Just sat in Ma Bakers having lunch, and the chef brought out the most fantastic looking home made banoffee pie! Couldn't resist a slice!
Friendly staff and fantastic service will certainly be going back.

Had the pleasureofmhaving lunch here today and was not disappointed. The light and airy cafe is attached to the 'World of Water' on the back road to Preston and is a must! We chose a BLT, a Brie and Cranberry open sandwich and our little guest had a half ham sandwich with chips. The bread was a lovely soft bloomer and the fillings were just how we had imagined them but better as you could taste the quality of the ingredients. We then (and we don't often) turned our head to the scrumptious looking cakes on display and again we were not disappointed. We will definitely return and look forward to seeing the cheery attentive staff who also made our lunch special. Well done all at Ma Bakers and see you soon.

There are a few cafes tagged on to outdoor garden and other centers in Blackpool and Ma Bakers is head and shoulders above them for cleanliness, service and consistent food quality. All the food is handmade including their excellent choice of soups and amazing cakes the service is always prompt and friendly. They use local produce where feasible and make a wide enough range of snacks and lunches. We've visited over 20 times over the last 3 or 4 years and are consistently happy and enjoy going back for the light open atmosphere, great food and lovely staff.

And another visit to Ma Bakers!
I have a sweat tooth so I felt I must highlight the delights of the in -house made cakes & deserts!
Afternoon tea and to indulge does not get much better than this. Take a look! Or better still go and taste. There is nothing else I can say, other than the proof is in the eating.
As General McArther said! "I SHALL RETURN"

After hearing and reading excellent reviews we thought we would visit ourselves but am sorry to say that we were disappointed. We found the food acceptable but nothing to rave about and the cost at £27 for two certainly on the high side.
[ only the day before we had had a full excellent 3 Course lunch including drinks for £23, which
was arguably better, a few miles away}
Sorry but we won't visiting you again.

As with all reviews we do accept your comments! But in truth we are somewhat confused.
The cost of £27 as you state, does not really convey exactly what your choices were!
Nor does your comment about another restaurant!
We do feel in all fairness that if one is to compare! then surely it is common sense to compare like for like.
We do ask all our clients if they are completely happy with their choices. It is a pity that your comments were not brought to our attention at the point of your visit.
We are sorry for your disappointment.
