This store has the widest selection of British food and paraphernalia I've seen in America - and the wife and I check out every British store we can. The selection is almost overwhelming, and yet it's somewhat lacking. The store was out of several items they advertise as carrying on their website. The proprietor was not particularly friendly when people... More

Small Place with a good collection of the selected/imported confectionery and other English stuff. Good place to visit if you are looking for gifts or souvenir.

They had tons of stuff, from any kind of food you could think of, candy, teas (obviously), teapots souvenir type stuff, some Royal stuff, books, drinks, toys, mugs, and Doctor Who merchandise. The prices were rather high on a lot of their items. But if you want something particular... More

We thought this was a great little store for Canadians too!! Wow there is food here that you can't find in the local stores. The owner was very helpful and even my 14 yr old daughter wants to go back to this store. I bought an electric tea kettle here for a very decent price. Love it!
