“A little gem!”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Having seen the reviews on here, I thought we had to visit this place on our recent visit to York.

It's a bit out of the way, a 5 min walk from the Shambles, but it is brilliant. Set in a very chic cafe setting, with plenty of sitting outside, you could see how popular it was with the locals. We had 4 cupcakes to go, not cheap at £1.70 each, but they were delicious.

Yes it's only cupcakes, but they are probably the best you will ever find. Definitely worth a visit.

“amazing amazing amazing”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

Visited here in may with hubbie after reading reviews, we were not dissapointed at all. Quaint little cafe, nice decor with a lovely touch of different cups and saucers, we loved the variety of cupcakes and were amazed at hoe light and airy they tasted, also a good selection to try there and then or take away. Loved this place and the girls serving were very friendly and made you feel welcome, will be back again if we ever visit York.

“Little crumb of heaven”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

If you like cupcakes & on the day special cakes and lovely smiley personality from the stuff and good tea range to choose from this is the place.
Popped in to kill some time and was very pleased did so.
I had a chai tea and the chocolate crumble cake and was so surprised how reasonable price was under £4.00 and cake could easily be for 2.
Tea is all served in China teacups with the wonderful view of the York Minster and outside seating to.
Very chilled and relax.
I will be popping in more with friends when visiting the city.

Thank Jasper W

“Great cupcakes in a charming setting”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 via mobile

You will find the best cupcakes in York here, but go early as they may sell out. If so, check out their mobile wagon by the Minster.
