Had champagne afternoon tea. Staff attentive and helpful. Sandwiches looked like they'd been made in advance and came with wilted leaves and dried edges. The cakes were inventive but very sickly and sweet. A chocolate cylinder was described as deconstructed apple pie but contained sweetened cream, chocolate mousse, apple and chocolate cornflake cake. Everything seemed to contain sweetened cream. Desserts... More

Great little coffee shop. This is my local and would choose it above all the large chains. Great for brunch also.

Favourite coffee shop - cakes look delightful but have yet to sample. I live within the vicinity and opt for Cake Boy as my no.1 coffee stop. Lovely views of the Thames too!

I went to Cake Boy for afternoon tea yesterday, it was a wonderful experience. The staff are charming and helpful. The cakes were superb. A delight for the eyes and tastebuds. Would recommend.

Poped in for a coffee and spotted a range of salads. My choice was chicken tomato pasta salad. Smiling friendly, freshly prepared salads and cakes, good coffee, outdoor seating, sunny day... Anything else?! :)

I was given the macaroons and champagne gift for a birthday treat. Delicious macaroons with champagne in a stylish environment by the Thames. Staff were very helpful. The downside is Cakeboy is very out of the way and difficult to find, amongst lots of appartment blocks. Personally I would only go there again if I lived in the area.

I visited Cake Boy today with my mum for a champagne afternoon tea and had such a lovely time. We have been for quite a few afternoon teas in various places in London, and this was definitely one of our favourites. Rather than the traditional finger sandwiches we had two different rolls, one with chicken Caesar filling and one with... More

I m going in this place almost every day for a quick breakfast and I have to say that they have a lot of pastry, coffees are made very good and the staff is always very polite and kind! I tried a few times to have lunch as well and they do a lot of panini and salad which are... More

I was very disappointed with Cake Boy - nothing special, not a great selection of cakes, many are standard types of cakes e.g. loaf cakes, croissants, cupcakes. Was expecting more decadent cakes. The woman who served appeared very disinterested and did not know what was in the only 2 decadent cakes available. Toilets were available but not very clean. I... More

My partner bought me the afternoon tea last year for my birthday and we have only just got around to using it. We arrived to be welcomed by the lovely staff who showed us to our table already laid out for us. The staff were so lovely and helpful and as I am pregnant they catered for providing different sandwiches... More
