Simply the best coffee and walnut cake I have had in a very long time. Moist and a huge slice. Good service and reasonable price. Wish it was my local.

Emma runs a perfect, quintessential English tea room. A delicious selection of soups, sandwiches and salads lead into fabulous, home made cakes and scones accompanied by an impressive range of loose leaf teas - many of which I hadn't come across before. Everything is served on pretty, unmatched vintage china by the young, friendly and enthusiastic staff. A real treat!

Lovely place with a gorgeous little rear garden/courtyard that's a real sun trap. The teas and foods are simple but delicious....great understated charm. Service is friendly and very helpful.... Great place and not too crowded

Popped in for tea and a sandwich. Ended up having a cake as well. Not much to say other than the staff were very welcoming and attentive. The sandwiches we had were freshly made and were very tasty, we could not fault our carrot cake or fruit scone and cream either. Our pot of tea, made with loose tea leaves,... More

We had a good first visit, had the meringues which last year had been big and very good. This year 2 small, not well cooked, slightly too chewy. The second popped in for morning coffee. I ordered coffee with cream. Poured coffee and added cream to see that had been given double cream which curdled on impact. Waitress removed cup... More

We were made to feel welcome as soon as we popped our head around the door! Spent a couple of minutes discussing (with the very friendly member of staff) how to pronounce scone! Fantastic pot of tea, (lots of choice) and a really great cup coffee, and (which ever way you pronounce it,) the scone (along with the cream and... More

Lovely busy little retro cafe - atmospheric and loved all the old non-matching crockery and 50s theme. Delicious pot of loose leaf tea with hot water top up offered. Very tasty scone with clotted cream and jam. Waitress very helpful and friendly. Will certainly return.

We popped in in the afternoon for a cup of tea and were delighted with the selection. The service was excellent with a good selection of cakes and scones. Would recommend this to all travellers wishing for a true English experience.

I popped in here twice last weekend, once with a group of friends, and once the following day with just my partner. Both times we were served quickly and had a lovely experience. The only thing I found was that both times we were asked whether we fancied something sweet, or something savoury (and the appropriate menu given according to... More

It's tiny but there's seating outside the front and back. We stopped for tea/coffee plus cake (there's a really tempting selection) while exploring Aldeburgh. There is a loo ! Service was very friendly and it's a family business, better than many chains.
