Wonderful fresh bread tops the list of quality foods including large slabs of chocolate brownie, good coffee, relaxed and intimate surroundings.

have been here several times so can happily recommend such treats as the bakers eggs, the cakes always tick the boxes and my son who is rather fussy when it comes to food will happily devour the flavour of the day foccacia a very casual and friendly atmosphere with nice nibbles and an unhurried experience always ticks the boxes for...

As you walk in the door your nose is hit by the most delicious smells, a mixture of real bread (not sliced polystyrene in plastic) and home baked cakes. You sit upstairs on real old fashioned tractor seats that your backside settles into and are actually very comfortable. There are a couple of tables with "normal" seats. Otherwise there is... More

We had them warm with lashings of butter and I can honestly say they were delightful. They were so filling we couldn't manage a cake as well, so took two pieces away with us. These... More

Love the welcome, layout and of course the food and coffee. Thank you. This cafe bakery is set on its own at the top of the high street. Outside impressions can be deceptive, so step inside and enjoy the break from Costa or Starbucks. The cakes and breads are baked before you and laid out for you to smell and... More
