“Pricey but beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

For a spot of lunch this place is excellent. They have a huge variety of sweet and savoury produce, from beetriot buns, to amazing looking frangipan, to giant meringues to pies and pizzas. Something for everyone! Portions could be bigger with the savoury food I feel for the price you pay but it all tastes great.

“Superb sarnies!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Great sandwiches and a snip at £3.45, huge with a salad garnish. Lovely cakes and a free filter coffee when you chose a cake from 'the table'. Down side is that although there were jacket potatoes to take away this did not extend to the eat in menu. Service was quick even thought they were clearly quite busy with one waitress.

“Wont be back - Shame this place HAD potential”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

My first review gave this cafe (cos this is what it is) 5 stars. We returned after driving 30 mins for the breakfast to find the new menu for savoury food offering only sandwiches. On entering the shop we said hello too the sales assistant behind the cake counter too be ignored. On entering the cafe a man was paying for food on looking closer they were actually leaving the food and drinks virtually untouched....we asked the boy working what the problem was and he was unaware of any problem and didn't seem bothered. We explained that we came all the way for there previously cooked breakfast and he explained that it was no longer on the menu....but would go and ask the person who had previously ignored us if they could cater for us to a definite NO...only what's on the menu....They explained that the chef had previously walked out because they couldn't cope with the menu (it wasn't extensive previously) and it would not be returning. Such a great shame. But after leaving we found another cafe not 2 minutes away which had a menu worth trying and it was busy too which grant's wasn't.....we will NOT be returning.

“Great cakes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

As we had hoped, a delicious selection of cakes (coffee ok, but not the best) - worth a return trip .
