We were perfectly dry and our lunch was lovely. We had Devon Red Cider, and crab salad. It was great and... read more

Decided to stop off here because the courtyard was ideal for dogs. The menu was limited, but didn't see the specials board until we went to pay. The food was sandwiches we ordered were tasty, the only downside was how quickly our plate was taken away. We hadn't quite finished eating when someone came and cleared the plate off the... More

We had a lovely lunch here. i had a crab sandwich- lovely bread- which he kindly prepared without mayo. My husband had onion soup with garlic toast/crouton and truffle oil which he said was delicious. We were full but took the fruit scones home. Some of the best scones we've ever had- fantastically light. This is the lunch place we... More

Came across Shelley's while wandering around Sidmouth looking for somewhere to have lunch and what a find. 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 - none of this Costa pre-made stuff but all freshly made...

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
