Lovely, lovely, lovely. Friendly hosts. Hot home cooked style breakfast. Excellent toast and jams. Loved the teapots, cups and saucers, excellent tea with hot water. Highly recommended. Couldn't fault the place thank you best breakfast for a long time.

Visited here with my friend as I was recommended by another friend who regularly comes here. We sat outside as we didn't book which was fine as there was a baby shower party inside and it was quite busy and crammed. We had a sparkling cream tea. The scones were beautiful (white choc Chip especially) and the bumble berry jam... More

We visited for an afternoon tea and the food was lovely. The scones were fresh and warm and sandwiches full of filling. Unfortunately I felt the service was lacking and was made to feel a bit uncomfortable on arrival and with having a small child. It's a shame as this lets the overall score down.

Visited this cafe years ago - so lovely to return and find it absolutely thriving. Friendly and helpful service. Good selection of all day breakfasts... Archangel brekkie is large, Angel is medium etc... that was the gist of it if I recall correctly. Nice quality food. Accommodating to changes to menu options. And what I really like was the fact...

This is a wonderful place for all ages and is a quaint old fashioned tea room but with a vast menu. There really is something for everyone. The food is superb and the service second to none. Well worth a visit but I advise you book as it is always popular and can be hard to get a table.

A huge menu with something for everyone. We were a table of five and ordered a full English breakfast, cheese platter, scones and sandwiches, jacket potato and something else ... Each meal was superb. Coffee lovely too. Sat outside under the heater. Would highly recommend.

We didn't book but there was space outside so we were happy to sit outside as it has been so mild. We were going to go for afternoon as we have had it before and it was lovely but we decided to go for a lunch instead. The jacket potatoes with salad were amazing. I had west country ham and... More

Lovely Afternoon Tea. Friendly and attentive staff. Very busy and definitely needed to have booked in advance. Gorgeous sandwiches, cinnamon toast cake and scones... too much food for us to eat but they offered to wrap the remains up for us which was then delivered back to us in separate paper bags - very good service and very good food!

Thank SJ_Caerleon

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.
