Wanted to go up and down as we were short on time and didn't have time for exploring. So a quick drink here before we began our descent.

Thanks for the review .... We might be from the Victorian 'tea drinking' era but we can still make a mean cup of coffee - great to have you visit us.

Best cream tea I've ever had!! Huuuuge fresh warm scones, 4 difficult flavours! Even chocolate scones served with cream and Nutella. Delicious! And a big pot of tea each too. A good price and beautiful view.

Perfect cream tea which we shared as the scone was huge. Plenty of cream which I like and nice jam. Lovely views and a nice place to be.

Called in for a snack and was very impressed by the stunning views down towards Lynmouth. Ideal little café offering quick snacks or a more leisurely meal with both indoor and outdoor seating available.Friendly staff and a good variety of meals and snacks available.

We stopped for tea here. They were very genrous with the amount of tea. Although we didn't eat here the cakes on display looked amazing. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the views and watch the cliff railway.

Popped in on the bank holiday weekend. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Inside is a cosy and nicely decorated cafe. The location offers fantastic views down to Lynmouth below. Definitely go for a window seat if one is up for grabs. The home cooked scones...More

Description
Refreshments served with a side order of spectacular views across Lynmouth Bay. Our Grade I listed building perched high on the cliff top is perhaps the most beautiful location for a Cream Tea in the Westcountry. We also offer a range of freshly prepared sandwiches, homemade cakes, light lunches and vegetarian options to eat in or take away; and of course we do drinks and freshly ground coffee too. To find the cafe use postcode EX35 6HW.
