This restaurant has become the best in Sidmouth.All the food and cakes are freshly made by Richard who is a accomplished chef.The cakes are not bought in unlike other establishments in town.I would particularly recommend the panini which is excellent.

We missed our usual weekly visit over the Xmas/New Year period and it was great to get back on Monday after all the guests etc had gone home. As always Richard was very welcoming and it was great to get back into our routine. After so much sweet food over the holiday I asked for poached egg on toast, which... More

During a pre-Christmas day out in Sidmouth, one of our group discovered this delightful little cafe,tucked away down an alley. He came and found the rest of us and said that this was the place for our coffee break. Super home-made cakes and delicious coffee was quickly devoured. We'll be back!

This gorgeous coffee shop is more than just a coffee shop. It sells the most amazing freshly made selection of cakes & savoury tarts....my favourite at the moment is the 'Bacon & Brie'..yum yum. Warm and friendly atmosphere and very pretty decor. Would highly recommend this place to everyone

Libra Court itself is always a pleasant hideaway, just off the main shopping area, and Selleys is a perfect place for coffee or a light bite. This time we were in for lunch. A tasty Plum Tomato soup for my wife. For me, a delicious Brie and smoked bacon Tartlet with a nicely dressed leaf salad, all washed down with... More

My friend and I popped in here for lunch just thinking we'd have a snack and coffee and were really surprised at the quality of food on offer. My crab sandwich was delicious and her goats. cheese tart the best she'd ever tasted. Can't wait to go back and sample their cakes soon. Thanks

I usually pop in here every week with my neighbour but have not been able to get there for a couple of weeks. So I went in today for my usual cappuccino and carrot cake fix. Richard was there happy and welcoming as always despite the winter chill. Snuggled up outside in our coats with the fire on above. A... More
