Garden Cafe at Totnes Rare Breeds Farm


Overview

Just a 15 minute walk from Totnes town centre is the scenic Garden Cafe at Totnes Rare Breeds, perfect for those looking for a short riverside walk followed by a delicious refreshment. Located next to South Devon Railway, it can also be combined with a trip on an historic steam train to Buckfastleigh.

Offering made-to-order dishes at reasonable prices, the Garden Cafe has earned a reputation in its own right as a destination for good food, where local produce is used wherever possible.

A range of coffees, teas and cakes will fuel you through the morning, while sandwiches, paninis, salads and platters provide a tempting lunch for everyone, and younger visitors will enjoy our children’s lunch-boxes. If the weather is unfavourable, order a steaming bowl of soup. If sunny, what better way to spend an afternoon than indulging in a Devon cream tea and watching the world go by?

Watch the steam trains, admire the views of the beautiful countryside and be transported back to the good old days when life was a little less hectic.

*Please note: No need to visit the farm to use the cafe. Cafe may close early during quiet times or bad weather and cannot be reached by car. Open from March – end October.
