"Proper" tea room, and dog friendly

Wet weather, cold and grim, the only possible solution was a cream tea. Fortunately the first cafe we tried was Cragg Sisters, and they welcomed dogs. Nice choice of real teas, tasty scones etc. Very friendly staff. Knocked off a point for 2 reasons; needed a lot more cream and jam with the scones... read more

Quaint little tearoom, extensive tea menu and super freshly prepared light snacks, soups and cakes. Enhanced by friendly and professional service and apprpropriately subdued vintage Café FM. Like.

The tearoom is quaint, with freshly cooked cakes and delicious home made scones. The cream was so thick that the spoon stood up in it! I didn't get to the cakes, but I did see some cooling on the table and they looked amazingly good! If you're in Aldeburgh it would be a great place to have lunch. They also... More

Popped in for a quick lunch with a friend. 2 sandwiches, 1 tea & a soft drink £16. Would have loved tea also, but no soya milk available even though it's opposite a Co-op, two staff on duty & few other customers. Shame, as this would have been worth an extra mark! Sandwiches were adequate, cake display minimal, but I... More

We love hot chocolate, but hate the drink made with powder, no matter how good the manufacturer. When we saw the sign advertising real hot chocolate, made with chocolate shavings, we were enticed inside and we weren't disappointed. This is a small, but charming café with a large range of teas and home made cakes. The carrot cake we had... More

Seems to be a common theme with Aldeburgh's cafes, overpriced and underwhelmed. Tea and scones Ok, but nothing special to warrent the price tag. Couldn't help feeling I was being a little ripped off. Also service could be a little more friendly and welcoming.
