Food, glorious food
only licensed cafe bar is a great place to drop into when you are
feeling hungry. We are open at 8am until 6pm (and later for events).
Come to Route 2 to breakfast, mid-morning tea and coffee, light lunches, delicious
homebaked foods, afternoon tea, and nibbles or snacks with an excellent
pint of local ale or a glass of wine.
Route 2 breakfasts
Breakfast is available any time of day – in fact, our
famous Route 2 breakfasts, served from 8am, are equally
popular throughout the day and early evening. And why not? We use
fantastic sausages and bacon from our local butcher Arthurs, fresh
local eggs, plus mushrooms, beans, toast, tomato and black pudding:
in other words, the full works! If you can't quite manage that,
then we have the Half Route (bacon, tomato and scrambled eggs on
toast), while for vegetarians we offer the Green Route, a full
vegetarian 'fry up' with mushrooms, tomato, veggie sausages, fried
egg on toast and baked beans. Breakfast in Topsham has never tasted
Local food ethos
We have a strong local food ethos, and pride ourselves on using the
best local and Devon suppliers. Virtually everything served here
is homemade on the premises, from our burgers, flat bread pizzas
and cakes to our delicious Route 2 ice creams (Topsham mud is our
most popular flavour!). There is always a selection of vegetarian
foods available. Our ‘real Dutch apple pie’ is actually made by
a real Dutch woman, Marion van der Giezen, who bakes it for us with
local fruit in the true Dutch manner. Served with a good dollop
of Devon clotted cream, it is absolutely irresistable!
Who doesn't love ice cream?!
Our amazing Route 2 ice cream bike is available for hire for your
special event. We'll turn up with a selection of fantastic homemade
ice creams to delight you and your friends and guests. We cater
for private parties, weddings, and any occasion where a homemade
ice cream really would be the icing on the cake.
