“Okay but a tourist trap”

Thorntons at The Coffee Shop
Ranked #8 of 10 Coffee & Tea in Bakewell
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 May 2018 via mobile

Great service very very welcoming but prices..... We paid over £10 for 2 drinks and 2 tea cakes. Average tasting coffee and the same with the tea cakes. Some other prices were very high. £5+ for a sandwich..... Great for oldies who want a natter not the best for people on a budget. Personally would not go back based on cost alone.

Hidden gem with nice home made pastry, sausage rolls and icecream. Nice coffee too. A must go when in Matlock Bath.

We decided to have an ice cream after a lovely walk in the surrounding area on a lovely sunny day.
I am afraid, but I will remember this ice-cream experience as one of the worst.

2 pound for a scoop of a discrete ice cream, that was hard as the stone despite the 25 degrees outside. The scoop was big as a teaspoon.
Basically, a ripoff.
At least you could try to be generous with the portions!
Other than that, the staff was nice and friendly.

All I really wanted was a coffee but ended up with a bacon sandwich as well. Such a shame as the owner was telling me it's up for sale and could end up as another charity shop.
Great coffee and very tasty sandwich 5
