“The best coffee you’ll have today…”
Coffee always tastes better with cake…
All our food is made to order by our trained culinary team…
WINES & BEERS
We’re also licensed to sell bottled beers and wines…
We use our own sneaky blend of 3 different arabica and robusta coffee beans, ethically sourced from India, Brazil & Peru, to create an outstanding espresso – then our Baristas work their magic to prepare the best coffee you’ll have today..
We use whole milk in all our coffees, just ‘cos we believe it’s the best flavour!
If, like our co-founder Mat, you prefer alternatives, we have semi, skinny, soya or oat milk available at no extra cost – please let us know when you order…

And how annoying is it to pay good money, for tightwad portions of average cake?
You can’t beat a great big slab of cake with your favourite coffee or tea. Made with fresh ingredients and no added nasties, Mum’s cakes are a throwback to days gone by.
Mum’s cakes are made in our own pastry kitchens at Newark, headed up by executive chef Warren Jones. Originally made by Mat & Liz’s mum, they’re based on her own recipes, which have been fine tuned and tweaked by Warren and his team into the cakes you see today.
Here’s a selection of the cakes we have on offer over the week. We bake in small batches, which means different cakes are c coming in to the chiller every day.
