“A varied and interesting shop”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

We found this a lovely shop to browse in - a bit like Lakeland with alcohol. We had a hot chocolate in the cafe after a braising walk - It took a while to arrive, but it was the best hot chocolate I've had outside of a chocolate shop.

“Nice place”
Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Omly criticism is the lack of space. More indoor tables would be good but we squeezed 4 adults and 3 children round a smallish table. The choice of hot food is limited which is a good thing as they have clearly concentrated on seasonal fare and quality. We had the stew, the macaroni cheese and some jacket potatoes all were excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend. I got unlucky with my cake as it was very very dry but everyone elses I am told were really good. There are a lot of places to go in Southwold but dont overlook this cafe for a light bite.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed November 21, 2013

We always call in here for tea and cake when we're in Southwold - sitting outside if it's nice weather, or inside if not. We only ever have tea and cake, but it's always good (the carrot cake was fabulous!) with proper pots of tea. Great shop too - lots of stuff you don't find elsewhere.

“Love the dogs !!! Southwold loves dogs !!! ( all shops all cafés everywhere)”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 via mobile

I have lived in a small village near Southwold for a long time and I when I moved I decided that would go to Southwold as often as I can !!! I love it here for brekkie yummy sausage sandwiches with adnams ketchup I come here regularly with my sister as the outside bit is lovely especially in summer and FOR MY LOVELY DOG !!!! Who also comes with me shopping in town too. Southwold loves dogs and if you do not maybe Southwold isn't for you. Great staff,Great food and great shop :) .
