I've heard a lot about Angels tea room whilst living in the bay. It did not disappoint. The "Angelic high tea" we ordered was a feast for two, consisting of a generous portion of sandwiches, cinnamon toast, scones and tea. I initially raised an eyebrow...More

Best place and best value for cream or afternoon teas in Babbacombe. Different types of jams, different teas, attention to detail, very welcoming. Excellent!

Victorian Tearooms on Babbacombe Downs , just the place for a Devon cream tea. We ate outside in the courtyard on a sunny afternoon and although a little crowded it was comfortable. Choice of scones amazing but plain or fruit the only ones to choose...More

Beautiful home cooked cakes and scones. Amazing selection and availability for vegans. Highly recommended but booking is essential as small tea room and very popular!! ☕️🍰👍🏻

Our table was booked for 2.30.p.m. A full restaurant of people were already munching their way through mountains of sandwiches, scones, cakes and pots of tea. This is not a large venue and in consequence, its popularity means that you are cheek by jowl with...More

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.

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.
