We visited this venue three times during a short stay in Buxton. The staff were very friendly and the lunch we had was delicious. Cakes were fantastic and coffee and tea fine. Easy to miss this venue but worth a try

Beautifully clean, well appointed tea rooms, with lovely homemade cakes, scones and a great afternoon tea menu. Outside tables are under an arcade and a great place to sit, and it's superbly located next to the Opera House and Pavilion Gardens.

Went for lunch, service was quick and friendly. Inside looked fantastic; more than what you should expect for British cafe. Food was nice and had a good selection, recommend the mars bar cheesecake.

Had a weekend in Buxton, went to No 6 for late afternoon eats, all well done, nice selection. Walking around the following morning, called again for coffee, similar. Central location, good ambience and service.

A very nice lunch. My husband and I are both gluten intolerant, so were impressed with the gluten free selection. We both had quiche with chips and salad, which was very tasty. Pleasant and efficient service. Nice bottle of merlot, too.

These are lovely tea rooms in the heart of this interesting spa town. There's a really good choice of light lunches, tea and cake. Service is excellent. There seemed to be a few demanding regulars, but the staff were really patient and professional. This must...More
