“lovely cake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Went with friends for lunch. One of the best cups of tea I've had in a long time. Nice choice of sandwiches and the cake is delicious - all home made and fresh. Nice surroundings and service with a smile, what more could we ask for?

“Afternoon tea”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014

Great selection of cakes and sandwiches with unlimited tea or coffee at a reasonable price. Very friendly and accommodating. The tea room is interesting and eclectic, almost as though you've fallen down the rabbit hole. Will definitely go again.

“Tea and Cakes in a Relaxed Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We made our first visit to this cafe to attend a cultural event that was being hosted. This resulted in a rapid expansion of customers in a short space of time and we were impressed at the cheerful and efficient way everybody was looked after. Excellent choice of teas served in a mixture of traditional china and very good cakes. The decor helps to create a relaxed atmosphere and we enjoyed the experience.

“Quirky, but not lively enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 September 2013

This place is quirky and has its own style but its at the wrong (and windy!) end of Osborne Road so its doesn't attract enough footfall to have a good atmosphere. This can mean that the cakes are stale. The prices are high, which can only be justified if the food is always excellent, which sometimes it isn't.
