    Hi All,

    I’m trying to locate a café I’ve been to 10+ years ago. I know… this is very far fetched but I’m hoping someone might know.

    With my friend we’re trying to see where this café is located for very sentimental reasons. I’m thinking somewhere near Lynmouth?? Or Ilfracombe??

    Let me know if you know! 🙂

    Let’s see if the pictures are a good hint or not. I tried searching the quote in the window but no luck.

    Were all three photos taken at the same location? I can’t identify the cafe, but the headland in the first photo is Morte Point, and the third photo is probably taken at Barricane Beach, near Woolacombe – the rocks on the left look very similar to the ones in this photo: http://suxxesphoto.com/woolacombe-to-morte-point-devon/#jp-carousel-3186

    I hope this helps. I’m sure that others with a better knowledge of North Devon than me will give their opinion in time.

    It doesn’t look as if you had the best weather!

    Thanks that’s a good starting point! I can’t remember if the photos were taken at exactly the same place :/

    The words in the cafe window are from the Ted Hughes poem “Sandflea”, published in The Iron Wolf vol 1. “‘O see my eyes!’ The sandflea cries …”

    I’m not sure that knowing that helps much, but there it is for what it’s worth.

    Actually it does help: you were probably at the Rendezvous Cafe at the Landmark Theatre, Ilfracombe. See https://northdevontheatres.org.uk/landmark-cafe.php
