David, who took our order, is himself a coeliac, so understood my needs perfectly. It was good to be spoilt with such a choice of home-made cakes & in addition some small individual wrapped cakes useful for picnics. I would certainly return for more treats on our next visit to Sidmouth.

My wife and I visited Beckett's for afternoon coffee/tea and cake. As always the staff were welcoming, the so decor warm and inviting and the beverages and cake second to none. I had a flat white while my wife had orange and lotus flower tea. We shared a piece of avocado and courgette cake that was truly outstanding and impossible to believe was gluten and dairy free, but it was much to my wife's delight, as normally she struggles to find cakes she can eat with her dietary requirements. Since our last visit and my last review, Beckett's have trained their staff in hour to make really good flat white coffee, which tells me that they respond to criticism and strive for continuous improvement. I think they have now reached the point of being truly outstanding ask around and I have no hesitation in recommending then to anyone, irrespective of their specific dietary needs. I am disabled but was easily able to drive my Sudbury scooter inside to disembark next to the settee I wanted to sit on, unusually one that faces out of the front window of the coffee shop, very comfortable and a seat that allows one to view the coming and goings of Sidmouth High Street, quite entertaining. I would give Beckett's more than 5 stars if I was able to, truly delightful.

Visited here for the first time today. Must say I regret not doing it sooner.
Tempted in by the sign with the various hot chocolates offered. It was a cold wet day.
White, strawberry, milk, and caramel hot chocolate offered. Settled for the strawberry and caramel between us. Both were exceptional although the strawberry probably shaded it.
Various other drinks offered and youngest recommends the mango juice.
Various food offered. Both hot and cold. Good range of cakes. Recommend the carrot cake and especially the waffle with chocolate brownie chunks and chocolate sauce.
Comfortable seating and good service.

We ordered cream tea with two scones. The scones didn’t taste particularly fresh or home made. The service was slow and a bit chaotic. The jam was standard shop bought quality, the only highlight was the clotted cream which was perfect and plentiful.
