The Courtyard Café
The delightful coastal town of Lyme Regis is not short of an eatery or two, but one venue that’s certainly worth seeking out is Courtyard Café. Located in the centre of town in the 12th-century cobblestone courtyard of The Town Mill, this charming independent venue has set the bar high when it comes to daytime dining.
Visit in the morning for a delicious cooked breakfast to start your day off on the right foot, or pop in at lunchtime for a tasty and nutritious meal. Everything is made from scratch using top-notch local ingredients; it’s no wonder this delightful establishment has been going strong for over 30 years. Its reputation precedes it, and Courtyard Café more than lives up to the glowing reviews it receives from visitors. Special dietary requirements are catered for at this welcoming venue, so you’ll find a range of vegan and gluten-free options on the well-crafted menu, and on Sundays the team serves a superb roast. Why not treat yourself and a loved one to afternoon tea? Featuring a range of delectable homemade delights, it’s sure to impress. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a quick pick me up, pop in for a cup of smooth coffee and a homemade cake and relax in this tranquil spot. The café also boasts a charming outside area that provides a wonderful spot for an al fresco bite to eat while you soak up the sun.
As well as fantastic food and drink, the café’s eco credentials are up there with the best. The team sources food that’s organic and Fairtrade wherever possible, and 75 per cent of the waste produced at the café is recycled. The café can also be hired for private events, providing a beautiful cosy space for all kinds of occasions, including wedding receptions.
