Huge selection of bread, buns and cakes! Many old school delights and childhood favourites. I liked some and others were not to my taste but there’s plenty to choose from so you’ll definitely find something you like!

Sometimes you just want a custard tart (egg tart) or an Emerorer's puff (puff pastry filled with creme) and this is the place to get them. There's always a queue outside for the puffs and the egg tarts fly off the shelf but when you...More
