Came here for lunch after a day trip to Shrewsbury. Had a nice toastie with a brew and then a yummy homemade Oreo cupcake. The place was a bit dead for a Saturday afternoon, with only two more people in, and just one young waitress on her own that stayed behind the bar most of the time. If the place... More

It was our first visit to Empire Cupcakery, after seeing a few times in passing and reading about it. We stopped in for a toasted teacake with a tea and coffee. Coffee and tea were piping hot and the teacakes were hot, not overdone and came with butter and jam. Being able to have one of the speciality teas would... More

Popped in for lunch with one of my children. Received a very friendly welcome. My son had a sweet chilli chicken panini and a Snickers cupcake, both of which he enjoyed. Relaxing environment. Reasonably priced.

Took the children here and they loved it, even got a smile from the teenager as the cookie monster cupcake became a firm favourite. Beautiful little cafe and takeaway cakery, a must make pilgrimage for coffee and cake lovers.

Popped into this cup cake shop and I have to say the cup cakes on offer looked so tasty. I had a cup cake and a hot chocolate and it was so reasonable priced as opposed to the major chains around town ( mentioning no names). The venue was lovely and decorated well, the sofa I sat on was quirky... More
