Loved the bread too. Busy place obviously... More

Had a light breakfast in this charming little cafe, the ladies that run it are very nice and the cafe is decorated in a retro style. Lovely pot of tea with crumpets.

I came here on a Sunday afternoon for some brunch, I was surprised by the range of food served. I went for the salmon and scrambled egg on toast, which was amazing. The toast was thick and soft and the eggs were cooked perfectly. There was a good selection of cakes on offer, the carrot and toffee were absolutely beautiful.... More

I have visited this cafe many times. The staff are efficient and friendly. The food and drinks are great. The cupcakes, of which the cafe is named after, are wonderful. My only complaint is that it is rather small and not very pushchair friendly and do, in inclement weather and in winter, there is often no room, due to its... More
