Fabulous Cream Tea

We always visit this cafe when we go to Sidmouth as it's always excellent. The hardest thing to do is deciding which cake to have as they all look and taste fantastic and the portions are generous. This time we had cream teas, the scones are huge and the clotted cream portions are big. We sat... read more

A welcome cuppa and lovely freshly baked rock cake. A just reward from a long drive. My friend enjoyed a huge slice of cake! Lovely staff and views.

If you want a beautiful view over the beach, set in outstanding gardens this is the place to come. The choice of Ginormous cakes is plentiful and varied, often including a gluten free option & the Roulade must be 6 inches in diameter . Its a must when the family come visiting. Also caters for breakfasts & lunches too.

This place not only serves great coffee it also serves the biggest slices of cake that you have ever seen, its' famous for it! Well worth the climb up Jacobs Ladder from the beach. You can of course also get there on the footpath but it's less fun.

I have some trepidation making a review of the super place as it has been a haunt of my wife and I for many years. It is not only superbly located but the fare is wonderful too. The staff are always helpful and jolly even at busy times. A must for those visiting Sidmouth

After a chilly walk in the (lovely) Connaught Gardens my family and I were pleased to find a nice warm haven at the Clock Tower tearooms. A choice of seats - we decided to go for one giving a view of the cliffs next to Jacobs Ladder as the sea was grey. Just in for tea and cake, in my... More
