Lovely courtyard cafe Nice friendly staff Had a great piece of French almond and raspberry torte. Nice to be able to sit outside and away from the main road. Nice shops around it too.

My wife, son daughter in law and myself had a lovely lunch here, homemade soup and a generous 'lump' of fresh bread, we were so full there was no room for the scones, jam and cream. Not an easy place to find but worth the effort.

When my friend and I visited Sidmouth, we went for lunch where it needed to be accessible as my friend is disabled. We were able to park near by, and walk to the cafe which was tucked away in a little courtyard off the highstreet. it was a sunny day so we were able to sit outside under umbrellas, but... More
