We happened to stumble across this place and we’re delighted we did. It’s really cute and cosy, the staff were lovely and the food was yummy! Definitely worth popping in!

This had been recommended to us by family, and we managed to get lunch here on the last day of our break away. It was good value, plentiful and very tasty: we had salads, pasta and the scampi between us. The freshly baked bread with...some of the dishes was a nice touch. Plenty of room to sit inside and a relaxed atmosphere that put us at ease. A good place to stop and refuel.More

Steer we’ll clear this year, very poor management, food was a shambles and very low quality. Lovely staff but no support with leadership or stock management. Stay away for now...

We visited over the weekend and found the singing kettle sun a prime position for passing business. It was not busy with only four tables occupied. Card payment only. Ordered two cream teas. The tea was served promptly but had to wait 30 minutes for...the scones to arrive. Totally disappointed, two scones and tiny pots of jam/cream that wouldn’t even cover one scone, served way after the tea had cooled. Other guests around us were complaining of long waits. Hot food not available after 1.30. Won’t be returning.More

The café is currently closed, (covid) but I had such helpful communication with Lyn who organized a delivery for me of lunch and cream tea to a local business which was excellent, it really helped me out and I would recommend and use again, thank...you so much and please support your local businesses.More

Best scones and coffee in Torquay! Genuinely excellent service We arrived late in the day but we didn't feel rushed in anyway shape or form. Cheap but only in price not in quality! And best of all. Covid rules were not shoved down our throat!...We had a lovely chat with the owner who made us feel nothing but welcome in her establishment. **Disclaimer** (R&R were obviously in place)More

Superb little place that we used on each of our 3 days for breakfast as we were staying at the nearby Premier Inn. Excellent value for money on a varied menu. Food was presented well and piping hot. What a refreshing change to have a...pot of tea with proper tea leaves in and not your average large teabag. Both ladies who served us were excellent and made us feel very welcome. Would definitely recommend and if we visit Torquay again we’ll be back.More

We stayed in Torquay for 4 days and had a gluten free cream tea every day. I am a hard woman to please with food but it was amazing! Lovely staff, easy location from the beach, a must try!
