Stay away from this place at all costs if you are on/thinking about or have just been on a diet.
The ambrosial lemon drizzle cake.... the croissant so light they float out of the shop on their own.... need I say more. Don't go there!

Came here with some girlfriends for a gossip and it was a lovely little place! I had a chicken pasty which was delicious with actual chicken (not questionable cubes as other places!) and not too oily either. My friends had pains au chocolat which were fresh, authentic and tasty. The bread looked amazing too. Staff were very friendly.

Visited on a Thursday lunchtime, the shop was packed but we managed to get a table after a few minutes.
There was such a selection of cakes, we couldn't decide, so opted for a selection to share between us. All were exceptional, in fact even the coffee was to die for. Staff were friendly and accommodating despite being rushed off their feet.
My only suggestion would be to label the pastries, breads and cakes at the counter, as when ordering we weren't sure exactly what some things were! All in all a delightful experience and I am already planning my next visit!

An excellent bakery. All the products are delicious. Staff very friendly and efficient. Also serves great coffee. One of the best cafés and bakery's we have found in the local area (and we have sampled many!)

Visited penn hill branch today - made our order! Waited 25mins no drinks and no food until we went up to counter to find our order had been lost? Hot cross buns we had ordered had now sold out and no offer of anything else. The sour-faced waitress that served us was very rude about it and quite frankly couldn't care less! we asked for our money back and walked out! we will not be visiting there again - get better service in mcdonalds! All there care about is there regular customers!
