I visit Angels a few times a year for a treat. The sandwich, cinnamon toast, cake and scone are an absolute must for a first time visitor. The soup is delicious as well as the breakfasts.

A small but perfectly formed tea room located right on the seafront. Proper tea leaves served in cute mismatched china teapots with beautiful tea cups and saucers ☕️ As lovely as I remember but I forgot how massive the scones are! My eyes were bigger...More

My husband was keen to sample the cream tea at Angels as it had been recommended by friends. I was less keen, in fact I wanted to leave because I felt most unwelcome. When we arrived there were several tables without reserved signs on them...More

All so well presented, large tasty mixed scones with the option to have 'special'. When the scones are still warm what could be better?

yes, but is difficult in the summer time, it is possible to park in the " Walls Hill Down " car park next to the "Old Coach House " pub, you will have to pay, but worth the walk if you have time.

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.
