We had breakfast here in this stunning location for three days in succession. The toast was excellent, as was the coffee. The views are amazing, especially on a sunny day and the staff were friendly and helpful. Even better we avoided the rush and were able to park almost outside on the road for free until 10am. The gardens and... More

This is a cosy little cafe located within Connaught gardens in Sidmouth. The staff are friendly and the drinks were good. Bear in mind that you are paying a little extra for the location here as the cafe is situated at the top of Jacob's Ladder and within the gardens.

The cakes looked huge, but there was a... More

We are locals, and choose the Clock Tower for our refreshments whenever we are in town. Always good quality food, friendly service, and super location away from the busy centre.

We visited here on Friday and were very fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day. We sat outside by the archway so we could see the sea in the background. I had a cream tea and it was lovely and there was plenty of clotted cream too. You cannot visit this place without having cake, as you go in they... More

Lucky enough to choose a lovely warm sunny day so we were able to have our tea and cake outside overlooking the sea, beach and hills in the distance. Fresh made cakes with a very good selection. The tea is good quality "English Breakfast" so all in all a very pleasant experience. They also serve hot food and various sandwiches... More

We had tea/coffee and cakes and wow. The choice of cakes is good and they are delicious! Very generous portions, which if you appreciate cake, is very nice to come across in a tea room! Lovely location and carvings in the wood upstairs a nice touch to the decor. Shame we are not here longer to visit again! Worth a... More
