This is a beautiful place for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. The portions are hugely generous and delicious. The range of cakes is the best I have ever seen and they are nothing short of opulent. You may need to share a piece of cake as the portions are gigantic. They menu is large and varied. The setting is in... More

Sometimes when you are given a huge piece of cake you feel daunted and it is too big and you wished you had not been so greedy. Today we visited this wonderful place and had good cake and tea. The cake was the biggest piece you can imagine and it was sublime, we took most of it home with us.... More

Do venture out of Sidmouth a little further along the coast and you will come to Connaught Gardens. They are beautifully tended with lush exotic flower beds and many small gardens within gardens. From here the views of the cliffs are spectacular. The tea room is tucked away in a walled garden near the entrance to the gardens and is... More

We had the most delightful tea and cake here that just must be one of the most beautiful little sea side cafe.I echo the other fine comments that have been made. I would love to scoop up all my friends and take them to share in the little dream.

I stopped here for a coffee with my daughters on the last morning of our holiday and wished we had visited sooner. We were able to sit outside and make the most of the sunshine and the gardens. I had a mug of good coffee and my youngest daughter had an ice cream - special comment has to go to... More

Not having visited Sidmouth before we called in at one of my wife's childhood haunts and it was worthwhile I have to say! We walked around the lovely sub tropical gardens first and took in the views of the beach with the tide going out on a lovely summers day and retired to the Clock Tower for tea and cakes.... More

Every time we go to Sidmouth we go multiple times here. It never disappoints. The staff are so very polite & helpful to everyone there. The food is just stunning, a lovely selection of fresh local produce. The portions are generous to say the least. My children's eyes popped out of their heads when they saw all the amazing deserts.... More

We found this cafebar whilst strolling round the gardens above Sidmouth town. Well worth the stroll up the hill, and beautiful tranquill gardens, beautifully kept and laid out to sit in and admire the views. The cafebar is set in a high walled garden area with plenty of seating and there is even an enclosed area too if the weather... More
