I've been here a few times now, and every time it can not be faulted. I recommend the angels full afternoon tea.....choose a sandwich, cinnamon toast, chose 2 scones with cream and jam, then choose a slice of cake! Remember to book though as it us very popular here!

After wanting to go here for years, I finally did with a group of 6 girls. My first impression was that, although the look was supposed to be vintage, it looked a bit tired and unclean. We waited for quite a long time before ordering and then our food (all cherubs teas) took a while to arrive too. I would... More

Stopped in here for Cream Tea - the menu is extensive you could have a full lunch. The sandwiches were doorsteps, the cinnamon bread the same - which were not to my particular liking - however the scones, jam and cream were delicious! The view from the garden stunning. Not smoker friendly - no smoking even inthe outside space.

Mum visited with friends her review - Delicious generous portion of food, delightful waitress. Do dislike as three people being given a pot of tea for three instead of individual ones as we liked our tea at different "stages of brew". Also asked price of piece of chocolate cake to take away £3.25, ouch bit excessive, but looked nice. However,... More

Nice peaceful setting, waiter was friendly and polite and we had an afternoon tea which cost us £21- this included tea, a huge slice of cake to share, cinnamon toast, beautiful warm scones jam and cream and two sandwiches of our choice. We absolutely loved... More

Whilst having a nice afternoon stroll at babbacombe we thought we would visit angels for afternoon tea as I wanted to treat my daughter and my parents. The waiter came over to take our order (tall gentleman who was probably the oldest there so should know better) he firstly had a bit of a dig at my father for not... More

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.
