One of the nicest cream teas I've had. Fresh homemade warm scones, cream and jam. Tea served in cute tea pots and plenty of it. Clovelly is very pretty and quaint. Worth a visit.

I was very glad I decided to stop off here for cream tea. I was very impressed that seating was available inside and out. The outdoor seating is great for a sunny day. I ordered two cream teas for my friend and for myself. I had the choice of fruit or plain scones and went for plain. The price came... More

it is a nice little cafe just at the bottom of the cobbled street. we had lunch here of a crab sandwich and a tuna baguette. the food was good but the fillings were a bit stingy for the price paid compared to other cafes we had been to whilst on holiday!

Had a cream tea here and it was simply fantastic. The scones were just amazing and the value of the cream tea was super. Clovelly is a beautiful village that we are lucky to have on our door step. A must see for anyone visiting the area or as a local a beautiful day out away from the towns.

Worth a stop as you walk down the steep cobbled street. Good food and coffee. If you sit outside you have a panoramic view of the bay.

Stopped off here whilst walking coastal path through the village. A beautiful spot with amazing views. The food was freshly prepared and very reasonably priced. Scones are delightful and highly recommended.

Lovely place with friendly staff and delicious cream teas which are good value for money, highly recommended I wanted to try the crab but we had arranged to eat later with friends however we decided that when in Devon it would be silly to pass up on the cream tea plus it would give us energy for the climb back...

A lovely little place selling great food. Nice staff and a great view if you are lucky enough to get a bench outside. Food was very good, as was the tart of the day!
