JC's Shellfish: Eating On The Hoof
It wasn't really an "Eating on the Hoof" day today but this is where I would have snacked if it had been. Fresh local seafood at cheapish prices, eat in or take away!
Favorite Dish: With it being such miserable weather I didn't bother but a tub of local cockles, mussels or whelks (or even better the mixed seafood) would have been just the thing to nibble walking along the seafront as I worked up a thirst for the beers to follow.

Salters & Greasy Joes: Cafes in Dawlish
• Salters were always recognized as greasy Joes because the food was a bit greasy & the chips were a bit mushy. Jimmy the Greeks at the top of strand hill used to be the greatest. There was the wimpy in Brunswick place & the place on the corner round from Harrison’s used to deep fry their fish fingers & it blew me away as a kid. They were dear & not that good, stylish for 1 summer in about 1976. The Old Dawlish Brewery along the high street is good for tasty homemade full-course meals, served by friendly, chatty staff. Great for birthday parties, for any generation older than sixteen :). Also the Old Dawlish Brewery, along the High Street is good too.
Favorite Dish: The station café does nice breakfasts, Also the Stand diner along the main town front, does charming teas or coffees. Just what you require after shopping round the town, before setting off to the beach. Many coaches come to Dawlish stopping off at the cafes, it's nice to watch the world go by.
The beach cafe in dawlish has yellow blinds with outside seating facing the gardens. Tea is (0p, a big breakfast is about £4.10 to £3.45. Jacket potatoe's are £2. You can watch the trains thundering along the line while your meal is being prepared. Amusements place is next door which has many one armed bandits & Bingo.
