This café is on the main A49 but is easily missed as the driver is negotiating an "S"-bend & a low bridge as well as busy trunk road traffic. But if you can turn in at the sign, you are rewarded with a decent sized car park (free). The place is light & airy with large windows & a variety of table seating. There is also a veranda with tables & chairs where you can eat & drink al fresco if preferred.
We chose cappuccino, ginger beer & a lovely heart-shaped chocolate cake plus a speciality "Affogato" which is unmissable if you like ice cream, strong coffee & a measure of Amaretto which one self mixes at the table.

The most wondeful cafe I have ever been too. I have been there twice now for both honey cake and avo brownie. Genuinely amazing ,

After having a long walk along the Canal you can park the car and go to the Lockgate.
A friendly and warm welcome for us and the dog who was welcome inside. Lovely homemade cakes with an extensive choice of Leaf Tea and Ground Coffee. We were so impressed with the Teapot that not only infused but actually poured the contents into the cup! We ordered one for home from Laura! Cakes were delicious and well priced and we even got free biscuits for Winter the dog. Back soon!
