Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I highly recommend the Full English - nicely presented, beautifully cooked and very tasty. A nice fat delicious sausage, couple of rashers of good quality bacon, very tasty tomato, scrummy mushrooms, nice rich eggs, good serving of beans and a thick slice of granary toast...with a posh pat of butter. AND the coffee is delicious. Friendly staff and a sea view. What more could you ask for? Oh, and the breakfast is £2 or so cheaper than another cafe on the seafront.More

Popped in here for an early lunch on a wet and windy day. Not loads of choice for small lunches and the prices seemed a little high (holiday prices) so I had a fish finger sandwich and hoped for the best. It arrived. I take...it all back. It was gorgeous, absolutely huge and worth every penny. I eyed up some other people's meals as well and they all looked lovely. Staff were friendly, service was good, and the place filled up while we were there (always a good sign). Would definitely visit again.More

Best coffee of anywhere I've tried in Sidmouth, pleasant place to be, dog-friendly, very nice freshly prepared food. Cake selection could be a bit more interesting, but what there is is good. Highly recommended - far better than any of the chains.

Sadly on this occasion we were saddened by our experience , my partner and I had the chicken skewers , to be honest the chicken was tasty but my partners pitta bread in places was so hard you couldn't break it with your fingers ,...it said comes with salad but having worked in the industry that was more side salad size . To put it perspective the chicken on the skewers were the size of your index finger and with the fore mentioned salad cost £14.50 each . I think that was the shock I had noticed some nice strawberry cakes while waiting , but after the main I said to my partner na I've spent enough, I understand the cost of everything has gone up I get that it just didn't feel it was value for money so didn't spend more and won't be back , you could say my partner should have said something, but in her words I shouldn't need to ! . The chips were lovely they were 3.50More

This place masquerades as a beach cafe, anx by night it transforms into a superb restaurant. Excellent service, just the right level of attentiveness and good humour. Really interesting menu, the wild mushrooms were amazing, the other dishes were really enjoyable- lemon sole recommended, also...the mussels. Decent selection of wines too. Really enjoyable evening for all of 6 of us, highly recommended.More
