Delicious cakes, very good coffee, friendly staff... We had such a nice coffee break! Timberlake is also a nice place, organic villa where you (specially the children) can have a pony ride!

When we arrived looking for post-lunch cake and coffee, all tables were occupied, including some large tables accommodating a single customer each. Several staff drifted back and forth past the four of us, completely ignoring us. So we asked someone to assist. She seemed nonplussed and a little reluctant to get involved but said she would ask someone else. The... More

Confused waitress, rude manager, out of ice cream and therefore out of speciality gourmet milkshakes....really not worth the effort...

Hello Elizabeth C. Thank you for the review, and bring this to our attention. Over the December/January season, we employed new staff which would explain some of the confusion from the waitress. Late into December we do experience some sort of stock problems as all of the suppliers close shop closer to New Years; which makes it difficult to accurately... More

People friendly but service is slow and a lot of items on menu not available. No vanilla ice cream, lemon cheesecake and chocolate brownies today.

Being English we like coffee and tea shops , so this one in the "organic" village was a find. We had a masterly lemon meringue milkshake, cheesecake to die for, and brownies with chocolate ice cream. And coffees. Very quick and happy service.

We had coffee and cake and they were very good. In fact I had to take mine home as the portions are very big. Coconut cake and carrot cake are definitely recommended.

We go to this little coffee shop quite often just for the most delicious cheese cake imaginable. The pies are also stuffed to the brim with meat. Had a juice there that they actually went out in the garden and plucked whatever they needed there and then. Wonderful. This quaint place is part of the Timberlake Village and they specialize...

This place was so good we went several times! If you have little ones it's just perfect. Cool play area for them to run around and also one for older kids. The smoothie and scrambled eggs went down a treat with our little one and we enjoyed the quiches and variety of sandwiches. The deli was great too to stock... More
