My wife and I visited for an afternoon cup of tea and a cake. The range of cakes wasn't extensive with either cup cakes or tray bakes to choose from. However the cup cake and Rocky Road slice we had were excellent and none too small either. Service was good and the place was clean and welcoming.

Enjoyed home made soup and other delights in this really pleasant cafe. Service was good and themed decor well thought out. Particularly good for Alice in Wonderland fans. Nice collection of gifts for sale too.
