A great place for so many times of the day. Highlights for me include the breakfasts and later in the day coffee and cake. The cake portions are extremely generous and tasty - the rock buns should definitely be tried. The staff are always extremely friendly. Don't leave Sidmouth without a visit!

Very popular due to an excellent reputation. Been to the cafe time and time again whenever we're in the area. The food was served hot and without delay. Amazing selection of huge cakes.

Sensibly limited menu cafe style cake and tea with range of excellent home made light meals. The fish pie was wonderful.

Very generous portions and therefore value for money. Note lunch only served to 2.30pm. Cakes massive (think about sharing!) Downside is that you have to queue to be place your order and as this place is very popular it can take quite awhile. Dog friendly, can go inside downstairs but not upstairs. Great access to the beach.

The cafe is set in beautiful gardens with an extensive outside seating area for when the weather is dry. Great service, menu and cake selection. I always look forward to visiting the cafe when I am in Sidmouth.

Used to shelter us from an incoming storm. Cosy and very warm with excellent views of the sea. Can feel a tad cramped when busy but cannot fault the location.

There are not many places you go where the cake servings are too big! Whopping slices of delicious cake served here with an enormous variety. Fantastic gardens and amazing cafe. A must visit!

We were very lucky to meet a couple as we walked over Dunscombe Cliff who told us to walk right to the far end of Sidmouth promenade and find some white steps. The small detour was well worth the effort! Loads of tempting things on the menu including interesting lunches, but I just couldn't see past the cake. And once... More

This place does the best ploughmans around. The chutney is delicious, the cheeses are to die for. Get yourself a portion of chips to go on the side, they're lush. I've never had anything that wasn't good. Great cake too
