Visited this cafe with a friend. Prices were crazy. How they can justify charging what they charge is mind boggling. Food was very tasty but small portions. Poor value for money. I'm sorry to say but I won't be returning again.

This place is adorable and the tea choices were extensive. The owner blends her own teas and is apparently internationally known. The team I had was very good and the lemon cake was delicious. But you go for the experience, the shop is so cute...More

Aesthetically nice tea shop. Breakfasts are overpriced however and don’t even include the cup of tea, ironically! A red haired girl served us who we found unfriendly and rude. Breakfast was nice however.

Cute and friendly. Step back in time in this prim tea shop. I have to say the cakes were delicious, but I found it a bit twee. Nice for a change!
