Evening Café

One of the best lunch spots in Tavistock is Robertsons, the organic wholefood café.  Recently they’ve expanded, and announced evening opening serving pizza: Fridays in December, and three evenings a week in the new year.

So, I had to sample their evening fare, and today I twisted Chrissie’s arm into joining me for a meal there.  It’s not really pizza: indeed, the pizza of the day is just one item in a small menu, and we both had different things, (albeit with common hints of italian influence in the recipes).  Apart from having alcoholic drinks, it was really a café meal: very nice, but lunchtime rather than evening portions.  So now I’m adequately fed, but by no means as well-stuffed as expected.

They also had a live band in there playing.  They were bad, but not obnoxious.

Next door to them is the Birds Nest, the Chinese restaurant that serves probably the best evening meals in Tavistock.  I don’t think they need fear the new competition too much, but it’s nice to have another choice locally.

  1. I look forward to trying it. I’m attempting to eat a bit less in the evenings – so that I can lose some weight and sleep better – so I like the sound of their smaller, cafe-like portions. I’ll try to avoid any live “music” though.

    It’s good to have another respectable evening eatery in Tavistock; the town scores rather poorly in that respect apart from the aforementioned Bird’s Nest and Brown’s Hotel, the latter being a little pricey, with very good food but slightly dodgy service in my experience.

  2. Just like yourselves, I was wholly excited by the appeal of pizza at robertsons…. But a lack of someone to go with meant I didn’t go for a while… And I think that after a few weeks the atmosphere was a bit more resteraunty, and I really liked the pizza!

    Anyway… Long story short… Started eating there a bit more reguarly… And ended up with a job there!

    I know this might sound a bit biased… But I would recomend trying it again – I think that you will be pleasantly surprised!
