We have had many great meals here but sadly last week may have put us off forever. Not being very hungry we asked to share a Tramezzini which was on the menu as Bacon,Brie, Cranberry / Avo. When our meal arrived there was no avo,...More

Absolutely love the cappuchino with cream, and it is a generous topping of cream! And you must try the apple pie, it is wow! They also make good salads. And to top it, you can do some shopping, from linnen, candles, etc.

I found this lovely jewel in Shelly Beach. It is for sure the BEST Coffee Shop on the South Coast. I had the AppleTart in the cup and lovely coffee. I was so impressed. I will go back for sure. Excellent service and excellent food!

Old world ambience among classy interior decor items. Beautiful china and linen napkins. Very friendly, welcoming staff and carrot cake to die for. I believe the apple crumble served in a teacup is also scrumptious.

This a Decor Store with a very nice coffee shop integrated into it. Breakfasts are well thought out alternatives to the usual "bacon, egg and tomato". A limited breakfast menu but there is something for everybody. Well cooked, freshly prepared and delightfully served in "antique...More

Tea at Bay Tree is a big, gooey slice of Tea and Cake heaven.We set out to make Tea at Bay Tree feel like a visit to a typical English Tea Room. Mismatched vintage style china, home-baking and a welcome that makes you feel like you're with family. Well, some of you feel like family to us too! Our new range includes BIG homemade cakes, cheesecake, apple pie and of course freshly baked scones! Hand-cut sandwiches, bagels and toasties and daily specials all make up a delicious, cafe-bistro style menu for you to enjoy. We love Tea at Bay Tree, and we think it shows. And we know you're going to love us too!
