Could sit all day here and drink delicious coffee, eat snacks of cakes and sandwiches, also soup, and enjoy the company of other customers as well as the new owners who are delightful people. Plus we can take our dog in, he loves it!

I did quite a long walk (for me), from Lyme up the river to Uplyme, strolled around the village then walked back into Lyme. Came down Silver Street, not expecting anywhere to be open at nearly 5:00pm on a quiet off-season Sunday and this place was - good news, as I wanted to treat myself. The owners were clearly tidying... More

Great coffee, great cake and great informative service. Will definitely be going back. Also bought some of there own roasted coffee beans. Hard to find good decaf beans anywhere but this place does.

I thought I had wrote a review before but can't see. So to be short - there is no place on Earth where you can get a better cup of coffee (or beans) than here. I haven't been there in a long time now, but each time we go to Lyme, we go here several times a day. Not sure... More

First came here when my two year old was napping - family were staying in the house across the road and when I saw the micro-roaster sign through the kitchen window I knew I had to give it a try. Great service who were more than happy to educate me in all the important coffee things (including which book to... More

This place has been an absolute favourite of ours on our infrequent visits to Lyme Regis ever since it opened 4/5 years ago. We were slightly worried on our latest visit to find that it had changed hands, but rest assured fellow coffee lovers that all is well. Two different baristas on consecutive days served up perfect flat whites. Good... More

We stopped here as they said that they roasted their own blends. We had coffee, we had cake, we had an excellent chat full of local tips. We bought the coffee. Utterly perfect. What a brilliant start to a stay in Lyme. We will be back.
