“Delictable Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 November 2013

We've been visiting this tea room and shop ever since it opened many years ago and it's never let us down. The owners passion for her scrumptious offerings as if it were still her first year of trading, clearly working very hard to ensure every visitor leaves delighted. It's a true deli in every sense of the word, lots of fresh and in some cases still warm cooked goods, in addition to chilled and shelved yummies, nicnacs and gifts. If you've never visited, try to avoid a peak busy time so you have time to peruse all that is on offer. The cafe is small with only a handfull of tables, one cute one set in a nook of a bay window. There is a good range of items on the menu including fresh daily soup, sandwiches and meals or you can simply enjoy something (or several things, temptation rules here) from the deli counter. I love the way they use pretty china and cute table wear to make your visit extra special and different. The detail and care really makes it stand head and shoulders above it's competition. The service is excellent too, with nothing too much trouble and any issues quickly and pleasantly resolved.

I love the deli so much no visit to the area is complete without popping in. Top tip: if your on holiday, bring a cool box so you can take a few of those goodies home, extending the delights of Horning for that little bit longer.

“Tempting treats”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2013

2 adults and 3 kids went here for light lunch today. Kids had wonderful tasty cheese scones while adults had vegetable soup - sounds ordinary but absolutely delicious - the best soup we've had in ages. Lots of flavour. Service excellent. The young girl serving us was very pleasant and kind. Had to purchase a few foodie gifts plus a cake for us! Really hard to pick as they all looked extremely tempting! Some extra seating and maybe some cheerful background music would've been nice. We'd definitely go again and would recommend to anyone in search of delicious food.

“Deli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2013

Very Good Deli but very expensive - £3 for a cake! Full of lots of goodies and gift ideas. Quaint little place but worth a visit.

“Full of delicious treats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2013

After an enjoyable trip on the Mississippi riverboat which operates from Horning we were ready for coffee & a nibble... Ventured inside and found so much to choose from - well stocked deli, lots of interesting things just asking to be bought & taken home... And delectable goodies to eat there and then. Finally settled for millionaire's shortbread and cafetiere of really good coffee - so good that we bought brand to take home.

“Intimate cafe and treasure trove”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2013

Stopped for a late lunch in theis upmarket deli / cafe / treasure trove of gifts. The menu was a good choice of both savoury lunches and snack, as well as cakes. We had the sausage roll, with salad and relish which was tasty. The cafe is small, with about 4 or 5 tables, so it was unexpected but enjoyable, for a change, to strike up a conversation with other people in the cafe, in pleasant, relaxed surroundings, with friendly service. It felt like a a holiday place where everyone was having and good time and were happy to pass the time of day. Will definitely go again.
