We have been several times over the years, long before they were on the TV and became well known from that. The SInging Kettle is as non-corporate as you can get. All the cakes (which are its main appeal and draw) are home made even the coffee and tea are blended specifically for them. The staff especially the daughter (who's... More

Recently visited this coffee shop whilst staying in a hotel in Belgrade road. They offer a lovely cream tea (sweet and savoury). Very friendly owner and staff.

Fantastic place with fab food!! Gluten free sandwiches, chips and a huge range of cakes. I had a choice. More excitingly all cream teas are gluten free cream teas, which people don't realise until they are told. Lovely friendly staff who understand the issues being a coeliac.

Following a request through their Facebook page, there were ginger scones available during my annual visit to Torquay. They did not disappoint! As ever, the service was friendly, expected waiting time for food was made clear and the cakes and scones were delicious. Cooked food and sandwiches were all well presented, nothing fancy but just what you expect and want... More

No trip to Devon would be complete without its infamous clotted cream tea.......as my partner is gluten intolerant he never thought he would be able to sample one, until that is we came across this tea room. We did a little homework beforehand where this place was mentioned as serving gluten free scones, so we just had to give it... More

We had cream teas, and the gluten free scones were much, much better than mine!! Served warm with generous amounts of jam and cream. There wasalso a wide range of other gluten free foods, even quiche, and delicious looking cakes. Well worth a visit, coeliac or not!
