Someday Something

About us

Jamey D’Amato travelled more than 3000 miles in her journey to Someday Something.

As the name suggests, making a business out of baking had always been in the back of Jamey’s mind but it wasn’t until she travelled from her native Vermont to start a family in sunny Devon that the pieces of her plan fell together.

Taking on this tiny but fearsomely popular cafe in the heart of Sidmouth allowed Jamey to perfect her scone making technique, and led to a reputation for the best cream teas in town.

Who we are

Today, the cafe is run by Jamey and her second-in-command, Lois – and this double act has created a space full of warmth, character, welcome, and always, great American service.

Local customers know they’ll be greeted like long-lost friends, and new visitors never fail to feel right at home.

In fact, even the staff workwear has been so often admired and coveted that there’s now a range of merchandise.

What we do (best)

The cafe offers light lunches, hot drinks, cakes and of course, the famous cream teas.   Someday Something is also licensed, meaning lunch can be brightened up with a glass of wine or afternoon tea with some bubbles.


Everything is made from scratch – most on the premises itself – and certainly we never fail to ensure our scones are baked fresh every morning, often before sunrise.  Local businesses provide the essentials, so you can find locally roasted coffee beans from The Coffee Factory and Hogsbottom jam and chutney to name just a few.


And despite gaining an excellent reputation for Devon’s legendary cream teas, a touch of Jamey’s roots give the menu a little more variety.  The warming Hot Spiced Apple is a nod to a New England favourite, Vermont maple syrup is added to the porridge and even the cinnamon dusted on the chai lattes is shipped directly from America.
