    Did some afternoon tea. Great welcome and really good cupcakes and sandwiches. We could even take the leftovers with us!

    Scones, macaroons, cupcakes, the staff

    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

    Solid afternoon tea set. Great scone and red velvet cupcake (even for this red velvet curmudgeon). Nice staff, too.

    Original duffin with jam

    Excellent cinnamon buns

  • Irene R.

    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.

    Amazing afternoon tea in a lovely little cafè.

    Tea and scones

  • Jack D.

    The scones made me float into heaven.

    Jack Davis · February 9, 2015
  • Nicole T.

    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!

    Nicole Tsui · November 17, 2014
  • Mark A.

    Very very tempting cupcakes. Great coffee. Friendly staff.

    Mark Ashworth · November 14, 2014
  • Duane B.

    Try the Duffin (donut + muffin)

    Duane Brown · October 29, 2014
  • Cherie K.

    Hidden away from the bustling streets of Holborn, a great selection of cupcakes and teas at reasonable prices. Make a booking because the place is rather small! Good opening hours until 8pm

  • Torben S.

    Cupcakes are perfect. Love the cakes and salads also.

    Afternoon tea was filling and delicious. All thr desserts were amazing and the scones with clotted cream and jam were scrumptious.

    Laura Sohn · September 18, 2014
  • Jessica E.

    Decent price for afternoon tea. Kind of a sugar rush, though. The scones were brilliant!

    Carrot cake slice FTW!!! Lovely and cozy place which I absolutely love. Get the cookbook whilst you are here!!

  • Catherine W.

    just get the scone deal. otherwise, too expensive $$$

    Catherine Wu · July 24, 2014
  • Alix D.

    If you can't finish your enormous afternoon tea (most probably). Ask for a take away pack and enjoy the delicious scones, cupcakes and brownies later!

    Alix De Grez · July 11, 2014
  • Kristina P.

    cupcakes are okay, carrot cake is one of the best I've tried, so much cream cheese between the layers and not too sweet. Nice scones too.

    Kristina Pham · July 7, 2014
  • Tom B.

    Amazing cupcakes with some of the best icing I've ever had!

    Tom Burns · June 25, 2014

    Great cakes. Red velvet cake or peanut butter cheesecake are amazing! Salads are quite overpriced. Stick to the sweet treats.

    Excellent! The peanut butter slice is Devine! The scones and jam lovely texture..£19 not too bad

  • Sara F.

    Amazing selection of cupcakes and nice teas. Would be nicer if they served the tea in dainty china cups rather than bog standard IKEA style teacups. Good tea always tastes much better from bone china

    The cupcakes are delicious, but the special is not active, they do not know anything about it in store
