I am actually shocked to read the terrible reviews people have left you, and I thought I would take the time to give you a review that you deserve, a fantastic one. People are moaning about it being a tired looking place with mismatching cups and saucers, this is possibly one of the best bits about it, not forgetting all... More

Great value, wonderful food and reasonably priced. A really good tea room for a family visit. Good service and very popular with the locals. We love breakfast there.

As a local to Babbacombe, I have visited Angels many times over the last 10-15 years and it was always exceptional, the scones were very large and always warm with copious amounts of clotted cream and freshly homemade jam. Angels never used to accept card payments but I never minded as the experience was always excellent and worth every penny.... More

Went one lunchtime - it was very busy and we hadn't booked. However the staff were very accommodating and quickly found us a table. We opted for the cream tea and the choice was amazing, so many different fillings for sandwiches and various types of scones. The ginger scones were particularly tasty served with 2 types of ginger jam. Service... More

As it was dog friendly we popped in for a coffee. Was asked if we had booked even though only one table was being used. We were offered the smallest tables either side of the door. The cream tea was nice but was spoilt by the staff moaning about customers.

Have been a number of times, serves always friendly, the afternoon tea stands are the best! You get scones or your choice, sandwiches, cake and the cinnamon toast is to die for! I have had the breakfast there too and that was lovely and so filing. I highly recommend Angels if your in the bay

Very quirky little tea room would recommend and definitely return. For just £20 we had an afternoon tea for two which had sandwiches, cinnamon toast and two scones. So much to choose from with different sandwich fillings and different flavours of scones. Some things you did have to pay extra for, such as toasting of a sandwich an extra pot... More
