A cafe in Dartmouth has won a national award for its breakfasts.
While our luxury holiday cottages Devon are self-catering and come equipped with impressive kitchens, we know our guests will sometimes want to head out for breakfast at a local cafe.
Which is why we were so pleased to hear about Café Alf Resco’s success in the Farmhouse Breakfast Week awards.
The café on Dartmouth’s Lower Street been recognised for providing the best cold breakfast in Britain because of the quality of its granola.
It scooped the award after winning a public vote organised by the Home Grown Cereals Authority (HGCA).
The awards, which had categories including cold, hot and most innovative, formed part of Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which recognises the popularity of eating out for breakfast.
Dartmouth pair Kate Ryder and Leanne Tucker from Café Alf Resco entered their trademark Granola because they felt their dish, which is packed full of British jumbo oats, dried fruit, nuts, seeds, local honey, vanilla and local yoghurt, was the best start to the day.
They were proved right after scooping victory in the cold breakfast category.
Kate said the win had taken her by surprise and that she thought it was wonderful her customers had taken the time to vote for Café Alf Resco.
