“Lovely little friendly cafe & teashop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012 via mobile

5 of us ate at this cafe on a weekday lunchtime. It is a little off the high street, through an arch & in a yard leading to a car park.
The small menu was full of little delights, including regional oatcakes & a fantastic ploughman's made with local cheese.
The cupcakes, which is their speciality, were lovely, as was the carrot cake.
The owner, Jess, was really friendly & welcoming to us as tourists and the other clientele were happy to chat.
We will return & recommend it to others.

“Lovely little cafe, very yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012 via mobile

My mum and I visited the cafe on a Friday lunch time. It was alittle quiet but the service was excellent. The cakes looked extremely yummy and it has a lovely feel to the place. The menu had just enough choice and the specials board looked particularly tasty.

We both ordered from the specials, both meals were lovely, home cooked and tasty. For afters the chocolate fudge cake was extremely naughty but absolutely gorgeous! Would definitely recommend this place. It is tucked alittle out the way and we only found it because it was recommended to us, definitely worth hunting this place out! A simple place with lovely food and cakes!

“Friendly and welcoming... the cafe experience as it should be”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Your first visit will not be your last... Tucked away in the heart of Leek, this is the perfect place to rest a while and relax with a coffee and cupcake (after that is, a Staffordshire Oatcake filled with cheese and bacon or any of the other light lunch offerings). The welcoming service and the owner's genuine interest in making their guests feel at home, makes a short visit that much more enjoyable and having the town centre a few minutes walk away and parking on the doorstep is a bonus.

Ideal for a quick drink or light lunch from the always changing 'specials' board, this is a real family run local business which has much to offer and a fantastic selection of cupcakes on tap. What's not to like? The Cupcake Cafe and Bakery deserves the longterm success it is going to have, based on our observation of the numbers of returning diners we have seen on each visit.
