Visired on Monday 19th March.Weather was good so we sat outside and had a crab sandwich on granary bread followed by a cream tea . Food was excellent and they make a super latte also . The view from the patio outside is fantastic. We did go back a few days later for breakfast which was ok but we found the sausages not to our liking .

A lovely clean cafe at the top of the cliff railway. The cafe also had a lovely outdoor area where on a nice day you can relax with a snack or just a drink.

Although we only visited the cafe twice we found our experience very friendly, food was lovely but I have to admit, if anything was to make me go back there time and time again, it would be for their "Babbacombe Delux Ice Cream" Absolutely delicious :0)

As always, a visit here is refreshing and fun with top quality drinks and lovely cakes served by happy and attentive staff. The view over Lyme Bay is fantastic whatever time of year you visit. The cafe is not huge and fills up quickly so be warned. Good value, fresh and also serving the best ice-cream - Marshfields - try the blackcurrant - outstanding!
Easy to find and good to return to.
