Ever since the day it opened, Fancy's Bakery has been one of my favourite spots to sample delicious cakes baked on site washed down with a nice pot of tea. The ladies who run the place are nice and friendly and their cakes and bakes are second to none. The best cakes I have ever tasted come from this quaint... More

Love this place. Always have. Their cake is exceptional. The venue is laid back and comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful. Just been back for first time in a while with pesky new allergies and was absolutely delighted to be given a choice. This rarely happens when you have to avoid egg, dairy and soya. In fact I am...

I love this place and find myself dreaming about their brownies and ultimately end up popping in at the weekends to grab some. Lovely atmosphere inside, I've had coffee and cake there several times and utilised the free wifi to book a holiday (I found the cake helped either chill or distract my husband). Not loads of choice for savoury... More

Stopped off for tea and cake today fabulous as usual staff very friendly and I love the mismatched china cup saucers n plates. It reminds me of my great aunts kitchen chunky large table with odd chairs decorated with fresh flowers to give it a homely feel. The cake selection if different each time we visit today we had Nutella... More

Took the family here for the first time the other day after seeing so many pictures of their cakes and hearing great things. Cake not cheap but you get what you pay for. Delicious. Quirky, relaxed place. Good coffee. Was a busy Saturday and you may not always get a table. We managed to get one but would happily risk... More

Stopped in here for lunch today, great little place away from the main bustle of Bedford town centre and well worth finding. The brownies are great and all the other cakes looked just fantastic, all bakes on site in the kitchen at the rear. We also had some bagels, my cheddar cheese and onion chutney melt was lovely. Will be... More

We had hot chocolates with cakes today with a friend. We fancy the atmosphere and the very friendly staff. The hot chocolates ( with real chocolate, no chocolate powder!) was one of the best we ever had and the brownie was to die for !

They even make gluten free cakes which look & taste so delicious. They are homemade savory delights too like cheese scones & baked beans. Staff are warm & welcoming too everyone... More

My husband and I have been to Fancy a few times and have always enjoyed the atmosphere and most particularly the fig loaf - which is extremely tasty. We visited recently mid morning on and ordered two lattes and a piece of fig loaf to share - the loaf needs to be toasted and buttered, and previously we have waited,... More

All ways a delight. We are regulars and love to see what's new. Great for a morning coffee, Saturday lunch or tea and cake.
