Haven't been in the area for a couple of years so was thrilled to find this little gem as stylish and fresh as ever. The owner appears to take pride in supporting British talent and was able to give provenance to everything I looked at....More

Right next to Spitalford graveyard doesn't sound like the spot you'd suggest for luxury elevenses and I have driven past it dozens of times wondering if it was ever open but.... There's plenty of room to park and when you go round to the entrance...More

Called in for drinks on the way to our campsite, very dissapointed to find cafe closed for refreshments as staff had not turned up.There were some very nice gifts but they were not what we wanted. Cafe should have said closed on the sign outside

Nice little cafe and shop with decent quality cakes etc. Be warned though their opening hours are very unpredictable and it seems frequently not to open at all.

We go this area once or twice a year and always go to Elaine's for coffee and cake as the cakes are always unusual especially the "chocolate and beetroot". There is also a very interesting gift shop attached.
