“Small cafe but excellent food; tea to die for.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

This cafe is part of the David Mellor cutlery factory and kitchen shop. The shop is expensive but has excellent items for sale including the Mellor cutlery. The cafe is alongside and only one table wide on benches. There are limited seats available but I have never seen it full on weekdaysand there's the exhibition of design to look at whilst you are waiting. The food is home made or sourced locally like the bread. I have had soup twice there - both home made and very good. Portions are excellent. They also do great salads and a small but very delicious range of cakes. If you are a real tea fan then try their pots - real leaf tea in a filtered pot which comes out superbly strong and tasty. Service is nice and quick with helpful and cheery waitresses. Try this place it's very good, especially when most people head for better known spots.
