Found this place tucked up the end of an alleyway but we had a fabulous cream tea for two for £8 which was excellent value for money (most other places seem to rip you off ). The scones were warm and there was enough tea...More

…even on a grey day. Selley’s is a regular haunt when we’re in Sidmouth. The daily menu offerings are always imaginative and beautifully presented. Libra Court is remarkably sheltered and this was the first time we’ve chosen to sit inside. No worries – the delicious...More

We stumbled across this by accident. A beautiful, little court yard setting towards the end of a warm April afternoon, greeted us as warmly as the owner did. One to come back to.

Went here for a quick lunch time snack. We just had soup and warm bread. It was delicious, tiny cafe with limited seating but tables also outside. My mother bought some delicious Coffee and walnut cake to take out. Great little find in Sidmout.

Small quirky café playing fairly unobtrusive jazz music. All of the meals/cakes/scones are made by the owner/chef. Not an extensive menu but nevertheless interesting and all the better for that. Check out the specials board. Quite possibly the finest food in Sidmouth.
