Providing the best coffee, hot chocolate, pasties and pies to amazing Greek platters. Eat in or take out. Clotted cream by post service. Come in and soak up the atmosphere.

We went along to the new Gin Nights on Saturday at this lovely, cosy cafe in the centre of Sidmouth. They serve their own distilled Sidmouth Gins with some unique flavour combinations. Their Sea Shore gin made with seaweed harvested from the local beach was of particular note. Crisp and refreshing with pleasant subtle undertones it was delicious served with straight tonic and a slice of lime. Next we tried the Rhubarb gin which when combined with a ginger infused tonic it was sharp, bold and left me wanting another glass.
This cafe is a family run affair utilising all local produce and also sells many unusual and quirky preserves and products. The rhubarb mead was also a little gem. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and took the time to chat about the gins and their products.
This cafe is well worth going to
when visiting Sidmouth. I will be returning.

New to us to eat and drink-in, but The Dairy Shop has been in Sidmouth under different owners as long as I can remember. This visit we were made very welcome by friendly, seemingly family staff. Well behaved dogs welcome which is nice. Coffee and light bites were very good and service well worthy of a return visit in itself. Opposite the Parish Church in the centre of town would be happy to recomned.

We had a wonderful lunch here. Cheese scone with cheddar and chutney followed by a delicious lemon and white chocolate muffin. Washed down with a cup of tea and I had one of the best HOT chocolates ever with grated chocolate on the top and a marshmallow on the side. An unexpected treat as we were in Sidmouth unexpectedly. The staff were really friendly and even offere us a chance to taste their Rhubard Gin with Ginger Ale! Amazing. I wish them all the best in their new venture they deserve to do well so please support them as I am sure you won't be disappointed.
