We stopped off here for lunch during a bike ride and enjoyed it very much. It was warm enough to sit outside and watch the world go by. We opted for sandwiches which were both tasty and very filling.

Great cafe for tea and cakes. Gorgeous mismatching china for the person who likes a good vintage plate or two.

I love everything about Cupcake, it's fun loving staff,... More

Great cafe with friendly staff. Fantastic variety of cakes, all freshly made and tea served in China cups. Cafe kitted out in Cath Kidson style and has a kitchen attached that does cooking classes.
