Apart from the quirky, attracgive tearooms, the seating outside is in one of the most attractive sections of the Connaught Gardens, filled with colourful flowers. Coffees, teas, ice creams, and an amazing selection of cakes, served in very benerous slices: this is definitely a place to return to, for all the family.

We visited Sidmouth twice and the first time in the beautiful stunning Award winning gardens stopped here for a takeaway sandwich which we found delicious. The sandwiches were made with lovely thick fresh bread and filled with chicken and salad and a choice from several chutneys which were home made. We returned towards the end of our holiday to experience... More

Just back from another lovely trip to Sidmouth which would not be complete without having one of the Clock Towers crispy bacon sandwiches for breakfast, followed later in the day for delicious homemade scones with clotted cream, jam and pot of tea. The difficulty is choosing scones or one of their wonderful pieces of cake. Just be aware the slices... More

A very popular restaurant,particularly on a fine day.There is a small indoor seating area (quite cramped) & a number of outdoor tables.Food orders are placed at the counter & are brought to your table.Portions are plentiful & appetising.

The location is amazing, so beautiful. We went for lunch, lasagne was delicious And the crab cakes were supreme. Well worth the walk to get there. Very busy so we booked a table. The staff were friendly and we sat upstairs With the fantastic view of the sea.

What. a setting and what cakes. If you are looking to spoil yourself and have some well earned over indulgence then here is your chance. Wonderful cakes and general snack foods. Great breakfasts too. If you go to Sidmouth you must visit here. Probably best tongue up Jacobs Ladders first to make space for the great cake

This tea room must have the best quality cakes in Sidmouth - all home-made and swerved in huge portions. The location is amazing too - within the delightful Connaught Gardens - and they have a lovely view over Jacob's Ladder beach. Make sure you get to come here!

Great location - but be sure to take someone with you to share the enormous slices of cake and watch out for the seagulls!

Called here for coffee. Excellent location, good quality coffee and the display of cakes is outstanding. Do breakfasts and lunches too. And the gardens are worth a visit.

Lovely cream teas for a very reasonable price, £5.95 - I would argue you could charge a little more, for a double cream tea. Staff were happy to exchange teas and coffees for soft drinks included in the price. You certainly won't need a sandwich as they are huge. Make sure to have a stroll down into the town from... More
