I can honestly say its the worse place I have ever spent money. Horrendously overpriced, foul mannered staff who clearly hate people and more signs than a company selling signs! The baked goods are OK, but no better than from a supermarket, yet you are...More

I recently passed by here with a friend and realised they served food - unless you have been there before it is not obvious! Excellect rustic surroundings and the food was good home cooked although basic it is very tasty

Strange place. Quirky ideas and some good looking food. Rather fierce matriarch behind the counter. Was pleased we went for the take away option....

Agree with other reviews...experience was less than enjoyable and over priced...the female Basil Fawlty behind the counter was a amusing distraction...won't be back though.

From the outside looked quaint and interesting. Popped in for lunch. There seems no structure to how its run. Help yourself to tea coffee but then I saw a chap go get people's drinks another time. Bench seating is awful, once seated you are trapped...More

Unique, funny, chilled, tasty, more-ish, great quality, great value, great atmosphere. If we stayed in their B&B we would never leave the building! Brilliantly hands-on, fresh in every sense. Don't pass this by if you are in Cowes or anywhere on the Island!

On a very wet morning in September four of us visited this Bakery primarily to keep dry. What a jewel of a place. We wish we had such a concept where we live, alas not. It was explained that we took a small board, choose...More
