The cafe is very small however they offer a nice menu, You can find this cafe just as you go into St Mary Church on the left there are normally two tables and chairs outside on the pavement.

We came across this small, friendly cafe after a visit to the nearby Model Village in Babbacombe. Prices were really reasonable, and service was with a smile. For us, it was such a pleasure too, to find an eating place where dogs (apart from service dogs) were not welcome. Thank you.

We have been visiting this establishment now for some years and frequent it mostly every week and having been in all the restaurants in the area, we find this the best by far.

What a lovely find! Tiny, spotless little cafe, run by very delightful, friendly couple. Had an excellent full English breakfast and mug of milky coffee (two actually!). Ingredients so fresh, well cooked and presented beautifully on sparkling white plate. Other customers had variety of meals and all cooked and served freshly and quickly. Excellent choice of lunch time meals on... More

A lovely cafe, very efficiently run by a very friendly and helpful couple. Generous portions served at very reasonable prices. My wife and I visited the premises twice during a recent holiday in the area, and on both occasions were delighted with our meals and the service provided. It was also very pleasing to find good vegetarian options on the... More

This is actually in Babbacombe/St Marychurch. We popped in for drinks and snacks on Saturday afternoon - fabulous Italian hot chocolate (with hazelnut syrup) and toasted crumpets for me, and cheeseburger and tea for my husband. Ridiculously good prices for the quality you get - the above was about £6! Spotlessly clean; lovely smiley and friendly service; delicious food. Will... More

Both came with pot of tea each. Food was hot, well cooked & served with a smile-all for £9. Would definitely recommend a visit.

I've been hitting this regularly as its conveniently placed, easy paid parking across the road (or along the same road for free). They offer a no frills breakfast and a solid cup of tea. The owners are very nice and the selection (outside of breakfast) is very good - I like these 'mom and pop' style cafes and I'd hate... More
