coffee

Standard coffee, but lets face it you're not hear for that

taste

Simply awesome! The Bakewell pudding is the traditional offering and our favourite, however their Bakewell tart (the one with icing) is also extremely delicious too

selection

Great selection of savoury and sweet treats, in addition to a full restaurant menu. In addition to the various Bakewell puddings served with ice cream or custard, you'll find a large cake menu (the coffee cake is great) and the usual savoury options, including sandwiches, quiche, brunch options and for those with smaller appetites the cyclist favourite, toasted teacake

Bakewell is a quintessential Peak District town and makes the perfect pitstop for a cycle in the Peaks (I can recommend heading past Chatsworth)

Having sampled all of the Bakewell pudding cafes in the popular tourist town of Bakewell (what a hardship!) we can conclude that this is most certainly the best!

The name says it all, if you want to sample a traditional (or modern for that matter) Bakewell pudding or tart, make this your destination. I don’t know what they do to those puddings but they are delicious… The restaurant claims to be the source of the first Bakewell pudding back in 1860 and still made using the same recipe!

As you can see from the photos, in addition to the original Bakewell pudding (we had the large!) they also offer the modern take of the Bakewell tart too with both served with either custard, cream or a mixture of both! Other sweet options include a wide range of other cakes (large slices and gluten free available), cream and afternoon teas and varying traybakes!

For those without a sweet tooth, there’s a large menu with everything from paninis, sandwiches (including a great fish finger), quiche, soup, burgers and breakfast options too – including the ‘Bakewell breakfast’ with award winning sausages and famous Derbyshire Oatcake.

There’s also a shop downstairs if you want to fill up your saddle bags for the ride home (or take it to work for that mid-afternoon lull).
