Has some cakes you don't see in any other shop large slices too bit cramped but worth it for the cake. Not the cheapest but well worth a visit. They also do a lovely breakfast with good ingredients . Teas are really nice too.

Hello Angela I'm afraid we can't cater for you. We are a cafe which has a small kitchen without a separate area to prepare certain foods Regards stoptheworldcafe
