficient service from the waitress'. There are some tables outside on the pavement and there appears to be many regular local customers. A cafe not to miss when in Totnes.

Although i wouldnt usually pay £7 for a BLT I thought I would try based on recommendation. The BLT was out of this world and the staff seemed incredibly friendly and attentive. Would recommend if you don't mind paying a bit more!

We stopped here for coffee. Everything was fine. What's really nice is that, because the cafe is part of a traditional parade of shops, the tables on the pavement are under cover. A great place for watching the world go by.
