Often walked past, so for once we stopped and it was very nice. Coffee was good and strong, cakes looked home made and were lovely. Bit busy, but I guess that tells you a lot 👍😆

I often visit Dukes for lunch when I am working in Tavistock. Good food and not too pricey. Their specials are very good, I had Chicken with a herby dumpling plus toasted baggette on Monday- a bit insipid looking but tasted great.

Breakfast made with good quality ingredients and service to match. Always a busy cafe even in winter despite having few indoor seats.

We stopped for lunch. It was good to sit outside on the terrace, and be served delicious food, coffee and delicious fragrant Earl Grey Tea. Good friendly service and value for money.

Thanks Alan. We try to keep our prices fair and portions plentiful. The outside space at Dukes is our jewel in the crown, but the inside is cosy and comfortable.

Our coffee is made with our superior quality coffee beans from sustainable sources and waitress served. Serving freshly made to order sandwiches, baguettes and wraps with a range of fillings. Home made soups of the day, famous 'HOT' Chilli or Spicy bean Chilli, sharing platters, jacket potatoes and a range of specials on a daily basis, we have something for everyone. Pop in for a tea or coffee and a slice of cake and sit an watch the world go by in our covered outdoor area. Why not try our Dukes 2 Go takeaway service, also located in the Pannier market. Making all the same lovely soups, wraps and sandwiches, but 2 Go! We look forward to seeing you soon.
