After reading good reviews, I booked a table for two for myself and daughter to catch up over a light lunch. We were seated at a table for 6 which had been reserved for us, even though there was a table for two free - (strange) . We waited about 10 mins for someone to take our drinks order and... More

We were a family of 10 on holiday in Devon and 8 of us had decided to meet up for cream tea around 4pm, having done different activities during the day. We had decided to meet in Cockington village for this as some of us were there visiting the craft centre, but it turns out that every little cafe and... More

Wow! First time visiting Devon, and heard Angels was a must. Taken here by one of my housemates who lives local & we weren't disappointed! Loved the scones, sandwiches & all the choices! We opted for half teas each, which were £11.50 if I'm correct, but so much food! I had to bring my slice of cake home! Oh and... More

We love angels. Every holiday we pop in for tea and cakes. Last year we felt alittle put out as we was moved from one table to another outside due to the amount of people wanting to use them. We felt like we was in the way. This year we went in on the easter saturday around 11.30am most of... More

We had afternoon tea for tea and it was beautiful! Sandwiches, cinnamon toast, fresh warm scones and a slice of cake between two. Plus loose leaf tea. £21 for two and it was so so worth the money - we couldn't even finish the cake.

My husband and I decided on a whim to try out Angels after having walked down the steep slopes and walked along the path at Baccacomb beach. I tried the half-tea which was fantastic, cinnamon toast, cake, scone and sandwiches and fruit. It was gorgeous. If you want to avoid disappointment then you should book in advance, we were lucky...

The best lunches, delicious cream teas and cakes. Total WOW! factor. A total must if visiting Babbacombe but as they are exceptionally busy it's best to book. You won't be disappointed.

My 3rd visit & the food still "wows" me. Thick cut freshly made sandwiches with generous fillings. Heavenly cinnamon toast. We had lemon drizzle cake today as well, homemade, fresh & plenty of drizzle! But the crowing glory has got to be the scones. Served warm, big on size & flavor. Gorgeously crusty on the outside & fluffy in the... More

Had afternoon tea and the traditional scones, cream and jam. Massive freshly made scones with very generous portions of cream and jam! Delicious. Angels also offer cooked food, sandwiches and many other cakes and selection of teas and coffees. Everything is served in traditional chinaware. My 9yo son enjoyed a traditionally made hot chocolate with a huge slice of chocolate... More

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.
