Vegetarian or vegan options
Ashburton is a delightful town on the southern slopes of Dartmoor in the heart of the South Devon countryside; its high street could give Totnes a run for its money with a great range of butchers, bakers and artisan producers.
Rafikis is awash with colour, bright and vibrant on the inside and out and the food is as colourful as the décor. All dishes are vegetarian and will leave any carnivore doubting their dietary regime; the Vietnamese Bahn mi (a stuffed spicy baguette) is a particular house favourite. There are specialities you’ll struggle to find elsewhere: Canadian pancakes with coconut blossom syrup or the kimchi potato cakes organic eggs and spicy ragu; bold and original food, done to perfection.
For sweeter cravings the counter is awash with daily baked goods, like salted caramel brownies, fresh scones, or a slice of chocolate, banana and walnut cake.
Parking for the town is just yards away, very reasonably priced and a testament the town’s dedication to keep things local.
