Popped in for crumpets and coffee deal, staff very warm and friendly. Coffee was very good and crumpets tasty with lots of butter. Would pop in again for lunch, menu looked good.

My partner and I stopped here for an afternoon tea break whilst enjoying walking around Bakewell. It was snowing, and really cold so we fancied a warm drink. I hadn't been feeling well (Travel sick from the journey from the midlands) so didn't fancy anything too sweet. We both opted for one of their deals with a crumpet or scone... More

Very good tea, scones and toasted tea cakes with friendly service...nice selection of cakes and the sandwiches looked pretty good on the next table.Good value and another visit planned on our...

We called in for a light lunch on a chilly Sunday, we both had soup, mine mushroom and tarragon and my partner had carrot and coriander. Both were very nice, mine was much hotter than hers and both needed a little seasoning but a very good portion with nice fresh bread. We will definitely go again as their cakes looked... More

Quick and efficient but friendly service. Good range on offer for lunch which was very reasonably priced for a Bakewell establishment.

Popped into this delightful cafe on a cold Tuesday morning. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The heaters were on which was welcome. Just ordered plain hot chocolate they came quickly and were lovely. Seating upstairs as well as separate toilets.

We wanted breakfast with free range eggs and were amazed to find so many cafes in Bakewell still serving the cruel type of eggs. We asked in several and our spirits were beginning to droop when, thank goodness, we found this lovely little cafe which does serve free range eggs. The whole breakfast was beautifully cooked, too. The cakes looked... More
