“Superlative patisserie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2010

So far we have the chocolate slice with fruit - delicious and not too rich, the various tarts - strawberry and mixed fruit - all are superb with wonderful pastry
They also do food until 2.30pm but not sampled yet

Cakes are made on the premises

It's hard to find good coffee in Torquay, but this place provides it, as well as a good range of cakes, and light lunches including good salads and quiches.
