Situated in the heart of Dawlish, Le Cygne is a cosy spot, perfectly placed overlooking the bustling green where the famous Dawlish Black Swan frequents and is just a stones throw away from the seafront and train station.

As well as baked eggs and a number of variations on the old favourite, Eggs Benedict. There are also Breakfast Boards to choose from, perfect if you fancy a little bit of everything!
The lunch menu showcases Westcountry produce, the excellent cheeses, meats, bread and vegetables are showcased in the inventive salads, hearty sandwiches and toasties, charcuterie boards and fish dishes.
