Its taken me over a year to come back but I was determined to pop into Selley's on my way down to South Devon just to have a lovely cake and a chit chat with the lovely owners. The place has been totally done up since last year and gave me such a refreshing feeling. It was clean, smart and... More

Walking down an alleyway, we came across this quaint little court yard, beautifully framed with foliage. Walking in through felt like we had walked in to somewhere like a secret garden. Stunning. We scuttled in with our pushchair, found a seat where we thought we weren't in the way, (didn't want to be a health and safety hazard). We went... More

We haven't been to Libra Court for a long time so we have been missing out on Shelley's Coffee Shop. We were visiting Sidmouth and wanted to try somewhere different. From past experience we knew there was a coffee shop at Libra Court but it had changed since we last visited. Shelley's is new to us and we were delighted.... More

What a refreshing change to have lovely freshly produced food. Mouthwatering salads, fantastic tart and absolutely to die for pudding. Fantastic talented chef producing really tasty food in this charming little garden cafe. Really welcoming and charming couple who run it, thoroughly enjoyable.

A lovely find, tucked away in a very quaint little courtyard with outdoor seating making for a tranquil cup of tea in a lovely walled garden. Joined onto an antiques shop run by a lovely, friendly chap!
