Always like visiting for breakfast or a snack meal, but sad it is now closed. Know there is a lot of competition in Babbacombe, but this place was always superb - attentive and efficient service.

Regrettably, we are advised that Different Corners is closing. Without doubt it is the most consistent bistro in Torquay and the owner (Laurent) and chef (Scott) have made this little place THE place to eat in Babbacombe for fresh cooked food.

We recently discovered Different Corners Lounge and had a lovely lunch there. The owner is polite and friendly and the food is delicious. I had a Chicken Caesar salad that was so tasty !! Lovely coffee and a relaxed laid back atmosphere. Will be going to try the Breakfast very soon !

It's not easy to get a proper coffee in Torquay, it tends to be awfully weak, but I was really impressed with the coffee here and the service was excellent and friendly. The clientele are clearly regulars and the proprietor is charming. I didn't eat but I will go back as I was impressed.

Used to visit this restaurant regularly, 5 years ago, when I lived in Torbay. Thought it might have gone down hill, but how wrong I was! The owner was still welcoming, friendly and helpful. I had the bacon and brie baguette which was beautifully prepared and presented and great value. The coffee was wonderful and I was offered several top... More

we have been here twice to have breakfast. Service is great, coffee very good. The breakfast is excellent, no grease, nicely presented and decent sausages! This is a tiny place but spotlessly clean and nicely hidden away so you need to know about it to go there. definately worth giving the breakfast a go, may be slightly more expensive than... More

breakfast was well presented, no grease on anything. eggs cooked perfectly, no crispy bits. bacon was perfect, bread could do with being a bit more of the hand sliced variety for toast. coffee and tea excellent. tiny place but worth taking the time to go and hope you can get a table (or book). service was excellent
