Such a lovely welcome and food to die for! My husband and I and our huge 8 month old puppy found this place by a stroke of sheer good luck on Christmas Eve. We were made to feel so welcome by all of the staff and the cream tea and cakes were amazing that we decided to go back for lunch with our friends on Boxing Day. Once again, nothing was too much trouble for the lovely staff - not everyone welcomes a huge puppy - but we were welcomed with open arms. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was welcoming and fun and all of the lovely girls who work there were a delight. We plan to come back to Babbacome soon anyway but even if we weren't I think this place is worth the 3 hour drive just on its own. Thank you so much and we wish you all a Very Happy New Year. xx

What a find What a find! Our friends had discovered this cafe on Christmas Eve and raved about their cream tea. So we all went for a Boxing Day lunch Two of us had a huge bowl of ‘Festive Fries’. Perfectly cooked fries with chopped up pigs in blankets and cranberry sauce. Delicious. My husband had the biggest ploughman’s I have ever seen! Even he could not manage it all but, no problem, a doggy box was produced and we brought it home. The last meal was squid. Cooked to perfection and a very large potion. The staff were delightful, friendly and efficient. And happy to produce a bowl of water for our very large canine companion. Forget all the other eating places in Babbacombe, this is the one you MUST go to

Wedding Anniversary Breakfast! What a start to our Wedding Anniversary ! This little gem is set in a perfect location with a beautiful sea view . We opted to sit inside due to the fact that Storm Babet was on her way … This didn’t dampen our spirits or the spirts of the staff who were happy & smiling . The service is second to none and the premises is perfectly clean and tidy . What about the food ??? Absolutely scrumptious! Food was delicious , well presented & well worth the money !

Fantastic place We booked a table for 10 of us and they made the table big enough for us all to sit together. Their was no hassle just great staff welcoming us as we all arrived nothing was too much trouble all our breakfast arrived at the same time. When the food was out of this world so nice. We go here once a year on our way down to Torquay. We would all like to say a Big thank you to All of the staff. ( If your that way try it and see. ) 👍

Fabulous lunch in beautiful location Superb cafe on the sea front. We had a late lunch. The bay burger and ocean breakfast, both were amazing. The home made onion rings were lovely and the chips were stunning. The food is all sourced local and had a good gluten free choice too. The staff were lovely, very friendly and welcoming. Dogs are allowed and are given their own treats. Decor in cafe was beautiful with fresh roses on every table. Very worth the cost of £38 for the 2 substantial meals and 2 capacuinos.

Hidden gem with amazing food LOVE this little gem! The food is delicious and the recently changed menus offer so much choice for everyone. The maple and sesame halloumi is out of this world - the coffee is tasty and freshly made properly rather than by pushing a button on a machine and a delicious selection of cakes are available to enjoy too. Highly recommend.

Good spot for breakfast Delicious French toast with berries and yoghurt. I wish I knew what yoghurt they use as it was so good. A quick pit stop to help socialise my young dog after a walk along the coastal path. The staff were really gentle and understanding with the dog and brought her some little dog biscuits when I explained she is sometimes a bit nervous of people. Very friendly and efficient service. The view out to sea is very relaxing while you are eating.
