We visited here on a Saturday morning for brunch, we managed to park right outside and we were able to get a table straight away which we were surprised with given it was a Saturday. I ordered the eggs Florentine (I did order avocado on the side however this was forgotten but it was filling enough without it), the coffee... More

Stumbled upon this little gem while visiting clinic for my daughters scan.. the most amazing sausage rolls, brownies and Lemon drizzle cake. We have another scan next week... can't wait to go again.. delicious.

Good coffee. Great carrot cake. Nice service. Not so keen on the sausage roll though. Cute little cafe, and will be visiting again.

Have popped in here 6 times during the last week to treat myself to a flat white as reward for a stiff walk completed. Good coffee, friendly staff and lovely pastries and bread. The breakfast, yet to be sampled, also looked great. What's not to like....... Beats your coffee chains any day of the week in my humble opinion

This is very close to where I live, so I'm quite regular here. It serves great coffee. The cakes are usually good to excellent. The food can be a bit wholesome for my taste (I prefer the breakfast from the Al Fresco 100m away), but it's good if that's what you fancy. Staff are always friendly.

We've called in here a few times now while passing by. Everything in the window always looks so fresh and tempting its difficult to walk by and not call in. So far we've only ever called in for coffee and cake, but I am very tempted by the breakfasts! Coffee and cake is always really nice, service excellent and prices... More

Visited Baked Nation for afternoon coffee and cake. This is a nice little café with a selection of cakes, and food, at sensible prices. Newspaper and selection of books are available to borrow. My coffee was good, but served too hot for my liking. Nice mugs of warm milk (with a straw) was available for children, although I can’t remember... More

Bad night in a local B and B that didn't serve "B" and while waiting for my son I realised I was outside a place that did coffee and breakfast. Two coffee eggs & pancetta etc and a croissant later I felt human again. Reasonably priced, pleasant service to table and fresh and tasty food.

Went to Baked Nation for the first time today, and will go back. We had a nice English breakfast (garlicy mushrooms were very good) and very nice coffee. We bought a sourdough rye loaf as we left, which is very nice. Worth walking 5 mins out of the town centre to get a more individual experience than all the chain... More

This is a lovely coffee shop, great staff, good food and fab coffee. Whenever we go it's always busy which is so good as I love it when local places are doing so well.
