Angels was recommended, and it certainly came up to expectations. Great coffee, and scones and tea cakes that help pile on the pounds. Well worth a visit.

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.
