Upon visiting this delicious looking chocolate shop I was amazed at how friendly, professional and knowledgable the girl in the shop was. She knew the answer to every question I asked as I was undecided about which products / gifts I should buy. This is a member of staff to be treasured like the chocolate within!!

Meet friends here every week for coffee and a chat. The girls at the server are really nice and friendly, without being familiar. The coffee is good and the cakes very tempting. The surroundings are pleasant and offer a variety of seating areas, either comfy chairs, or seating at tables indoors and then tables outside. The café is in a... More

This cafe is tucked away in the small shopping precinct in Sudbury between the town centre and the local bus station. They serve light snacks, sandwiches and cakes etc and decent teas and coffee. The best bits are the friendly staff and the attention to customer service. All very simple, but nice folks, nice place, nice atmosphere. Thanks

We regularly pop in to get drinks to take away, the staff are very friendly and efficient. I always have the milk chocolate melt which is the best I've had and I'm told the flat white is excellent too!
