Large range of teas and one of the Best tasting coffees in Westcliff and Southend. Light snacks and homemade cakes. Small and quirky; always friendly.

This place is a hidden gem, opposite Halfords/Sainsbury on the London Road, next to the toy shop! Great atmosphere. Quirky décor/furniture!

I did not know if or where i could sit in this tiny little place, I felt too awkward. There was just about a spot for me. My cup of coffee was very nice but I had little idea what was available or how they like you to order

We went for a morning stroll around Westcliff and walked past this quirky coffee/tea shop set back from the main row of shops. We ear-marked it for our coffee stop later in the day and I'm pleased we did, despite there being lots of choice for alternate cafes. All the cakes are homemade and look appetising and delicious; therefore it... More

me and better half popped into anke's tea shop after it was recommended by a friend on facebook. The shop itself feels like an eclectic/eccentric old ladies front room with comfy sofas/seats and lots of things to look at, books to read and games to be played with it has that feeling of being welcomed in to your favourite aunts...

I came here with a friend and loved it. I ordered coronation chicken on toast which I thought was different as I have only had it as a sandwhich but wow! It was the most enjoyable lunch I've had in a long time! The coffee was perfectly balanced. I really enjoyed my time here and will be visiting again.
