“Excellent Cake”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

What a lovely place, so much cake to choose from, I have been here twice now and I intend to try every cake they sell ! The only negative is maybe some of the staff could be more friendly.

“The worst customer service ever !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Rude and argumentative staff - such a shame as the coffee, cake and surroundings are lovely. Staff need basic lessons in courtesy.Atmosphere not at all welcoming. We were enticed in by the lovely window display.

Unusual decor and nice looking cakes in the window but coffee quite expensive and not very large cup and the drink not hot enough.

“Cool place”
Reviewed 1 March 2014

We visited this great little cafe in Wilmslow town centre today. The interior decor, the staff and the food isn't in the least bit pretentious, unlike most of the surroundings and some of the inhabitants of this small Cheshire enclave.

From freshly prepared and very varied salads, to sausage and bacon baguettes I don't think anyone could be disappointed at what is presented.

Prices are reasonable and in my view represent value for money.

Parking is available on the large car park attached to Sainsburys, which is a two minute walk from this cafe on the opposite side of the main road. Street parking is also available if you can squeeze your car in between the plethora of Range Rovers and other forms of large SUV's (a necessary accessory when you live in the relatively flat topography of Cheshire), Bentleys and Aston Martins.

I recommend this excellent cafe.

“Best cafe experience outside of London and it is in Cheshire”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

I am not sure why I could not find this café listed on Trip Advisor. My husband and I have been visiting 2 or 3 times a week since it opened last year. The selection and quality of food is outstanding. At breakfast there is freshly made bacon or sausage baguettes with home made sauces, or toast or meusli. Coffee is top quality and leaf tea is served in pots. Lunches include a choice of soup, a selection of individual quiches, crispy baguettes filled with a selection of fillings, ciabatta filled with hot pulled pork or beef brisket, caramelised onion and mustard mayo, or the most tasty huge warm sausage rolls in the lightest of puff pastry. To accompany these is a daily selection of three sophisticated vegetable salads which can be mixed. All of this is available to take away and parcelled to the same exacting standard as service in the cafe. Then there is the difficult decision of which cake to chose - a selection not seen in Cheshire anywhere to my knowledge.

The décor is simple and modern with an outside area, the staff are most welcoming and efficient, the display and presentation of the food is an art which the owner ensures is always at the highest standard.
