“Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2014 via mobile

Took my Mum and daughter out for the afternoon Bank Holiday Monday. Had a lovely walk around the Abbey Gardens then thought as a treat we'd go for a cup of tea and a cake. How disappointed were we? VERY. Took a few minutes to get a table then we sat there and sat there and sat there. One waitress on a busy afternoon and one chap on the counter. Two uninspiring almond macaroons and one piece of dry chocolate gateaux. Why did we bother. (The bill arrive very quickly).

“Great cake and coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

Tryed this shop on Easter Sunday, I have walked past many times but couldn't resist any longer, the shop was busy we had to wait for 5 mins for a table to be cleaned but staff where efficient and welcoming. Had a double expresso and a slice of gateau, my wife had latte and a scone all where very good.

“Real coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2014

In a city crawling with international pretend coffee there are a few gems and this is one. Have to admit I avoid of necessity the delicious patisserie these days. But you must not!

“The best cream cakes in BSE!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2014

I called in here after picking up my friend from the station who was staying with us for the weekend and enjoyed a nice leisurely cup of tea and hot chocolate! If it wasn't for the fact we were on our way to a dinner engagement, we would've both indulged in the very appealing cream cakes that were on offer - but will save that for next time!!
