Amazing cakes!

We went here twice whilst on holiday. Their was four of us and we all loved the cakes, they are huge too. We only had cake from here but other food looked nice also. The cakes are a must.

Lovely Cream tea's which were great value for money. Ordered and were brought two huge scones each with lashings of clotted cream and jam. Get their early as it gets busy.

Good tearoom, the tea and cakes we had were very good. Great location with Jacobs Ladder and Connaught Gardens. Staff lovely, but the inside needs tlc, (upholstered chairs are awful) . Overall very good though

Well worth the climb up Jacobs Ladder or the slope. At the entrance to Conaught Gardens and with a fabulous view along the coast this would almost be recommendation itself, but add fabulous cakes and a welcome in the conservatory for dogs and it makes for a must stop stop.

We had a Devon Cream tea but because it was 4.30 they only had 2 scones left and we wanted 3. Only two tables for wheelchair and pushchair users. The others tables cannot be accessed due to steps. Perhaps a few more tables in this area would be a good idea. The scones were delicious and the surrounding were very... More

We chose this tea rooms after reading the great reviews. Arrived at 10am for coffee and cake - huge selection, huge portions, would recommend one slice between two or bring a doggy bag to take home. The Chocolate Mud Cake is lovely, moist and sumptuous. Stayed for more coffee then an early lunch - the smoked mackerel, apple and chutney... More

Cafe in Connaught Gardens, offering excellent lunches and breakfasts. Small restaurant inside, plus lots of tables outside, ok if sunny and warm. Homemade cakes to die for. Tasty baguettes. Will return on our next visit.

Visited with a friend for a quick visit. They do the very best bacon sandwiches apparently. I went for the slimline toasted tea cake option - also good. My eye was drawn to the cake counter that looks bigger and better than ever - yum yum!
