This is a great cafe with lovely views over Babbacombe, good for a coffee or lunch. Nice kids menu and very child friendly.

Recently enjoyed a very pleasant visit with my wife and son.
Food was good, lovely views and friendly staff.
My only criticism would be the food was a little overpriced, but overall very good.

This is a lovely cafe that I have visited many times, both in the summer and the winter. Unlike other local cafés it has a modern decor and menu. There are excellent views both inside the cafe and at the outdoor seating area. The menu has a good selection of food, with good vegetarian options. There are also freshly baked cakes, including gluten free. The service is fast, the portion sizes are good and the atmosphere is spacious and nice. Highly recommended.

first visit to this café, meal was good. The service was good, even though it was out of season, it was worth the visit. There is a varied menu and varius cakes to choose from.

Location, location, but also quality of food. At the head of the Cliff Railway the Café enjoys superb views - enough to command a visit. If you are also after a Panini, jacket potato, baguette, home-made soup or the like you'll get one carefully prepared and presented. "It may never be popular because it's so crowded". We visited off peak, time and season, and it was still very busy. I guess the locals have sussed it out. You can even park right outside if you're lucky!
