First Review by wildfang

An excellent and welcoming café - Edit

We popped in here for lunch and felt that both the food and service was excellent. I couldn't manage a piece of the vegan carrot cake after my meal (homemade houmous with pitta bread, salad and crudites - delicious!) so I had some to take away with me instead. A real highlight of our visit to Totnes and we'll definitely be back!

Lovely staff and lovely place - Edit

I felt compounded to review Fat lemons after reading a very negative April add on.
I do not recognise anything that this post made re negativity.
The family that run it are independant and try hard EVERY DAY to give everyone a fab experience and I should know as visit twice a week.
The drinks and food are always lovely as are the staff.
I do feel very strongly that persons that write negative reviews on sites like this should think about the implications of their negative comments .You could put people out of business with comments like this . Talk to people instead and think before you write !
Hope you comment when places are good and persons nowadays are quick to whinge but not so quick to praise.
Don't worry Fat Lemons -your regulars love you !

Pretty expensive and not very nice staff. - Edit

Felt pretty unwelcome when my daughter went into this cafe. We both felt the older lady which served us was quite rude and unfriendly.
The two cheese scones and hot chocolate was 8. 50 pounds which is very expensive.
Although we appreciated the hot chocolate very much the cheese scones were dry.
Maybe the lady that served us was having a bad day but it really effected our experience here. Wouldn't want to visit this place again although maybe the meals are nice.

Pros: hot chocolate, garden

Cons: Rude staff, Expensive prices, Un welcoming

Pretty cafe with some vegan options - Edit

Fat Lemons has seating indoors and outside in a pretty courtyard which is dog-friendly.
They had quite a range of cakes but only the carrot cake and the scones were vegan. These were tasty enough - though I really yearn for somewhere to get some soya whipping cream and offer a full vegan cream tea in Devon, rather than marg and jam!
Updated from previous review on Friday September 13, 2013

Pros: some vegan options, soya milk for drinks, nice pot of tea

Cons: Not 100% vegan, vegan cream tea would be brill please!

Very friendly and tasty cafe - Edit

We had a very nice cup of tea (so much better than what we were given at Gidleigh Park) and tasty vegan scones. An independent cafe that is well worth supporting. The owner is very nice and approachable. We had a really good time and highly recommend Fat Lemons.

Pros: Vegan-friendly, Great cream teas, Friendly owner

Tasty and fresh - Fat Lemons - Edit

We immediately felt welcome at the Fat Lemons - the very friendly lady behind the counter offered help concerning vegan meals and the interior and colours made it a cosy and enjoyable stay. The rather limited choice of vegan dishes (somehow, in the UK it always comes to hummus sandwiches and the like) was a little disappointment but the food was fresh and tasty. There was also a vegan carrot cake which we didn't have the time to try. Pricewise, the Fat Lemons are a bit on the expensive side - 8 pounds for hummus, olives and crudités and a little salad.
I really liked the place anyway and would probably go there again.

IanGregory 22 Feb 2013 - Firstly thank you for your review of our cafe, we really appreciate feedback, just to make you aware we are looking to expand the vegan choices on our menu, shortly we will have a vegan meze, which will include falafel, bean koftas, houmous, baba ganoush, salad, olives and pitta bread, we already offer falafel as a vegan option but will also have the bean koftas, our daily changing soup is always vegan as well.
Just to make you aware the price you paid for the houmous would have been £6.45, which we believe is a fair price for the size of the dish.
We hope this answers some questions and look forward to seeing you again at fat lemons.
