Not in the best location but the friendly staff and clean premises make up for it. Plus the lovely range of cakes available. Especially the gluten free carrot cake. This was moist and full of flavour . Prices are reasonable too

Such a nice warm friendly cafe/cake shop. The cakes are delicious and cater to everyone (gluten free, dairy free etc...), they even let out dog in with us and offered him treats! Definitely recommend coming here for yummy cakes!!!

Took my Mum here today for a light lunch. We were escaping the pouring rain and couldn't have been made more welcome. The sandwiches & cake were delicious and nothing was too much trouble. Go looking for this venue...easy parking and lovely friendly staff.
