“Lovely cake and coffee in peace...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

Although small this is a great little bookshop. Lovely homemade cake and a good serving of tea, it's ideal for a quiet cuppa and a browse through their eclectic books.

Delightful concept - good books, delicious coffee, delightful conversation - this is the place to while away an hour. Make the detour and indulge yourself. SA

“Christmas shopping with a difference”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

Tucked away in the pretty village of Great Bardfield is a little shop to warm your heart. Browse through the carefully selected titles on the tightly packed shelves, including a marvellous children's section. You get the impression that a coveted slot on shelves is only reserved for those books meeting only the most exacting criteria! And to top it all off, a cup of coffee and a slice of delicious home made cake while you look. The most friendly and helpful service only adds to the overall experience. So if you want to shop in a different way, stress-free and joyous, away from the madding crowds, this is your place. They're up against the big boys - high streets, shopping centres and online, so vote with your feet and pop in.

“Very welcoming independent bookshop with coffee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

A very small, but perfectly formed,shop. Looks lovely, stocks a very wide range of new and second hand books AND you can sit and relax with a good cup of coffee and a piece of cake. What more could you want if you love books and cake?
