Stumbled across a great find, what a great cafe! Lovely choice of homemade cakes and drinks but the best bit was meeting the lovely Piper. The most well behaved resident cafe dog ever!!

This was a great find. A small café which offers soya milk. Didn't try the cakes but they looked delicious. Impressed by the gluten/dairy free offer too

Hi
Glad you enjoyed your visit and thank you for taking time to review us. We often have 4 or 5 gluten free options (but because they are delicious sometimes they sell out, reducing the options!) Hope to see you again.
Best wishes

Great choice of the most unusual flavoured cakes ever (eg; rhubarb, mulled Apple, stout & chocolate or plum and mulled wine) all deliciously moist and dog friendly to boot well worth a visit !

Popped in for tea and cake but ended up ordering the best Hot Chocolate I’ve ever had! It was piping hot, creamy and 70% cocoa. Delicious! It was the 70% cocoa that swung it as don’t like things super sweet. Divine! Fab selection of cakes and buns too. Cute place. It’s on my list now!
