Inside was full but wanted to sit outside anyway for the beautiful view, we ordered a small cream tea and cinnamon toast to share, as we waited we got a little cold but they supplied blankets which was a lovely touch, the...

Boyfriends request for his 40th surprise trip away was fish and chips and a cream tea. So I took a recommendation from a local and called to book this place (glad I booked). It's away from the little centre of babbacombe but on the 'strip' by the sea and some of the bigger traditional hotels. We parked in the road... More

We couldn't get a table inside, as they were fully booked, so we took our chance to dodge between the showers and sit underneath the veranda outside. Glad we did. Not only were there electric heaters outside to keep us warm but we... More

This was our first visit to this cafe we hadn't booked but we were shown a lovely table inside overlooking the sea. We ordered cheese on toast, chocolate brownie also tea and coffee everything was superb. The staff were friendly and welcoming the atmosphere was great. We are definitely returning again for lunch very soon.

If you go to Babbacombe then make sure you pop into Angels tearoom!! Very quaint & quirky and amazing choice of teas, cakes, breakfast on their extensive menu. Mix match of china and friendly staff makes this a perfect place to visit. You wont be disappointed.
