Visiting Minehead again for a couple of days. Decided we would visit for lunch, as we enjoyed it so much, earlier this year. Once again, we were not disappointed. This restaurant could really turn us into vegetarians, as the food is so tasty. Fresh, home made food, lovingly presented. You would be crazy to miss this place.

We stumbled across the cafe, on a quick visit to the town with dog in tow - cafe staff were welcoming and the seating was comfy and relaxed. Good coffee and cakes!

Nice little areas to sit so you don’t feel on top of other people, gives toucan a lovely character.

Nothing on the table menu jumped out at me for lunch but there was plenty on the specials board. I had the mushroom pie which came in a fab portion with a great portion of lovely homemade salad. It was really good!!! Everything’s reasonably priced.

A variety of drinks are available from teas to smoothies. The smoothie I had was nice & thick.
Will definitely be returning.

The only negative was that my friend asked for a bottle of water & didn’t realise until she opened it and heard the fizz that she’d been brought a sparkling water which she didn’t want or like. She didn’t say anything because she’d opened the bottle.

My husband and I (Health Enthusiast and a confident Cook here) visited Toucan for lunch and was very impressed with the quality of food that was offered. My husband had the Mousakka and for me the sweet potato feta cheese quiche, both were absolutely delicious. Now for us this is a very rare compliment as we normally only prefer the food that I cook at home. The food was similar that I could have cooked it myself. My husband eats a lot but even he was satisfied with the generous size of portions given to us. We also had coffee which is made from organic coffee beans and organic milk, although plant base milk options are also available for vegans. The food served was just simply nutritious and amazing. We will certainly return every time we are in the Minehead area. Highly recommended!

No wonder this place has a Certificate of Excellence.
We had caught the steam train to Minehead, and were looking for somewhere decent to eat.
There are so many places near the station serving the usual dull tourist-trap fare.However, our walk along The Avenue and onto The Parade finally paid off when we discovered The Toucan Cafe.
Great selection of lunches. The soups are meals in themselves. We wanted to stay for afternoon tea as well but the last train home beckoned.
Good selection of plant-based milks: soya, almond, oat etc.
We will be back.
