“Lovely little place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

Popped in as we had looked in trip advisor and seen that it had fab reviews. I had a cheese scone and a pot of jasmine tea just lovely. And hubby had a cream tea without the tea but with a fizzy lime drink. Yum yum will visit again.

“Super little place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

What a find! Had lunch there today and were really impressed with both the food and the courtesy afforded by the staff. We decided to have the meat platter for two and were not disappointed. We had a selection of meats, olives, sun dried tomatoes, fresh bread (still warm) and butter along with a delightful salad. We finished off with a pot of fresh tea and all well under £20,00 for the two of us. We noticed locals eating in the cafe as well as a brisk counter trade.
We will be back!!

“Will be back!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

What a charming little place!! After sitting down at our table the menus were brought to us along with a complementary jug of water, which I thought was a nice touch. As I wasn't overly hungry decided to have the soup of the day from which there was about 5 to choose from. Whilst waiting many varied things off the menu were being brought out to other diners which all looked really nice. The staff were really attentive and friendly and will most certainly be going back next time I'm in Sidmouth.

“Lovely charming coffee shop in sidmouth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

If visiting Sidmouth call in to the Dairy Shop for delightful music, delicious coffee and cakes - excellent friendly service. All in a uniquely English setting. Really like the place. Definitely has the feel good factor. Next visit definitely going to try their crepes for lunch.

“Superb Coffee and friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

We didn't eat here as we only wanted morning coffee. We come to Sidmouth frequently, but had never found this little gem, until I looked on TA for a new place to try. I am very fussy about coffee, and ws not disappointed; the coffee is wonderful. Highly recommended.
