We came across Selley's one afternoon by accident, and were very pleased we did. We sat at one of the tables in the courtyard, which has an awning the keep the sun/rain out, and had a beautiful Devon cream tea at a very reasonable price. Because is was the Sidmouth Folk Festival, we also had musical accompaniment from a lady... More

It is set in a lovely quiet little courtyard off the main street, away from the traffic and noise in Libra Court. We stayed for four days this time but twice while we we re in Sidmouth during the day we went... More

On holiday in Sidmouth found this lovely cafe tucked away in a courtyard. We had delicious sandwiches, I had the gammon & my husband had the cheese, can highly recommend either. We have another week in Sidmouth so will have to return to sample their cakes & scones which look lovely, especially the scones definatly look home made. The waitresses... More

It is tucked away in Libra Court but once found never forgotten. The food is wonderful. Carrot cake and scones are highly recommended and teamed with a cup of coffee or tea make a welcome mid morning or afternoon break from shopping etc. Everything is home made. Coronation chicken is a must. Lots of outdoor seating with a great big... More
