Two amazing gluten free cakes were made for my mum's birthday with only two days notice!!! I can't thank The Apiary enough! The staff are always so friendly and helpful and their gluten free rolls are a must. I wouldn't go anywhere else x

Great flat white coffee and freshly baked sausage roll, both made to perfection. It is obviously a well used cafe as everybody seemed to know each other, creating a lovely feel to the place. Will definitely re-visit.

Something makes me walk past the other cafes and eateries in Harleston. Very good coffee? Good selection of cakes, pizza slices, quiches, even bacon butties. Warm, convivial and welcoming. Oh! And lovely staff! Visit when in town, you won’t be disappointed! Richard Brooke-Haughton
