This is a smart little cafe owned and run by a young local entrepreneur, Leo, who is very passionate about his establishment. He will meet you and greet you with a charming smile as he takes your order from a modest list of fantastic breakfast and lunch dishes. These dishes are promptly cooked and served up by the lovely chef Becky who puts her passion for cooking into every fabulous meal. The desert menu is supported by the family owned bakery, Daisycakes, right next door with some of the freshest and most beautiful looking pastries. The hash browns and poached eggs were amazing the first day and today I had the Belgian waffle with eggs and bacon today and will return soon for about 3 other dishes I am dying to try. My partner, who is vegan, has said the vegan breakfast is "spot on" as you Brits like to say. On top of the great food and friendly service, Leo and Becky are two of the nicest people we have met on our summer vacation here in Torquay and their kindness is complimented by the locals who stop in for a bite to eat, sharing information or polite conversation in this beautifully rustic cafe on Babbacombe Road.

I don’t want to be too harsh, it is a lovely cafe the staff were welcoming and the coffee and tea were good.
Unfortunately we didn’t order cake so I can’t comment on that.
We had a large breakfast each, we found it not to the quality we expected with such great reviews.
A bit of constructive criticism, people except better quality produce now, we both couldn’t eat the sausages as they tasted very cheap and we even wondered if they were vegetarian.
As Typical British we obviously didn’t complain and don’t want to be too harsh on here.
Just to recommend that the owners buy better quality products and put their prices up to reflect that.
Myself and I’m sure other customers would be happy to pay more for better quality food.

Wow these folks know their cake and tea. The area is rightly famous for cake and our holiday rental host pointed us to this place which was wonderful. They have non-dessert foods too but I didn't get that far. Super-nice, friendly people too.

Second visit to Daisy's, not your typical greasy spoon type of cafe. Quirky and fresh decor, friendly atmosphere, very reasonable prices. Coffee and food is delicious, food is piping hot and tastes fresh, not dripping in grease. Fab little find. Definitely returning.

Made a visit to this lovely place on Tues for the very first time I had read the reviews and thought we should give it a try and believe me it was well worth going we all enjoyed a very tasty breakfast with one of us having a cream tea.
The owner John was very friendly and decor was charming
Will definitely be going back as the cakes were delicious too
See you soon
