Popped in here with my son for a coffee and cake, it was a nice escape from the rat race. The staff were very friendly, the coffee was great and my son had a cupcake, which was amazing, well worthy of the name 'Cupcakes'

Whenever I visit a place for a cream tea I always check the scones are homemade. I fell upon cupcakes by accident whilst visiting Paignton . I must say not only were scones homemade they were fresh with loads of Jam and Cream. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend cupcake for cream tea. Also very very reasonably priced.
