Stopped by for tea and cake on a cold and wet day. Tiny place, but a warm welcome and the bakes are very hard to resist. Very friendly host, and some interesting local craft on sale.

We didn’t even know there was a coffee shop in Houghton that would be open on a Sunday morning so this was always going to be a bonus find. It is quite small (3 tables) so not the place for a quite or private chat...More
