Children are made to feel very welcome and there is a really enticing menu of delicious hot chocolates and seasonal drinks with sprinkles and toppings for big and litte ones! There is a great choice for vegetarians and vegans as well as meat eaters and dogs are very welcome with dog treats on offer. The menu changes seasonally and the specials on offer add nice variety for regular visitors. An absolute must visit!

Really loved this place. Parked up at the top of the trail in Hayfield (which is outrageously expensive by the way - find a space on the street) & walked... read more down to the cafe for tea & cake. Absolute treat! Clear day so we sat outside with the pram, wouldn’t have fit it inside as it’s very cosy so bear this in mind if you’re visiting and not planning on sitting outside. So full of quirk & character. Looking forward to returning.

What a gem this place is. Friendly staff, a warm welcome and lovely home cooked food. Quiche and salad take away box was a lunch treat. The ginger and orange... read more tiffin ( difficult choice from so many gorgeous cakes) was the most heavenly dessert. Hidden away next to the sett valley trail it’s well worth seeking it out.

When we bought our new house, we were delighted to find ourselves 5minutes walk from this fabulous cafe. Jo uses coffee from Peak Bean (the local roastery), bacon & sausage... read more from Kemp's butchers in Hayfield and always gives her local suppliers a nod on her menus. Her specials are excellent and her massive breakfast menu - which is served all day - has something for meaties, vegetarians & vegans.
Cakes are stupendously super. I always buy extra to take home!

We have visited several times since August which was then our first time.
Lovely, friendly staff that serves excellent, locally sourced food & drinks. Wide & varied menu... read more to suit each palate, also a delightful range of homemade cakes along with locally sourced ice cream. Plenty of outdoor seating & a few tables inside, dog friendly & a spotless toilet facility. Love the doggy pictures & birdsong playing in the toilet.
So glad we have found this cafe a great little gem & you can get a mug of Yorkshire tea & listen to Radio 2 in the background....what’s not to like, keep up the excellent work.

We stopped off for lunch whilst walking the Sett Valley Trail from New Mills to Hayfield, and waited a few minutes for one of the few outdoor tables (it was... read more quite busy on a nice Sunday afternoon). There is a very wide choice of menu and our lunch was very tasty, with good portions and reasonably priced. It is worth noting that this cafe shuts at 2pm so make sure you arrive in time!
My only grumble was that we were asked to take all the packaging that the food had been served in, for Covid safety reasons. I think a business should dispose of the rubbish it generates, not burden nearby bins (or worse, litter in the countryside) and a simple sack for customers to place rubbish in would not present a risk to staff.

This is our go to place for a lovely relaxing weekend brunch/lunch/early afternoon snack. Cute little cafe with great selection of specials and interesting breakfast options (shatshuka- Tunisian tomato based... read more dish with poached eggs- yummy!) plus all the normal sandwich/paninis but with the addition of homemade coleslaw. Locally blended coffee, locally sourced eggs, locally sourced ice cream, locally sourced meat, freshly baked cakes (some made in house and some purchased from a cake maker locally)... Plenty of gravy bones for your canine friends- dogs are made very welcome by the Owner.
Busy around typical lunch periods so to avoid the rush go a bit earlier or a bit later.
The new management have really turned around this little cafe. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
