Found Gail's Artisan Bread shop which offered a wide range of sandwiches, cakes and beverages and looked very inviting. Shop was a little busy at the time we visited (14:30pm) but managed to find a table indoors to sit down. The process for selecting the food... More

Really cute place and the food is terrific. Everything is very fresh. Busy but not too long to wait on a Saturday afternoon. Very friendly staff. I had the Ham and Gruyere Croissant and it was delicious.

Visited this branch and purchased (as a takeway) - a Sourdough loaf which was requested to be cut, along with an Apricot Scone and Berry Muffin.

We had very good sandwiches with excellent bread. Soup and pastries were v good as well. But the line can be long and and make sure to ask for your sandwiches to be heated if you want them warm.

Really nice place to stop for a bite to eat and a coffee (or in my case tea) everything is freshly made and tastes amazing. I'll keep coming back.

I stopped for a coffee and some cake. The lemon loaf was great and cappuccino also excellent. Lovely little cafe and I think another location in Wimbledon village.

Thank urbannomad69
