Lovely little place!

Great selection of sandwiches (and they weren't stingey with the fillings), scones and even different jams! The cake was also delicious.

A firm family favourite in the past so was somewhat surprised with the catalogue of disasters which occurred yesterday morning after ordering 4 black coffee's with milk in a jug, a cream tea and two breakfasts. My toast was returned as it wasn't toasted, a milky coffee arrived, half a cup of coffee was served and retrieved by the waitress... More

Had only been for afternoon tea before which is always excellent but the lunch was outstanding value. My elderly mum loved it.

Definitely need to book a table as it gets very busy inside. We sat outside, had a lovely lunch - recommend the tea, sandwiches and scones for two. Great value and lovely food. Only thing I would say is the cappuccinos are poor quality and coffee isn't great so stick to the tea! But other than that, service was fantastic,... More

After a long walk along the south west coast path it was lovely to relax in the sun trap garden of Angels. We had 2 Devon cream teas totalling £8 - I went for the plain scone whereas my wife chose the traditional fruit variety. The clotted cream was luscious and plentiful. Although our cream teas were served almost immediately... More

Lovely visit recently with my best friend, we enjoyed huge sandwiches, cinnamon toast, scones & cake for a very reasonable price. Really enjoyable in a quaint setting, lots of menu choice & fantastic if you have a sweet tooth. Best to book as often very busy.

We were thinking that we could do with a Devon cream tea, so Angels looked like a good bet, and it was a great decision. The menu is extensive, and we ended up choosing the Angels tea, which is meant for two to share, and you each get to choose the type of scones, the jams, the cakes and the... More
