Really are the best scones. Very welcoming even though we arrived just before closing we were served a delicious Cream Tea at a very good price.

We stopped off at Selley's for a break after a long walk along the coast. Tucked away in a little courtyard it is easy to overlook but definitely worth seeking out. A wide and varied menu of freshly cooked food is on offer and we shared a cream tea. The scones were the best I have ever tasted (sorry Mum)... More

Very disappointed by the rude/dismissive service by the owner's wife. My mother was also disappointed by the crab sandwiches - way too much/thick bread and very little filling. Not cheap either. The mozarella panini was good. But because of the service (the customer is always right, after all), would not recommend or return.

My partner and I went for tea and cake here. The plates had black bits of dirt on and the cups had tea stains inside where they hadn't been cleaned properly. Then towards the end of our tea, the waitress decided to go over the top spraying the table next to us with surface cleaner which went all over my... More

Still my very favourite place to go for a coffee and meet up with friends. It is loved by locals and tourists. A quirky little café in Libra Court not far from the Esplanade. Indoor and outdoor seating. An awning to keep you dry if it is wet, or shaded if it is hot. Wall heaters to keep you warm... More

The menu doesn't really do this lovely place justice ...., it reads as simple plain dishes and they are anything but . The specials boards give a better idea of what a little gem this place is . Richard freshly prepares all food himself , so when busy ...., and this is why they are often busy ....., you have... More

Wow, the best cream teas I have ever tasted! Melt in your mouth light scones, oozing with clotted cream and jam. Just heavenly! The homemade soup is also delicious.

Found this little gem by accident. We loved the decor and the feel of the place such a sweet courtyard to sit in no wonder all the locals use it. Great Coffee.

Thank Wendy B
