Stopped in for a coffee and a treat. The selection of cakes was very good and the taste even better! Huge serving size and great value for money. The setting is gorgeous with a lovely lawn and views over the escarpment. Well worth a lazy Sunday brunch or morning tea.

We unfortunately went to the Cottage last Sunday in a Gale! It is not the place to go if it is windy. The ladies loved the chocolate too much and we couldn't ask them to leave as it was very windy. So there were no complaints from the ladies until we had to leave (had too) and many a chocolate... More

We stopped in with another couple of a long weekend. We had booked a table and we were outside on the lawn. It was perfect blue sky weather and warm. Perfect for sitting outside. What a great find this place is. It is a cafe but it is part of a group of shops that circle a large lawn space.... More

Not just a chocolate shop but also does meals and cakes. Hot chocolate was lovely. This is part of a little complex of shops that face onto a private green, which is great for families. We found it a little pricey, but is great for a treat.

On our way home from a fabulous week in Ravensbourne, we had to stop at this café only because of the name. Once we entered the front door, thank goodness we did! A great coffee, fabulous raspberry/choc trifle, stunning views, and shopping all at one stop - what more could a girl ask for!

Coffee and cake is something I really enjoy doing, They do both here very well. What makes it worth a visit is the atmosphere. We sat out on the grass and enjoyed our coffee and cake. Be warned though we turned up originally for breakfast and decided that we couldn't that long for something to eat so we went elsewhere.... More

A beautiful view outside in the yard. A great location for a family gathering or a catch up with friends for a coffee and a sweet snack. Nice fudge and a cute array of chocolates to tempt the sweet tooth!!!

They won't take reservations so it's luck if you can even get a table as it's always busy. Not worth the risk being so far out of town. Shame because the food is pretty good and relaxing atmosphere
