I went intentionally to look into getting a wedding cake from the shop. So i thought try before we buy & took my friend for a treat. I am glad we did as the cakes were quite dry. As if they had been sitting out for a while. The tea came in a big old teapot which was nice. They... More

I supported this establishment when it was just a small corner space in a busy market. So when I saw that they had their own cafe, I instantly went in. The woman at the till made it, extremely, obvious that she didn't want to serve me, and was late bringing the coffee over. But what hurt the most was as... More

I took a friend and her father for tea in once upon a cup cake, plenty of choices with the cup cakes, tea included a cup cake, 3 types of tray cake and a macaroon served with a pot of tea in beautful bone china. Lovely atmosphere and very helpful staff

I went here as I'd bought a living social deal - and I'm so glad I did! Me and my friend had a collection of cupcakes, macaroons and biscuits with tea. Each cake was absolutely stunning and I have to say the prices are VERY reasonable! It's got such a cute interior and a very vintage/Cath Kidston sort of feel.... More

Called into the shop for a cupper and a sit down, lovely friendly place to visit to have a stunning cup cake to eat, the cakes are to die for, also she offers quite a... More

As a massive cup cake fan I couldn't wait to try one! It was only a take away however I was not disappointed! I had a vanilla cupcake and my partner had the coffee one. They were fresh and moist and delicious! Excellent! Well done!

The whole concept of this little tearoom is so on trend and I was excited about paying it a visit. Whilst the scones, soft drink and coffees were ordered were good, the tea room is tiny. It's not buggy / wheelchair friendly at all. The upstairs section was closed off and the few tables downstairs are very crammed. My young... More
