Brophy's in Sidmouth town

I went to Sidmouth again. A really hot spring day and at 12.30 I needed a drink and a little light bite. I ended up in Brophy's coffee shop and restaurant which is next door to the greengrocers. They make particularly good coffee and many snacks and lunches. The portions are generous and good value for money. It's very popular with the locals. It's well worth trying if you visit Sidmouth and want a friendly place to relax a while.

updated 27th Feb 2008 I regret to say this is no longer the case - it has changed hands. I haven't tried the food but the coffee is only good if you like thin watery weak coffee.

Yes, must agree, we went in there as they had Teapig t-bags, which are very nice, we ordered food, a Crab baguette w/salad and a jacket potato w/salad. The baguette was ok, the Crab was far from fresh and the salad was really limp, looked like it had been there all day and the potato was tiny, over microwaved accompanied by the same shocking salad, avoid this place at all costs, £15.60 in our case!

Hello Ian - its a shame about your meal.

I also saw a letter in the Sidmouth Herald recently where someone was refused glasses of tap water for their 3 teenage sons even though they'd spent a tidy sum on huge breakfasts for each of them. It wouldn't have surprised me at all to find out that it was in Brophy's ...

The new 'Brophy's' has upset a few of the old regulars who no longer cross the threshold. I've heard the food is pretty dire most days ... well to be honest I've not heard anyone say its a place to eat ...
