We were walking from Babacombe to Brixham and came across this little cafe at the beginning of the pier, fantastic location and wonderful views. We had one of the best cup of tea I have had in a long time and the coffee and walnut cake and the tiffin was lovely, just what we needed to help finish the walk... More

Fancied a cup of tea and saw this had been refurbished. Was a lovely little stop with great cakes, great views and friendly staff. The food also looked really yummy!

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We both opted for Cheeseburger and Chips which was plentiful and filling. The staff were polite and the wait was minimal. The prices are reasonable compared to some other places in the vicinity.

The cafe is situated just as you go onto the pier on the righthandside. On the day we popped in they were unfortunately understaffed and there was a long wait to order / for food to arrive. The staff were clearly trying their best, which is why we were happy to wait. Food was OK. There is a £1 charge... More

Popped in for a bite of lunch. A little small but managed to fit in with a pram. Husband & I had the Cheese burger with chips, salad & coldslaw. Could have done with just a touch more crunchy side salad but the rest was absolutely LOVELY! Yummy and definitely filling. I don't eat burgers very often but this was... More

After a walk along the pier we decided to sample the coffee and the cookies. The staff were very busy and served with patience. The staff were very helpful with all customers and non customers. The cookies and coffee were great. Stop by and sample you won't be disappointed.

We popped in on the morning of leaving Paignton, for a couple of bacon rolls and a cuppa. Location is lovely, right on the entrance to the pier but it's a little noisy due to the arcade etc. Even though the food was lovely, it was a little expensive compared to portion size, ie 2 slices of thin bacon in...

Such friendly and accommodating staff. We ended up here for tea one night after trying the food at travelodge the night before and being disgusted at both service and quality. We had panini and chips. Delicious, fresh produce and freshly cooked to order. Having also experienced a disastrous breakfast at travelodge we decided to walk down to this friendly cafe... More

The service was polite and friendly, but the food was a disappointment. The veggie ploughmans came with ham (!) and the chips were cold. The tables were sticky and tacky. The views, though, are amazing!!
