Visited the establishment for coffee and cake. Whilst preparing the order, the waitress left the coffees to stand for a good few minutes before serving them. Instead she opted to take other customers orders and served them with their take away mugs before we could...receive our order. As a result, our coffees were served cold. Furthermore, asking for the coffees to be reheated seemed like a difficult task for the waitress. I hope that management could look into this matter for future reference.More

Very friendly atmosphere. Set in quite a vibey place with other eateries around. Ideal for a coffee morning with a friend

I met business associates here for a weekday coffee & croissant. Since it was chilly, we chose to sit inside. One has to place orders at the counter; it is then served at one’s table. We ordered coffees & croissants. The croissants were buttery and...flaky and the coffees were each served with a small, sweet nibble. We enjoyed a second cup each. The seating and atmosphere were welcoming and comfortable, the service was friendly and parking is available on site. Ideal for a meeting.More

A quick cuppa and a friendly catch up turned into an explosion of visual delight followed up by the most tasty cheesecake. I can recommend the traditional strawberry and the New York cheesecake. Don’t visit If you’re counting calories - Lol.

A waste of money and quality. Unfortunately sometime reputation may over-exceeded reality. Cake are old-taste, too sugary topping, nutty-daugh, and ice-crystals still inside. I've tried to explain the low quality but the workers seems non-tolerable to comments and only case for tips. Hope they improve....Coffee was fine (hope they could provide Stevia Sweetener instead of the cheap-ones).More

Not the 1st but the 4th time my wife and I have been treated to the most dismissive service. The staff look at you then ignore you until you beg to be served.

We visited the Château Gâteaux Patisserie in Cresta, however it could not be found on trip advisor, but I believe the food quality would be the same. After having a slice of Fudge Picasso the comments which followed included "best cake ever eaten" and "a...piece of art". Well worth the "taste sensation" and we will definitely be back to try more of the cakes!More

This little coffee shop is amazing. The little cakes look so tempting that it's so hard to resist. Service is poor. They do sell a variety of full cakes that can be kept in the freezer . Prices are a bit steep , but is...totally worth it.More

A simple restaurant serving the most gorgeous look and tasting cakes and pastries. Coffee is delicious to, but you come here for the cakes! You can also buy full frozen cakes pre-packed in polystryrene to take home and enjoy.

Scintillating treat at this immensely successful chain of 'patisserie' stores with delicacies which are truly melt in the mouth happiness from your first bite until your last. Try this... You'll never regret the splendor of their delicious treats.

Maybe its too much of a well kept secret, so I challenge anybody to come up with a more delicious breakfast bagel with lox, creme fraiche, capers, onions, and pickles - the works! Topped off with great coffee and you cannot go wrong! Previously I've...just had various cakes; the hazelnut chocolate fudge will knock your socks off!More

Great stop for a coffee and a slice of cake - all looks delectable - wanna eat them all - sliced and ready to eat. There is also a selection of frozen cakes that you can buy for home - all nicely packaged - wish...they would add a low carb range.More
