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.
