The CakeShed offers a fantastic range of cakes (including excellent pains au raisins - my specialist subject!) and savouries, along with some of TW’s best coffee.

We enjoyed a relaxed brunch bright in this bright setting recently and left feeling happy and well looked after.

There’s a generous amount of seating and great views of the Pantiles too. On a good day you can sit outside and watch the TW world go by.

Highly recommended!

(Only downside if you have accessibility issues is that the loo is downstairs. I appreciate this can’t perhaps be helped - the Pantiles is historic so its shops are compact and hard to alter. But worth bearing in mind if you are disabled.)

Came in today for a coffee and a catch up with my old friend and have to say what a lovely place. We both were greeted by a charming young lady at the till who was more than happy to accommodate. We decided to go for a coronation chicken sandwich and shared the bakewell sponge. (Both were delightful) We also had cappuccino and flat white which tasted amazing and the young man with the tattoo on his arm who we forgot to ask for his name was very glad to hear it.
Amazing service and food and we can’t recommend it enough!

This cafe is in a great location - but sadly there were a few things that let it down.

Cakes, although nice - were a little dry. We sat downstairs, and the smell of the toilet was rather unpleasant and overpowering.

Staff seemed stessed and rushed off of their feet.

We are visiting locally and were exploring the Pantilles and decided to stop. While there were several breakfast/coffee places, the is one was packed inside and outside with people and we decided to stop here. Several cakes and some pastries were there and were fresh. Good coffee and tea and obviously very popular with locals.
