We stumbled upon this place early Saturday morning, it appeared to be the only cafe open. Prices are really good, huge variety of food. We both had a full English. Portion was way too big for my little appetite! I could have done with a mini version. It's your typical (fairly) greasy fry up. Just what we needed!

Hello and thankyou for your review, we are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to us. Tavistock does not wake up early,as you've noticed, but we are always up and running by 7.30. Our breakfasts are renowned and just to let you know that the only ingredient that is fried is the sausage and that is finished off on the... More

We only had a hot drink, but the food looked lovely, very friendly clean place, nice milky hot choccy, would definitely return for a meal next time. I liked that the menu advised you to speak to whoever you share your table with, we did and she was very friendly.

Before leaving the Pannier Market we stopped in at Bob's for a sausage roll to go. The service was friendly and fast and the sausage roll was hot but had no flavour.

Fantastic hideaway in the rear of the pannier market Tavistock, forget the fashionista cafes with the "trendies" all sitting outside , Bob's is the real deal. From the moment we walked in we knew we were in for a treat. Instead of the awful smell of old oil and deceased sausages from last nights fry ups , we were greeted... More

Last time we visited Tavistock we went to a cafe nearby and was very disappointed, so we thought we'd try Bob's. Superb meal and a decent price. Will come again

When we first moved to Tavistock, we visited this so called cafe, and I ordered a veggie burger with chips. I'm vegetarian, and haven't eaten meat for years. Our food arrived, I bit into my burger, and was absolutely horrified to find it was meat. How can anyone make such a stupid mistake? They obviously don't give a damn about... More
