Friendly and prompt service with a smile. The cakes are delicious and the cheese scones are scrummy! The staff are always quick to help and it's so lovely to see them provide assistance to older customers. It's my favourite coffee shop in Sidmouth and we always come here.

We visited Fields coffee shop today for a cup of tea and a snack. The waitress staff here are unique. They can be observed taking an order and listening to the customer with such care. They never hurry and comprehensively serve with love. They seem to know that the elderly lady they've just spent time with probably won't speak to... More

Since this store was taken over by goulds in Dorchester there have been vague efforts to rebrand and update it. But it is still the dinosaur it was before. No doubt it suits a section of the more conservative population of sidmouth. Having said that the cafe has always in the past despite the uniform pantomime provided tasty Fayre. Alas... More

As usual the staff and atmosphere here is very good. We revisited here after previously having had unusually poor meals; but very pleased to say this time all was 'tops' - My husband had lamb stew with mashed potatoes and I had a vegetable quiche with salad. All very nice. Keep up the good standards and see you again soon.

A delightful restaurant set in a classic store of period charm. Waitress service and a great selection of snacks,cakes and beverages. An ideal spot to have a break from shopping and be spoiled. Visited many times over the years and pleasing that the old standards have been maintained. Look forward to visiting Sidmouth and of course Fields again.

Have visited this coffee shop on numerous occasions over many years it has always been our first port of call when visiting Sidmouth. It hasn't changed at all the service the atmosphere the welcoming smile and the choice of food is just the same. Cakes are particularly good. Would highly recommend this cafe.

First time, but certainly the first of many!! Very friendly and informative Staff, beautifully clean, comprehensive menu and we enjoyed a superb Latte. So impressed, that although we do not reside in Sidmouth, visits are frequent, so we signed up for a rewards card, bought a number of gifts in Store, which was a really pleasant experience and got points...

I review this coffee shop with a heavy heart. This was once the coffee shop by which others were measured. Not so now unfortunately. Unlike Fields Store, which is still the best in town - the coffee shop has lost it. Since the recent takeover there are less staff in the coffee shop and the service has suffered. Only today...
