She added that the bill came to just over £20, but Travis then admitted he had no money.
The court heard he was banned from all licensed premises, including restaurants, in England and Wales under the three-year order granted in 2010
Miss Cater said Travis had gone into the Best One store in Union Street on January 12.
She added he racially abused a member of staff when she refused to serve him alcohol because he appeared drunk.
Paul Brookman, for Travis, said he was an alcoholic who had been released only weeks before from a 16-month prison sentence. He said Travis had lost his place in a hostel and had fallen in with some street drinkers.
Magistrates remanded him in custody to appear at Plymouth Crown Court top be sentenced on February 15.
