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

Recently visited Sidmouth for the first time as part of a day trip out when on holiday and came across this wonderful little café; tucked quietly away in a small courtyard off the main street it was a great place to stop for coffee and cake. Hubby had a slice of cinnamon cake and I opted for a scone with... More

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
