Called in for tea and cake during our visit. Service was quick and the tea and cake were both lovely. The problem really was a miserable waitress. We foolishly presumed there was wifi as our phones were telling us so. We asked for the password and the waitress didnt know so went to ask someone. Came back and gave us... More

Popped in after a spa afternoon at the Devonshire Dome, a lovely selection of cakes including 2 GF options. My only complaint was the cakes were not labelled and when we asked the waitress to tell us what they had she seemed rather flustered. All in all though we enjoyed our tea and cakes.

Called in for some fizz and a scone after a graduation. This is indeed, a cosy cafe, and warm (which in November is important). Cosy and warm possibly in part because it can get very tight on space - not so bad with a 3-4 year old, but I'd expect buggies/prams might be a challenge. Good staff. Relatively quick service....

Place has character, service was good and the menu is extensive. I had a cheese scone and hot chocolate both of which were lovely and hubbie had a... More

Fabulously friendly staff, a lovely atmosphere and good quality food, but the real stars of this place are the cakes! If you're not too worried about your waistline, you must visit and eat cake. If you are worried about your waistline, stop it and visit anyway and just go for a long walk afterwards!!

My girlfriend and I went here the other day on our visit to Buxton. The restaurant sits right near the Buxton opera house and right next to the Old Hall hotel - so perfect position. The layout inside is warm and friendly which is the same for the staff who were welcoming. I ordered the cheddar and chutney sandwiches on... More

We were in the Pavillion park and saw the no 6 tea rooms and thought we would call in for a coffee. There are 3 comfortable rooms which are tastefully decorated, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The menu is very extensive from gorgeous home made cakes to pastries and light meals all looking and tasting deliciousness. Certainly would... More
