Called in while on a cycle ride. Really lovely place - lots of interesting things in the shop, good coffee and cake. Sat outside in the sun - just perfect. The menu is limited (just cake!) but the cakes themselves are definitely tasty. Worth mentioning the staff who were super friendly and helpful. Overall a very pleasant experience - so... More

Nice location. Very friendly staff. Lovely lemon drizzle cake. Dogs enjoyed the sun. Good amount of free car parking. Limited menu only cake sold. Definitely worth a stop

Called with my wife for a coffee whilst we were on holiday and found this establishment to be first class, my coffee and cake was just perfect, the two young girls that served us were fantastic, will definitely go back when we are next in the area.

Our Dentist recommended that we visit here! He was quite right too as we would probably have missed out on a lovely experience. Eleanor herself was serving in the shop/cafe and we had a little chat.

We saw the sign from the road through Embleton an decided to stop and have a look. A stunning shop of unusual bits & pieces (I may have treated myself to something) with some tables inside and out to treat yourself to a cup of tea and a cake.

Been a couple of times now ...the gifts are over priced...and so many of them if the two tables are taken there's nowhere else to sit especially in this northumbrian weather ...not the same when you have to resort to a carry out cuppa yet again

After a glorious walk along the beach, we would have loved a cup of tea, cake, souvenir... We got there at two minutes past 4.00. Too late. Most strange.
