I stopped in at the bakery and bought a couple slices. Both were really nice. I also had a bite of a butter chicken pie which also was really nice. Staff were friendly too.

Nice sitting outside if the weather permits. Nice selection of cakes. The tea comes in a really small pot, enough for 1.5 cups at most. Coffee was average.

Don‘t go there at lunch time! We had to wait for half an hour for a coffee to come through. We reminded the waitress twice but nothing happened.

This is a quaint bakery but you must get there early. We were there at 2:00 p.m. and most of the items were sold. There are two parts and two entry points to this bakery.
