We enjoyed a great breakfast of scrambled eggs made to order to meet our specifications. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff were very friendly. We enjoyed great coffee too!

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. Manager even gave me a quick masterclass on how to poach eggs (as I had asked). The food was delicious. Definitely a hidden gem and well worth more than one visit.

Enjoyed our first visit to Tea and Cakes, friendly atmosphere, good choice of home baked cakes and scones, wide choice of drinks, the "Theatre Kitchen" can be a bit noisy at times as food is prepared.

Popped in with my parents for lunch during a shopping trip and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the food quality was excellent with the bread being baked on the premises.

I go to tea and cake with friends several times a week. They have a great selection and I almost always get soup, which is different every day. The staff are very friendly and always greet us. I definitely recommend.
