Regional food group Taste of the West has launched its own café in East Devon which will serve just local food and drink.
The café, called Taste of the West @ Seaton Jurassic, is set within the Seaton Jurassic visitor centre and is the first of a franchise that is due to run throughout the West Country.
Local suppliers to the café include Hogs Bottom Garden Delights from Lifton, West Devon, which produces jam for the cream tea, clotted cream is supplied by Trewithen Dairy from Lostwithiel, Cornwall and coffee is roasted in Seaton itself by The Coffee Factory.
“We are thrilled and delighted to be launching our new café franchise,” says Taste of the West CEO, John Sheaves. “It’s an exciting project which will showcase the very best of the region’s food and drink to customers. This is an ideal location for us as visitors to the centre and people locally can enjoy wonderful food, knowing that all the suppliers are top-quality and based within the West Country.”
