Called in here for some coffee and discovered the best latte in town. The service was so good and the staff were so friendly and welcoming, to the extent that we called back several times during our week in Sidmouth. The cooked breakfast was excellent...More

I had the raspberry and white chocolate ice cream, it was clearly home made and it was the best ice cream i have ever had. If it wasn't so far away i would be there all the time!

The restaurant occupies a beautiful location on the seafront. The weather was glorious and we enjoyed our coffee sitting in the sunshine. We didn't eat as we'd had a cooked breakfast at the hotel, but the food looked amazing.

Called in for lunch on a family holiday, the food was standard cafe food. I had a jacket potato and it was alright. The hot chocolate was very well presented.

Large group of us had lunch here. Such great choices and the side salad that came with the toasted sandwich and pannini was so tasty.

We stopped here because we wanted a cream tea, and my daughter an ice cream. They didn't do cream teas until 2.00. Fair enough, however we were enticed by the different flavours of ice cream advertised. My three year old had been saving her pennies...More

Nice welcoming staff and a good menu. Generous portions whether you order a main meal or just a sandwich. The children were very impressed with their choice of fish and chips and milk shakes and my crab sandwich was well filled and delicious.
