Great service, even better coffee, sandwiches to die for and old Skool reggae in the background 😄😄 We had a Brie and Cranberry sandwich and a Coronation Chicken sandwich which were great... read more

We visited Selley's Coffee Shop today and had the most amazing crab sandwich ever. It was rreshly caught today and you could tell as it was beautiful. We sat out in the courtyard with the sun beating down and you could not ask for anything better. The staff are very friendly, service is great and the food amazing what more... More

We have been visiting Sidmouth for years but have only just discovered Selleys tea rooms. We have been missing out on heavenly cream teas, excellent home made cakes and really good value. We will now be making up for lost time - Selley's is a real find.

A lovely little cafe/shop. Seating inside, and outside in a sheltered courtyard. Very pretty setting, ideal for lunch. Food is great, very fresh food, generous portions and not expensive.

We visited this charming cafe twice during our stay in Sidmouth. Despite the rainy weather we were able to sit outside under the awning in the courtyard. We first called in just for coffee, but were tempted by the cakes, which are all made by the owner of the cafe. I keep reminiscing about their raspberry and almond cake, served... More

Lovely warm welcome. Simple but delicious menu with specials board. I had a very yummy bacon and tomato tart with a delicious salad, my friends having jacket potato and soup. All delicious, very well presented and served with a smile. My second visit, lovely hidden location

Tucked away behind the main street, Libra Court is the perfect place to relax from the bustle of the outside world. Selley's, a 'small but perfectly formed' cafe nestles in one corner. In fine weather a table outside in the sunny courtyard is perfect, with the cheeky sparrows to keep you amused. Inside, the cafe is tastefully decorated in a... More

We are regular visitors to Sidmouth but hadn't found this fantastic little coffee shop before. The proprietor makes all the cakes on site daily. The carrot cake was the best I have ever tasted. Devonshire apple cake with rum and raisin. Absolutely superb. Just a perfect place to relax. Quirky decor the chandelier is wonderful. Well worth a visit.

Not visited Selley's for several years but when in Sidmouth, it is a must for lunch. Service is not quick but it is really worth waiting for.Some of their soups and salads are excellent. I ordered two things for lunch (Soup and Jacket Potato), but found I had ordered too much. It is pretty tricky to find, but well worth... More
