Description: Small quaint little family run café which also has a little bakery in the same street. One of Teignmouth's hidden secrets! Should have been called Temptation! All the cakes are homemade by Helene, who also makes celebration, diabetic & gluten free cakes to order.

“lovely cakes but service not so great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2013

the hobbit sells delicious cakes that are all home made and are a favourite for ordering birthday cakes from, however the service is indifferent at best and sometimes very rude so we tend to collect cakes and go now! good value for money though

“Such wonderful home made cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2013

Why make your own cakes when you can buy from The Hobbit , absolutely delicious and such a choice each day , not only have I enjoyed a coffee and cake there I have recently had a wonderful Birthday cake made for my husband, it was a rich sponge with a thick royal icing ,everyone remarked how lovely the cake looked and tasted ...

“Good value, indifferent service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

Lovely hot drinks and cakes at excellent prices but unfortunately we did not receive the customer service we would expect from a nearly empty café during the winter season. Next time we will just visit the Hobbit cake shop further down the road and take our cakes away.
