Nah! A lemon and blueberry cake so dry it crumbled, and a scone so dry you needed the tea to remove it from the roof of your mouth. Shame cos the food has usually been passable. Nay bother. We left in search of proper cake haha.

We have eaten twice here now. Both times the food has been fresh, tasty, well presented and served quickly and efficiently. There is a good menu selection with vegan and vegetarian options, a good range of homemade cakes and quality coffee. We will definitely visit again. This is not the cheapest cafe, but the quality is worth the price and... More

There were blankets on the chairs, water for the dogs and dog biscuits too. In our group we had two gluten intolerant... More

Delicious tea, coffee and cake stop on a 10 mile walk from Baslow via Curber and Froggarts Edge. Lovely service. Sat outside looking at the edge where we had walked earlier sipping on my tea gave me great satisfaction. Outdoor blankets were added bonus.

Stopped here at the weekend. An amazing menu with lots of Veggie and Vegan options. Was initially put off by the price (a little expensive) but the food was well worth it and looked and tasted beautiful. I had a Hummus, Olive and Sun Blushed Tomato Baguette which was massive, tasted rich and came with a beautiful side salad. Shall... More

Used this as a meeting place pre walk in the Peak District. Venue was rather crowded but we managed to find a seat and order. Unfortunately our order and was correct but not with a smile. The food was good and wholesome. Nice place just need to brush up customer skills

This cosy café has a really impressive menu and it's great to see an extensive range of vegan and gluten free dishes - which of course are excellent for everyone and the vegan dishes we had are highly recommended, very tasty and beautifully presented.

A friend and I had enjoyed a lovely visit to Chatsworth House to see the Christmas decorations. By lunchtime the eating places there were crowded, but my friend suggested a little place she knew nearby - and I was so pleased she had. The cafe is small and intimate, but full of flavour. There was plenty of choice on the... More

We had finished a walk in the area and were looking for a substantial late lunch and found it here. Food was excellent and very tasty with bottomless tea as well. We were tempted by the excellent cake selection after but as it was mid afternoon and dinner on the horizon we reluctantly decided against. Service really quick. It is... More
