We called in late one afternoon for lunch. We were made very welcome and told that our dog could come inside. We had a very tasty soup served with a warm cheese scone followed by a wonderful piece of Devon Apple pie with a twist. Definately one to go back to.

Visiting Sidmouth for the day and spotting a blackboard menu offering Tarte Tatin, on the pavement outside a little courtyard, I popped in to have a closer look. The courtyard is a collection of little boutiques selling interesting gifts. At the far end is Shelley's; a cosy, diminutive cafe/restaurant, crammed with interesting objects and pictures and decorated in smiley colours.... More

What a little find! Situated in a lovely quaint little court yard, Selly's is nicely located away from the hustle and bustle enabling you to relax and take some time out. My husband tried the crab sandwich, of which he is usually very critical, he was extremely impressed and it didn't stay long on the plate! The brownies were to... More

Selley's coffee shop is a peaceful haven away from the hustle and bustle but just a short walk from the main streets of Sidmouth. It is in a lovely little courtyard with interesting shops to browse in when you have had your refreshment. The cafe is very pretty - you can eat outside or inside - and I can recommend... More

Set in an enchanting little courtyard, the little coffee shop was a bonus find to our day shopping in Sidmouth. The staff were incredibly friendly and polite and the service was excellent. I ordered a jacket potato which was very nice with a large side salad and tasty herb dressing. My friend had a brie panini (special order) that was... More

If you want quaint and real - you have come to the right place. The food is made whilst you sit and wait - so be prepared to enjoy the tranquil ambience whilst Richard makes the very best home made food in Devon. Julia - his wife has created a lovely original environment with a cultural flash back to their... More
