This tea shop has now been redesigned with a new layout which makes it more spacious. The cakes are delicious and served on dainty china plates and tea cups.

I had often walked past and felt tempted by the cakes on offer. Last week I ventured inside at last and I'm so glad I did because the cakes, drinks etc were gorgeous and the young staff so friendly. Sadly though my first visit will be my last as they told me they are closing. I believe it will now... More

Good cake and coffee but very cramped. As a smoker I was annoyed that one could not smoke outside on the table in the street.

Called in for lunch and had a lovely panini which was nicely presented with crisps and a small side salad. The pot of tea with additional hot water was also most welcome. We also tried the orange cake, which was quite dry and bland, which was disappointing considering this establishment's main attraction is its cakes. It was also a shame... More
