The cakes were brilliant, loads of choice - we ordered three to share and they all tasted great. The staff were fab too - they were really friendly and happy to answer our questions! Would definitely recommend a visit if you’re in the area.

No need for that, however there are only a few chairs/tables available. Try getting the table by window:)
