Luvly cuppa

Stopped here for a quick spot of lunch. Had a Panini which was perfectly cooked and very tasty. Best of all though was the tea. Served in a see-through tea pot with glass cups and saucers

We stumbled upon this place whilst sheltering from a rain shower. We decided to have an early dinner (it was 3pm) and ordered the fish and chips rather than the cream tea advertised on the chalk board. As we waited patiently for our food we could see lovely cream teas and coffees being served and began to wonder if we'd... More

While on a family holiday to Devon last week, we had a day in Torquay. Having decided that when in Devon, you have to have a Devon cream tea, we came across Harbour View Cafe. I am so pleased we found this place, the views are lovely and the cream tea was amazing. It came served on a lovely china... More

Went in on the off-chance and had one of the best meals ever! Fresh salmon fillets with new potatoes. A real treat, beautifully cooked and presented so I am pleased to give this cafe/bar a five star rating.

We couldn't go to a fishing port and not try the traditional fish and chips. We found this cafe over looking the harbour so gave it a try. I have never had such lovely freshly cooked fish and chips. It was all cooked to order, the batter was light and crisp and perfectly cooked. A real must if you fancy... More

We went for coffee and a cake in the morning and then went back for our evening meal. The salmon was to die for. I would definitely recommend this place. Excellent service and a beautiful view, what more could you ask.

A lovely spot to eat lunch, excellent service and delicious food. We went twice in two days, the cream tea is lovely. I chose coffee with the cream tea and an earl grey tea, they rearranged the order so I got charged the cheapest (ie included the earl grey with cream tea). Free hot water with the tea (which is...
