“Proper home-made cake alert!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Seriously delicious proper home-made cakes in a tiny café with a couple of outside spaces which are bliss on a hot day. Friendly, peaceful atmosphere. Fully independent, local, very reasonably priced, centrally located (in the pretty alleyway between St Nicolas' church and the Market Place): fantastic. Also sells books, children's books, music, cards and posters.

“Shoemakers - well worth a walk to it.”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Shoemakers is actually a café & Christian bookshop. A friend introduced it to me & I go there as often as I can. If you're visiting Newbury and want a light snack or some yummy cake do try!
There are always a gr8 selection of home made soups accompanied by their also home made bread. The humus is lovely & crunchy and there are a range of hot and cold sarnies and the - once again - homemade cakes are divine. A range of hot & cold drinks is available and if you need a greetings card or special present you can browse while you wait for food.
There are also outside tables. Prices very reasonable as I believe it's not for profit.
It's definitely a gr8 place to pop into if you don't want to be away from the shops for long, or just relax and enjoy.
