“The best place for a proper cup of tea, cake and gossip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Run by the most friendliest men I've ever met.
It is situated overlooking the canal where there are plenty of ducks and water lillies and is across the road from Chester's Water Tower Gardens.
It is Breastfeeding Friendly Chester awarded and has a toddler booster chair, toys and changing mat for your little one.

The menu is amazing and has a specials board which changes regulary - I would certainly recommend the Cheese-on-toast (my 2 year old son can't get enough of it) all prepared in the cafe and served with fresh salad (not just a garnish!) and homemade chutney - their carrot chutney is simply divine!
They serve many different cake combinations and the servings are incredibly generous - perfect for 2 forks if you're feeling good but just as tasty with 1. what is eaten at the cake fairy remains at the cake fairy!

The cafe itself is relatively small but can accommodate pushchairs and children. There are lots of china tea sets which are used for cups of tea and plates for the cakes. little fingers be prepared to stick up whilst drinking!

you can also purchase various items such as unique bags, gifts or order a special cake for birthdays, christenings and weddings - One of the Cake Fairy owners baked and decorated Sting's wedding cake!

Finally a trip to Chester would not be complete without giving this cosy cafe a try and guaranteed to return again and again.

“Lovely cakes in a friendly setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

I have visited the Cake Fairy on several occasions, with my cycling buddies or with my family and it has always been a treat. It is small, cosy and off the beaten track but always worth the effort.
The selection and quality of the homemade cakes are very good, the big decision being what to choose. There is a good choice of drinks and tea is served in lovely teapots as it was meant to be.
But the best thing is the service. The two people who run the cafe are very friendly and welcoming. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you are never rushed.

“Delicious cakes and dedicated service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012 via mobile

This tiny cafe, tucked away in Earls Port is just the place to enjoy a light lunch, afternoon tea or just a coffee and cake.

All the confectionery is made in house and is irresistible.

I have always been welcomed warmly, as have my guests on many occasions.

A hidden gem in Chester.
