Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We were driving through Debenham and were looking for a coffee and saw this little place. Friendly services and welcoming on entering. Ordered two take away coffees - very good quality coffee. Noticed it was dog friendly if you are out dog walking. Highly recommend...this little gem.More

Writing on half of my partner. He visited for first time after meaning to for some time and he was not happy. Staff unfriendly when he walked in and his drink was placed in take away cup with no choice of proper cup. He then...asked if they were closing and was told in 15 mins. Surely that’s plenty of time to serve someone in a proper cup and allow them to drink. At very least a “do you mind takeaway as we are closing soon” would have been better. It was his first and last visitMore

Wanted to try this place for a while as had driven past a few times but won’t ever go back. Wasn’t greeted on arrival, they seemed put out I was there even though there was only 1 other customer in there. I was eventually asked...what I would like. I said a cuppachino please & asked for a particular piece of bread pudding from the counter which seemed to annoy her as after I asked for it I was met with ‘you know they are all from the same bake’ I said yes but I don’t like crust. She then said the piece I had asked for had some crust. I said that’s fine. She then said she can get me another bit. Why such an issue just to get me the piece I asked for without discussion/attitude! Terrible customer service. I said don’t bother & left. Won’t be giving any of my money to a place that makes me feel so unwelcomeMore

Excellent chocolate fridge cake. Possibly the best I've ever had. Took the cake and coffee and sat in the shade on the grass under a tree opposite. Perfect

You are always greeted here as a friend. Breakfasts, lunch and takeaway products are always perfect. Squidgy white rolls are the best. Cakes are lovely.

Always stop here when cycling through Debenham. Excellent coffee and selection of cakes etc. Also delighted to see old skool 'Suffolk Rusks' being championed!

Had read previous good reviews so thought we would give it a try. Loads of homemade cakes to choose from, sausage rolls & sandwiches made to order. Decided on chocolate & walnut cake & lemon drizzle to take away. Both good size pieces, really fresh...& so very tasty. Small inside but made very welcome. Highly recommendMore

I would highly recommend this small cafe for friendliness, service and the most amazingly delicious cakes. I had the homemade Battenberg cake. Wow. Gorgeous.

We popped into the Vanilla bakehouse for breakfast one morning. It was larger inside than I expected after reading previous reviews. I think there were 4 tables, and we sat in the corner with plenty of space. My two sons were welcomed, and there were...books and colouring pencils available. Everything was freshly cooked and the staff were friendly. Their sandwiches sounded good too, but we already had lunch plans, so didn’t try them.More

We stopped off in Debenham on our way home from a week's holiday in Suffolk. We decided to have tea/coffee and a cake at the Vanilla Bake House and were so impressed with the food and the service that we ordered sandwiches to take with...us for the journey home (they were lovely, by the way). I knew my Suffolk Ploughman's was fresh because the lady serving us popped across the road to the butcher's to get the ham! I'd recommend both the village (very pretty) and this cafe. The cakes were excellent and the friendly service a bonus - even agreeing to let my daughter take a selfie with the staff! It is small, but with a little pleasant co-operation everyone managed to be seated comfortably. We will definitely be back next time we're in the county.More
