Tucked away in a Torquay side street, just off the main drag of Union Street is Green Leaf Cafe. The cafe had been recommended to me by a few people so mid shopping trip seemed the first time to pop in and try it out.
There is an outdoor seating area leading to the cafe which has 4 or 5 tables downstairs and more upstairs. I found a nice table downstairs located next to a selection of children's books which was a lovely touch. I then noticed a sign stating it was cash only so the waitress let me leave our things at the table while we nipped over the road to a cash point.
The menu had a great selection of breakfast options, sandwiches, wraps and light bites, with a seperate 'Little Leaves' menu for children.
I ordered a soya latte, hummus & squash wrap, and a child's sausage, chips and beans and apple juice which all came to less than £10.
The child's portion was the perfect size and my son made no complaints as he polished it off. Mine was lovely too.
Despite having limited space the cafe has been filled with charm, with a rustic finish and friendly touches such as the books.
I spotted one highchair available. There is a single toilet which does not have changing facilities however public facilities are very close by so don't let this put you off visiting.
Staff were very friendly, especially to my son who was in an extremely chatty mood (by chatty I mean loud!).
All in all we had a great visit and I'm really pleased to have found such a lovely independent place to get my coffee in Torquay, something I've been searching for for some time!
We will definitely he visiting again.
