Called in here for a late breakfast and coffee. The breakfast was huge!! we didn't need to eat again until evening, it was freshly cooked with good quality bacon and sausages plus everything else. The coffee was also very good.

If you only have one ice cream during a trip to Sidmouth - this is the place to go. It was recommended to me by the proprietor of our holiday accomodation I had a sugar waffle cone with malteser and clotted cream ice cream. Delicious - Thank you.

Directly on the seafront of lovely Sidmouth, this is an absolute must to visit. Whether you are dropping in for coffee or something to eat - you'll love this place. Friendly staff and great service at a reasonable price, whilst taking in the view of the sea.

Had an excellent crab sandwich in this sea front cafe. The cafe was very busy so there was quite a wait for our food but who cares if you are sitting in the sun.

Sidmouth lies on the Jurassic Coast, and its Millennium Walkway passes beneath vivid red Triassic sandstone cliffs scoured and sculpted into fantastic shapes by the passage of ancient rivers. A half day outing turned out to be a nice event. First visit the quaint town centre with quirky shops - you will not be able to resist buying a souvenir... More
