I feel the prices are too high on some items. I asked how much a mince pie was - without cream - and was told £3. £3 for a solitary mince pie is far too much. It's not as though I couldn't afford it, I...More

Read the other 1* reviews. Don't waste your time here. Angels has a devoted clan of fans, and for them it can do no wrong. For the rest of us, this is an average tea shop with poor service. We visited on a quiet lunchtime...More

I visit Angels a few times a year for a treat. The sandwich, cinnamon toast, cake and scone are an absolute must for a first time visitor. The soup is delicious as well as the breakfasts.

A small but perfectly formed tea room located right on the seafront. Proper tea leaves served in cute mismatched china teapots with beautiful tea cups and saucers ☕️ As lovely as I remember but I forgot how massive the scones are! My eyes were bigger...More

yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

A little taste of heaven in a beautiful part of Devon! Angels is a perfect place for Devonshire Cream Tea looking onto the seafront in Babbacombe. Very popular with the locals and recommended to holiday makers.
