Visited with my daughter and a friend and her son for brunch on Sunday. Requested scrambled egg instead of fried egg for my cooked breakfast and was told it would be extra as it incurred an extra egg considering it's £7.95 thought it was excessive (thankfully I didn't have to pay as swapped the black pudding for an extra egg) my daughter had a ciabatta pizza, which was half of a baguette with two slices of tomato and melted cheese. My friends son had toast which was cut to thickly and dully hurt his mouth both children left their meals unfortunately. Which meant buying brownies at a further £2.25. Don't get me wrong I don't mind paying for food however I don't feel that cleaveux' have the pricing quite right nor is the children's menu..! One of the waitresses is lovely and clearly is made for public facing roles she made the experience more enjoyable !!

I first saw them on Britain's Best Bakery - and wasn't disappointed!

It's a lovely cafe in an amazing bakers shop. There's a great choice of bread and cakes (and good coffee) and you can look through the window and watch your bread being made. Everything we had was delicious.

Best of all this business helps the Clervaux Trust to support young people and vulnerable adults. You come away feeling the world is a better place :-).

I've heard about this place but never actually visited before. Really enjoyed a coffee and scone in pleasant surroundings. Staff were pleasant and will return soon.
I might even take up a bread making course in the future!

Very nice atmosphere. Staff very friendly, polite, and efficient. Great coffees and fully recommend the full breakfast! Nice lunches too. It is pricier than other places but you pay for local, organic produce and, for example, the bacon isn't the wafer-thin rubbish you might be able to get elsewhere. Some people will always find something to complain about but I think they might struggle here!
