Whist exploring the beautiful town of Alnwick we found ourselves caught in a rain storm. At the time we had our very well behaved lurcher dog with us. As we looked around for shelter a Boots employee recommended we call into the Origami Café. What a brilliant suggestion. Judy welcomed us and our dog with a lovely smile and provided us with some stunning home made cakes and lovely cups of tea. When we came to leave the ladies in our party were presented with little examples of her origami. Needless to say our dog behaved herself by lying under our table as she would do at home. We were so thrilled that we returned the following two afternoons. One cake in particular that was so delicious was Judy's Raspberry Rose.

Well, it was actually a Raspberry Bakewell slice but it was absolutely delicious, not long out of the oven we were told. The pots of tea were a generous size, we easily got two cups of tea each out of them and unlike many tea shops we didn't have to ask for more milk.

Found this lovely quirky cafe via online search for a good independent coffee shop in Alnwick and we weren't disappointed at all! Very small and slightly tucked away but great coffee and delicious homemade cakes. Got chatting to the very friendly owner about her love for origami and came away with a cute little origami crane. A must if you're wanting a good place for coffee and cake in Alnwick and it really deserves to do well.

Found Origami via Google search on phone for good coffee shop in Alnwick. Great, intimate and super friendly venue, to enjoy a great coffee and paper folding.....a unique selling point to support the wide range of milkshakes and home made cakes available. A real first time venture into the catering business by the lovely lady owner who has created a very special environment.....despite being 60 years old, I was thrilled to receive my minature origami swan, which has made it home to Devon. The big chains are in the town - give them a miss and pop in to Origami.
