“FRIENDLY, FANTASTIC FAYRE, SUPER SERVICE, SIMPLY THE BEST”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

Today was the first visit to Burton for many years for myself.

My fiend and I called in to this tearoom off the old market square.

We were greeted with a very friendly welcome from the staff and the establishment exuded a super atmosphere, even the background music was perfect.

Whilst there we had a very enjoyable brunch of the highest quality, a pot of tea that was pure nectar and apple pies to die for. I understand all made on the premises.

Whilst waiting for our meal we could see the mixers going etc and the smells of fresh baking were a pure pleasure.

Whilst on a days shopping we normally have a bite to eat, but the difference today was that the bite to eat became the highlight of our day as all other establishments paled into insignificance, next to Helen's Bake House and Tearoom.

Thank you to all the staff.

We may live a long way from Burton now, but we will be back, if only to sample more of your culinary delights.

Kind Regards

David & Chris

“Great breakfasts”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Helen's Bakehouse & Tearooms is fantastic for morning coffee and a cake and traditional afternoon tea - but they do so much more too.

If you love cooked breakfasts with fresh local ingredients, if you are a fan of a perfectly poached eggs or comfort food and childhood favourites like spaghetti on toast - then this is somewhere you need to check out.

Helen's is also great for lunches and there are lots of quality cakes, bread, pies, savouries and pastries from local suppliers that you can buy to take home.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Absolutely lovely. The service was great, I wasn't left waiting, the staff are friendly & the cakes are fabulous! I also think it's fantastic that they try and source locally when they can. If I had to be picky, it's a little pricey but you certainly get what you pay for. :)
