I visited for breakfast for my sister's birthday. Despite being listed and known as a tea-room, they serve the best breakfasts at very reasonable prices. Great variety of options and welcoming and patient staff. Definitely on my favourites list for breakfast now! Would definitely recommend.

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.

Not sure. I would think so. Perhaps phone them if you need to clarify. The teas are really scrumptious. Enjoy.

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.
