New owners of Sidmouth cafe are adding to menu choices

A couple from Newton Poppleford are the new owners of Selleys Café in Sidmouth’s Libra Court, writes Rufus Baker-Morris.

John and Katrina Lort took over the café last Tuesday, July 5, and said: “Things were a bit manic at first, but now it’s going fine.”

While they have kept most things the same in the café, several additions have been made to the menu.

Katrina, 48, said: “We felt that if we kept most things the same then regular customers would be happy.”

The café has been going strong for 20 years.
