The choice was just amazing, from walking the coastal route for hours we stumbled upon this little gem, ordered jacket potatoes with beans and cheese, came with full salad - beautifully presented, tastefully eaten. considering the cafe was extremely busy, staff were friendly and food arrived quick'ish. Prices were set high for the food but you get what you pay for.

We stopped in for a quick drink after a walk along the seafront and I couldnt resist a cream tea. The staff were so friendly and welcoming and we sat inside by the window with a great view of the cliff railway. The cream tea was delicious the homemade scone was lovely and my boyfriend had a strawberry ice cream milkshake which he really enjoyed, Would definately recommend this place as the food was great as was the view and the very friendly staff!

A good food selection of tasty food including daily hot specials (on the blackboard) and snacks such as baguettes. Delicious home made cakes and pastries - don't miss the cherry scones! Snuggle inside the cosy café if the wind is a bit chilly or relax on the sun terrace with views over Torbay. This café is wonderfully situated high on the cliffs at Babbacombe next to the entrance to the cliff lift which will take you down to the beach and back.
