I had a cream tea here yesterday, having had similar all over Torbay and beyond, I like to try different places to compare notes.
The scones were fresh and not too big or small and there was sufficient jam and cream.
The location is good and the café is clean and pleasant with courteous staff but the huge downside for me was the taste of the tea which was lacking. It maybe assam etc but in my case it tasted like a cup of hot water. I let it stand for a while and then stirred it before I poured and though the colour was good there was little taste. My friend had a café latte and the same applied to that - little taste and he thought it tasted watery too.
Perhaps not enough was used? I don't know but I was in the catering industry myself for over 10 years and I thought it was quite hard to serve a bad pot of tea.
Great shame as this café could be fab in a fab location and all on one level too, but they do need to look and taste their own products and make sure they are up to the required standard.
