This is right on the downs and has spectacular views and you can sit inside or out. Not cheap but reasonable and great place to go for a coffee or cream tea. Very popular in the summer season and does well in the other months...More

This is no mild boast - I have sampled & eaten rather a few over the last three weeks FAB my visitors also voted it Tops.

Not quite, but definitely the largest I've ever had. A wide range of flavoured scones and delicious jams, generous portions of clotted cream too, and amazing tea. I can't recommend the ginger scones with pear and ginger jam highly enough.

yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

Not sure. I would think so. Perhaps phone them if you need to clarify. The teas are really scrumptious. Enjoy.

A little taste of heaven in a beautiful part of Devon! Angels is a perfect place for Devonshire Cream Tea looking onto the seafront in Babbacombe. Very popular with the locals and recommended to holiday makers.
