Shop Price Increases from 6th April
Travel cards are going up to £2 (currently £1.99) from 6th April due to increase in fees. All other products will remain the same price. This is the first product price increase we have made since we started 2 years ago.

Due to Royal Mail postage increases and increase in processing fees, our postage and packing cost will also be increasing from 6th April, all UK and international charges will increase by 10p (e.g UK postage between 1 and 6 travel cards will increase from £1 to £1.10, large letters (orders for wristbands, pens etc) will go from £1.30 to £1.40, small parcels (full sets of travel cards, multiple tote bags) will go from £4.20 to £4.30)

I love a cafe where you can walk in and not have to explain yourself, those cafes are few and far between though. While Marmalade isn't completely gluten free they are close to it and you really don't have to ask much, they completely get it and you really do a double take when they say all the cakes are gluten free.

Gluten free bacon sandwich

The menu marks what can be gluten free if it isn't already, and to be fair, pretty much all of can be adapted if it isn't gluten free. There are plenty of choices and the staff understand about Coeliac and are careful when it comes to cross contamination.

We only wanted a sandwich, we all opted for bacon sandwiches, and they explained they had measures in places to prevent cross contamination and the lady knew what was and wasn't gluten free except for the hot chocolate. I always throw a spanner in the works when I ask if hot chocolate is gluten free, I don't know why but some places just don't think to check hot chocolate, however it wasn't a problem, she happily went and checked and even checked if all the flake and marshmallows were ok (they all were).

Gluten free cake selection

The food didn't take long to come out and was really good, the sandwiches we lovely and hot and the bread was good, some places you just don't get good gluten free bread.

We couldn't resist the cakes on the display so just had to get some for later one, thankfully you can get them to take out as well as eat in, such a huge selection including cheesecakes! We had a few different ones between us, elderberry, a brownie and victoria sponge, we thought we'd save the cheesecake for another day! I tried a bit of all of them and they were all lovely and soft, I'm sure anyone not gluten free wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Marmalade is definitely worth a visit if you are in Chester, the food is good and pretty good priced, fab staff and have an array of gluten free foods on offer, even if you just go for cake and a brew you should give it a try.
