With picnics back on from Monday – albeit with just one person from another household – readers reveal their favourite local spots for takeaway coffee, sandwiches and more exotic fare
A little hut/cafe appears on the beach in March each year in Woolacombe, north Devon (it’s starting just before Easter this year). Away from the bustle of the main tourist beach, the cafe is on a smaller, calmer Barricane beach, and in the evening it serves Sri Lankan curry – which is hard to come by in Devon. There’s something therapeutic about eating Sri Lankan cuisine, listening to the sound of the waves, seeing the sun go down and watching the impressive swimmers. Curry evenings are determined by the weather and announced on Instagram: @barricanecafe. Bring towels or folding chairs to sit on. Cafe 10am-5pm, curries 5pm-7pm, although curries can sell out.
