Terra Nova, the new café on the block

If you haven’t found it already, this a great little café which has recently opened in Devonport. Terra Nova, named after local man Robert Falcon Scott and his Terra Nova expedition to the South Pole. Anyway, if that leaves you cold but you love a great flat white, then this place comes highly recommended.

Much needed in Devonport, it offers great food which focuses on wraps and salads and there are a range of smoothies available as well. Terra Nova also has a licence so there is the option of a glass of wine with your superfood salad if you so desire. Best thing for me though is the range of cakes, it’s a lovely place to pop in on an afternoon for a flat white and the biggest piece of cake which usually includes a delicious banana bread and an assortment of brownies and blondies.

There is outside sitting for when the sun shines, it is very dog friendly and they offer plenty of veggie options. Access is straight in off the road, no steps, just a little lip so wheelchair friendly as well and the toilets are on the same level. If you are in the area, pop in and give them a try, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.

Visit the Terra Nova website where you can see their range of food and drinks and even place an order.

A great cafe called Bubbles

New Street on the Barbican is one of the oldest streets in Plymouth but it is where you will find Bubbles Bar @ Barbican, a neat little place doing speciality Hong Kong street food.

If you are a fan of the sweet stuff and you think that being in the perfect spot of The Barbican is not enough, just wait until you fall into a heaven of sweet tastes. This place has nice friendly staff who have the patience needed whilst you choose between all their flavours, believe me, it could you take you a while to decide.

The menu is fixed but they do have some seasonal changes and you can ask for your own combinations. It’s a relaxed vibe and on a nice day you can wander on the Barbican with your bubble waffle. Completely worth and value for money, at £5.99, don’t we all deserve a treat every now and then.

Visit Bubbles on Facebook for mouthwatering photos…
