I came here with my friends for lunch and the service was just terrible. There's no menus on the tables, it's on the wall by the till. You can't read through a menu sat down in peace! The lady behind the till was most unhelpful, my friend ordered after me and asked if it was possible for the food to... More

We called in here for a sandwich lunch simply because M & S don't have a cafe in Torquay. Their sandwiches are a bit top end with fancy prices to match so we went for a cream tea for £4.95 including the tea. The cafe overlooks the harbour and we had a table with a view. The cream tea was... More

Ideal for a light lunch. It is very clean and bright, the staff are very pleasant, and the food is well presented and tasty, and a very fair price. Also, a nice touch is, that you can help yourself to water, ice and sliced lemon. It is a popular place, but if you're fortunate enough to be able to sit... More

Once in a while visit to Hoopers restaurant enjoyed the chat, tea & cake with the flower arranging group. Beautiful flowers to take home. Phone Liz in the cafe to book for the next session.

Restaurant is on the top floor and has beautiful views across the harbour. Excellent food choice and quality. However, we visited first thing on Sunday morning, 20th November this year and they were short staffed in the cafe, just one person taking orders and manning the till, and one person in the kitchen which meant there was no-one to take...

We pop in to hoopers at least once a week for tea, cake, scone or breakfast as there are not many decent places around and the views are good, but I am fed up with ordering their cheese scones (all ways thinking they look good so may be better this week) but I have to say they are the driest...

We always go to Hoopers restaurant when we treat ourselves to a boat trip across the bay. Have never been disappointed. The full English breakfast is tasty with lots of choice and the views are wonderful. Staff are just lovely.
