It is not actually a cafe, but a factory, where you are allowed to observe the process of making really nice and delicious desserts. Must visit.

The cakes we had were extremely delicious and the tea service was very charming. We each had coffee or tea and a mini cake, and different cake to go so we could enjoy at... More

As soon you enter this little shop, we feel the quality in the ambience, in the products and the people that enjoys working there. Everything is made on premises and if you sit at the bar, you can see the confectioneers doing their wonderful job. I recommend any cake or tarte with strawberries or chocolate or dulce de leche.

Smeterling's is mouth-watering. Great place to stop for tea and cakes! Good service, you can sit (NB: limited seating) looking at the staff preparing delicious patisserie fayre. It isn't cheap but, to be honest, you pay for quality. Delicious!

By far the best chocolate cake we had while in BA with good coffee. Quite a small place, but definitely worth a visit. Would highly recommend a visit.
