This is our second time here and won't be our last. It is a tiny place with very few tables but both times we managed to get squeezed in. This time I had a salad which was very good and my husband a sandwich which was also good. The cakes look excellent but unfortunately we were in a rush! It... More

I'm sitting eating some of the most delicious and tastiest cakes that I've had in a long while and I just feel that I had to share this with everyone. We all need a treat and the best ones are those we secretly give to ourself. Le Cerise is one of my secret treat to myself, it's like my spa... More

I had a cup of tea in the cafe with a sandwich to take away for lunch later. Tea was good; nice and strong which is how I like it. The sandwich was delicious; full of flavour and packed full of clearly good quality ingredients. The service was really good, with friendly and efficient staff who were helpful and chatty.... More

Go here once a week for takeaway lunch. Staff are lovely and food is made up while you wait. There is a wonderful selection of food, cakes and drinks. The strawberry tarts are the best I have ever tasted. However there can be quite a wait especially for coffee and at bust times

There are few cafés in the area and La Cerise have good business. Their food is good, but service is real let down. Considering the number of staff who are serving, and that most orders are simple, or even ready, I find it difficult to comprehend why the average wait for your food is at least five minutes! The staff... More

We have gone in la Cerise many times in the past. We knew their coffee and pastries were really good. We went there on Saturday morning and smell of fat was terrible. When we left our clothes had the smell of 'all day breakfasts' for three hours. Shame, because la Cerise was an oasis of taste.

Been meaning to come here for ages and finally made it. Nice coffee and tempting array of cakes (we shared the Baileys one .. very yummy). Will come back and try another soon.
