Online Shop closed until further notice Read More...

Due to the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak in the UK we have taken the decision to temporally close our online shop effective immediately, 30th March 2020. Until now our shop has remained available, but the orders we have been receiving have been significantly lower than normal.

While we are just a small, home business between myself and my fiancé, we have decided to take this decision now in the hope that we can help to remove some of the unnecessary work put into the postal service here in the UK and around the world.

We hope to resume normal service as soon as possible when the situation begins to return to normal. We hope all our customers, both old and new remain safe in this worrying time.

I've visited Weymouth many times over the years, and this cafe has always been one of my favourites to go to. If I based this review on anything other than its gluten free aspect I'd be giving it 5 stars all the way, but on this occasion I just cannot do that.

The first thing you see when you walk in is the huge cake cabinet, filled with the biggest cakes you've seen... with one type missing; a gluten free one. Even if they had one plain homemade gluten free sponge I'd be a happy bunny, but no.

The place is always packed out as the view over Weymouth and Portland is an amazing one, and those people are more often than not having a slice of cake and a hot cuppa. As my parents eat their monstrous slices of chocolate fudge cake and Dorset apple cake, I just sit with my tea. Although I can't say they are completely oblivious to gluten free alternatives... right at the end of the counter full of cakes and biscuits, there is a small basket with some kind of cranberry tray bake, chocolate biscuits and some sort of cookie, none of which are homemade unfortunately.

I never ate a full meal here therefore I can't really comment on whether they are willing to adapt any of their meals, but when my mum asked the staff "do you do anything gluten free", they just indicated to their little basket...so I wouldn't hold up much hope.

But if you are in desperate need, at least they do something gluten free.
