Best of all, it is under cover when it is raining. Worth searching out for the view alone. The coffee is well brewed and there are a range of cakes pastries and savouries.

Having walked up from the beach below, finding a cafe at the top was ideal.
A good selection of cakes, snacks and drinks. Be prepared for a long wait when they are busy!
Atmosphere not great, although if you can get a seat by the window there are some great views. It was spoilt for me by noisy inconsiderate families, but maybe in the summer when you can sit outside it is a better experience.

A cafe used all year round by locals which surely says it all. Not cheap but always well presented meals served by friendly staff. The views of the sea and the coastline are superb and the setting of Babbacombe is Torquay at its finest.
