The spread for the afternoon tea was delicious and we probably ate about 50% of the food that was served to us. This meant we got a brucey bonus and were... More

A friend of mine had a red white cocolate cake, another friend a brownie - we were all happy and stuffed by the end! They also have savoury snacks (e.g. panini, which one of my mates... More

Stopped here for lunch with a friend, Panninis and sandwhiche's are excellent value and if you like cakes, then this place has a wide selection of home made cakes all of which look incredible, The Peanut butter brownies are incredible and dont get me started on the bannoffee pie!

What a quirky cafe with funky decor! A huge range of cakes all made onsite. Hot food is really tasty too. Don't go here if you are on a diet!!

Had a lovely ciabatta and all the home made cakes were amazing, but too many to choose from settled for the iced Victoria sponge we where not disappointed it was delicious. Skinny latte was... More
