    Best cream tea in Holborn. All cakes made in house. Staff very attentive. Only comment is that their coffee could be better and proper leaf tea would complete the experience

    Cute, little café - if you like cupcakes, this is probably a place for you. Excellent, friendly service but cupcakes a bit too sweet and big for my taste.

    The brownie is a bit crispy on the outside and soft, melty in the inside. Tastes absolutely divine on the first bite but finishing the whole would be too sweet. Love the rich red velvet cupcake there!
