Visited this cafe in search of a light lunch and wasn't disappointed. We really enjoyed the authentic Spanish tortilla & tartlet which were both lovely! Friendly service and would recommend!

A friendly and pleasingly busy little deli/cafe. The food looked delicious but I only had a pot of tea. The gentleman behind the counter brought me a top up of hot water without me even having to ask. Good place to buy foodie gifts too.

Really friendly place. They guy running it is very knowledgeable and keen to share his expertise. Cakes gorgeous, homemade and generous in portion. Does what it says on the tin, but very well indeed.

Popped into Chai for the first time this year. The welcome was great as was the selection of home made cakes on display. Would recommend any of the cakes on display. My favourite was the fig based one. Excellent well worth a visit.

Great array of speciality teas and coffee and stunning light meals and home made cakes. Tea served in proper China cups and both food and welcome great.

A small little cafe serving the most mouthwatering cakes, the best selection of THE best cakes all made on site. (They also serve delicious savoury food too, but I have a sweet tooth!) Would definitely recommend the monthly dessert nights, booking is a must. Good...More
