We both had a good breakfast but the meal was spoilt by the cold. We had to move tables to get away from an icy draft. Even the teacups and cutlery were icy cold! The young girl serving was quite rude and abrupt and shortly...after we'd finished eating she came and banged down the cleaning spray and cloth right in front of my husband without even asking if we'd finished! Not that impressed overall.More

We were on holiday and found this cafe, so we thought we would try it for breakfast. So glad we did! A small, very clean cafe with a car park just opposite. We were seated quickly, and service was very good. Although it was quite...busy, Angela made sure we were not kept waiting. The breakfast was excellent with really good locally sourced ingredients. On the last day of our holiday, they opened up early so we could have breakfast and still stick to our schedule - how's that for service!More

Fabulous full English breakfast in a range of sizes to suit all appetites. My brother in law says it's the best breakfast he has had since moving here in October 2020. We will be back. Highly recommended.

Visited this little cafe in August, as per the title it is aimed at the cheap and cheerful market there's absolutely nothing wrong with this in my opinion as you are getting what you pay for. Unlike some other reviews left we felt that all...the staff were welcoming and friendly. 3 stars as it is what it is just like a 3 star hotel.More

Visited cafe for breakfast. Wife is vegetarian so ordered a large full English large vegetarian and 2 teas. Cafe was busy however staff managed to serve us really quickly and the quality was excellent as was the value for money. I regularly eat breakfast out...when away from home and would happily say this is the best I have had. Its a pity it can't have 6 stars.More

During our stay in Babbacombe with a group of friends we popped into this delightful cafe for breakfast - it was excellent! So good we went back for breakfast on two more days and for lunch on another day. Everyone enjoyed the freshly prepared meals...and generous portions. Nothing was too much trouble for the friendly & obliging staff. The cafe was very clean & well ventilated and all tables were sanitised between customers. We would recommend Bay Tree Cafe to anyone and would certainly return if we visit the area again.More

Call them, it is a small cafe but possibly they could put a couple of tables outside too? Great cafe, such good value but I can’t remember how many seats x
