Many of my friends think this is a great venue, I have only been here once for breakfast and it was okay. Maybe it's better for lunch and cakes etc. Breakfast was average at best, coffee was good and service good up to the point where we paid: no eye contact seemed stressed. There are better places in Leigh.

Went here with friends for coffee and cake. The cakes are delicious and are big portions. They also offer breakfast, brunch and lunch which is also very nice. It is usually busy and there are not too many tables but it is worth the wait.

I love this place as it's a little corner of food heaven in Leigh. It is local to where I live and serves the most amazing brunch and cakes! It's always a request from my family to bring their cake with me when I visit! The unicorn cake brightens any rainy day and is so light and fluffy! The staff... More

I went for breakfast with friends based on great reviews and was very disappointed. We were one of the first to arrive (so it wasn't busy) and it took 45 minutes for our coffees to come out. The food took forever and it was cold. We arrived at 9am, we left at 10:40. When we went to pay we asked... More

Best one yet! An old fashioned vibe with with the decor and presentation. A lovely variety of sandwiches and cakes which were stunningly tasty! Was able to ask for different options if there was any allergies. Great value for money and will defiantly be going back! Thanks for a great afternoon

My friend and I had lunch in this rather crowded cafe. We were put next to a pillar and it did feel rather squashed. The food however was lovely and the staff were really friendly and efficient. I had earl grey tea with a very peculiar tea strainer. Quite quirky I would visit again
