Great lunch, topped off by excellent, local home made cakes (don't think about the calories though!) Friendly staff and a great view. A "must visit" if you are in Babbacombe.

We stayed in the apartment above the cafe, and we're welcomed by the very friendly staff, who gave us really helpful advice on what to do in the area. The food we ordered arrived promptly despite the cafe being very busy and we enjoyed it on the patio with a fantastic view.
The flat above (the cliffs) is of a very high standard and has an amazing view both day and night, especially if you are a stargazer!
All things combined to make our first visit to Babbacombe one to cherish, I wholeheartedly recommend both.

We paid a visit here after a walk along the beach, originally for drink but when we saw the amazing display of cakes we could not resist them.

They certainly tasted as good as they looked, so this is definitely on the revisit list.
