Most of the food available each day is made on site by our talented kitchen team, headed up by our dedicated onsite chefs.

Our chefs are responsible for designing the menu and creating everything from scratch in the modern kitchen facilities. Our coffee shop team is barista trained – no instant coffee in sight at Tickety-Boo.

We have made a steadfast commitment to local suppliers to use products that have been locally grown, raised, made or imported. So our meat comes from local farmers, our salad from a nearby smallholding, and our coffee from Coffee Factory near Axminster. Find out about our local suppliers.

Tickety-Boo is great if you’re after a quick bite to eat, but you can stay as long as you like. If you’re a homeworker and you fancy a change of scene, why not bring your laptop and make use of our charge points and free WiFi?

We also provide a takeaway service so you can enjoy our homemade food on the run. We’re open early each day for that all important wake-up coffee or tea, and you can also grab a tasty sandwich for lunch or a little treat for an afternoon pick-me-up.

We do our best to meet dietary requirements. We offer gluten free cakes and our food is all homemade, so we can easily prepare a sandwich without butter, for example. For any particular allergies or dietary requirements please do call ahead so we can cater to your needs.

Get rewarded!

Polite Reminder

As we are a food and drink establishment, we politely ask customers to only consume what you purchase from the coffee shop. Thanks so much for your support.


Our regular menu includes breakfast, light bites and children’s meals. We also offer weekly specials, created by our Chef.

Among the choice of mouth-watering temptations available from the counter, you’ll find:

Sausage rolls and pasties
Homemade cookies, cakes and sweet treats
Plain, fruit and savoury sconese.


Our coffee supplier is Coffee Factory in Axminster. They use 100% Arabica beans, roasting them freshly each week in small batches.

Coffee Factory buy their coffee directly from the best farmers across the world, working closely with like minded importers sourcing great beans.

We promise you will taste the difference, we certainly can!


Our ice cream is made in Cornwall by the team at the award winning Kelly’s Ice Cream.

Made with clotted cream and whole milk, fresh from the cows that graze on Cornwall’s lush green grass, Kelly’s Ice Cream has a distinctive creamy flavour and velvety smoothness that you won’t find in any other ice cream.

See the flavours on offer at the dedicated ice cream counter – they’re all yummy.


We have a small kitchen onsite where all our food is freshly prepared. We are proud to have a five rating for our food hygiene.
