Charming and cosy location opposite the Opera House. We had the Derbyshire Cream Tea which was lovely except for the 'jam' which was a very runny red syrup. Offer a decent jam and it would be an excellent cream tea.

Went with my husband for afternoon tea on New Year's Eve. Had booked a table in advance and were positioned by the fire and window. So warm and felt very comfortable. Very attentive service. Food was very yummy and struggled to finish it all. Building inside is very homely and made you feel relaxed. Would very much recommend.

No 6 is always a pleasant place for a tea or coffee or something more substantial. On my last visit - a wintry morning - it was good to settle into a cosy corner to chat with friends. If I only want a snack I enjoy the cheese scone but there is always a good selection of cakes too. The... More

If you are out and about in Buxton, wandering round the park, shopping, enjoying the festival, or going to a matinee at the Opera House, there is only one place to have tea, and that is No. 6. It offers fine teas, an interesting selection of fruity teas (I love the apple and mint), well made coffee, great cakes, toasted... More

Return visit to this very attractive and well set out cafe. Waitress was very helpful (with one hiccup- see below) and drinks provided were good. 1 In common with a previous report we asked for WiFi password and were given one - one that didn't work! 2 We find the reservation system confusing as we and others came in to...

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....
