Bringing French luxury to Ilfracombe

Situated on the corner of the Promenade opposite Capstone Hill, Stacc is one of Ilfracombe's newest businesses: a patisserie / coffee shop specialising in high quality products which are freshly baked and expertly finished.


Alex and Bronwen opened the shop in mid-December last year after a significant renovation of the shop - just in time for another lockdown. But they didn't see the timing as a disaster: "Lockdown gave us the opportunity to fine tune the business slowly and make sure we can provide the best service", explains Alex. "We've had a great response to the takeaway service from the local community who we got to know very quickly and will be taking on three new team members over the next month to keep up with demand"


"I have worked in hospitality all my life across the south west and channel islands. My main focus is driving sustainability and supporting other local businesses.


"Bronwen is our head pastry chef who has trained in patisseries all her life and worked at some of the best patisseries such as Ladurée. All our goods are made from scratch on site so you won't find them anywhere else. Bronwen can also make bespoke cake orders for anything from a simple get together to large weddings!

"Once lockdown allows, we look forward to inviting people to our outside seating area for drinks and coffee, and eventually back inside as well! When permitted we will also be serving a range of exciting cocktails, wines and local beers in the evening. we have some great ideas lined up and cannot wait to share them when we can!


"Going forward we hope to continue to grow the business by increasing our menu and opening hours. We are also currently looking at how we can improve our sustainability by going plastic free."
