Devon Cafe Review: Babbini's Tearooms, Abbotskerswell


I went deliberately to this out of the way spot with my 2 friends, S and K.  We got a table in the middle of the fairly empty room.  A few minutes later the place was filled with a hiking group.  All hungry and needing sustenenance.  We ordered hot drinks and snacks.


I had a pleasant, but not outstanding cheese scone.  It was served with some chunks of cheese and a tiny bit of salad, plus butter.  The tea was lovely.


My friends had bacon sandwiches which they enjoyed.  There was a little dog who presumably lives there, greeting everyone and touring the room.We had a very nice morning stop there, but there was nothing that would make me return.  I would pop in if I was passing, but it's not so quirky or great that I would head there as a destination.


On the way back towards Newton Abbot, we met some cows in the lane that were being moved.  I suddenly realised quite how rural we were as we stopped in the car and let them go past.  It was great to see them in such a surprising fashion.
