Was in New Cumberland to run an errand and found this wonderful little shop and cafe. The location is easy to get to from the PA turnpike and will become a destination for us when passing by in the future. They have a lovely selection of teas to choose from. Paired a nice Irish Breakfast tea with a wonderful meat pie (lamb). It was heavenly. Flakey buttery crust with perfectly herbed filling and a nice little bit of a sweet chutney to accompany it. Perfect! They had so many good things it was hard to choose - including scotch eggs, veggie "meat" pie, traditional Michigan pasties, scones (with clotted cream), soups, and many other all homemade things to choose from. We also had a fruit turnover (peach) served warm with a dollop of whipped cream along side. If you love truly good homemade food in an unpretentious atmosphere definitely don't miss this place.

After living away from the UK for 10 years, I miss the food so much & crave all the home cooked comfort foods, so when my husband told me there was a British cafe nearby, I was over the moon!!! Even more so when I tasted their full English breakfast!!!
Their sausage rolls, meat pies and scotch eggs are absolutely delicious & all homemade!
They sell UK/irish comfort foods as well & have a great selection.
We were very impressed & the owners are very friendly , we will be back for the afternoon tea which is priced at only $20.

Bought meat pies to go. Excellent selection of pies! Very nice crust (Cindy's recipe) & ample fillings. Make sure you ask for Cindy's reheating instructions.

Our daughter loves great tea, so this was a stop for her during a family weekend getaway. We had just hosted some UK girls in our home, so a chance to shop for the snacks they had exposed us to was great fun. The tea selection carried a variety of flavors for us to peruse. We took quite a few flavors home to try. Lunch was DE-LISH!!! And of course we had a scone and pot of tea. I would be embraced to say how much we spent in the grocery part of the store. Many things to take home and try.

We would go again and again!
