Visited after 2 years - still great!!

My partner and I came here two years ago for coffee and cake/scone. We returned today and had coffee and cake and it continues to exceed our expectations. Very nice coffee and a wide range of fentimans drinks. Cake was lush!

Called in to buy a take away sandwich. Only 3 fillings offered...cheese, tuna and egg! Very thin sliced bread with cheese and pickle filling cost £4.50! The sandwich was wet and the filling slid out of the terrible quality bread when I tried to eat it. Assistant was completely disinterested. There was a meal deal with a sandwich, mini Pringles...

Called in as we seen the afternoon tea in the window. A lady was straight over to take our order and we did not have too much of a wait. Don't get me wrong the food was nice but was not anything special. It was a very small place, a squeeze to get to your seat, but that was ok.... More

Popped in here for a hot chocolate. Staff were friendly and the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows was delicious!! Would definitely visit again.

Very compact and bijou café, (no good if you have a pushchair). Cakes I thought were pricey for what they were, but the Bakewell was very good. Hot chocolate and mocha were fairly standard. Not a very good rating and not an average rating but just falls in the good category because of the cake.

This cafe used to have a great reputation, but my wife was asked to leave 'because they needed the table', even before having finished her (second) drink. Tables were still free at that point. This must rate highly for cafe 'Hara-kiri'. Staff training needed.

We popped in here for a quick drink and a piece of cake. Appearances are definitely deceiving, although it looks a lovely quaint little tea shop. We found the staff rude and very unhelpful. There are many a sign dotted around asking you to 'PLEASE DO NOT'....move tables, touch the window, place the towels in the bin, allow dogs on... More

We called into Cafe Latte to get warm after a cruise on the Lake. It is very compact inside with only a handful of tables which are very close together. There was a good selection of cakes to choose from all of which were homemade. The lemon and ginger cake was tasty as was the raspberry and white chocolate cake.... More
