  Torquay harbour, or Marseilles?
by LouiseTopp

As a year round holiday objective you will be spoilt for choice should you choose to eat out. Torbay boasts many award winning seafood restaurants that serve fresh, local produce - here you will find everything from nationally highly praised fish & chip restaurants to top class a la carte establishments. You will also find French, Mexican, American, Italian, Greek, Indian & Thai to praise the traditional English restaurants. No visit here would be inclusive however without a common Devon Cream Tea, which can be enjoyed all through the English Riviera in elegant hotels, in tea gardens & in the shopping centres.

Favorite Dish: ?Below Decks? is a café in Torquay. It has tables outside facing the harbour. Their cream teas are about £3.75, they also do an all day breakfasts. There?s a menu on the table?s although the tables them selves are a bit wobbly, also there?s special offers on display. You might see an RAF Sea-king rescue plane going over from time to time. While sitting at one of the table?s I noticed that a coach load of sea cadet?s turned up in their wet suits, must have alcohol for blood as the water was pretty nippy.

There?s also a café pub just down the harbour which has blue plastic chairs outside. The café is next to the Shirax pub & cream teas here are £2.95, Orange juice is priced at £1 (although it?s a bit small), tea is 90p, they also do decaffeinated coffee with a choice of brown & white sugar in little long tubular sachet?s.

Next door is a café called Vaughan?s which does all day breakfasts. A small one is £2.45 & a larger one is £3.95. When you order sandwiches you can have a choice of white or brown bread, the down side is that when the wasps come along they can be a pain in the stinger! All café?s along this area have outside seating.
