Cakes Heaven: sweet treats to die for
Coffee shops and eating places are bit like buses it seems. You know how it is – you wait months and months and months for a new cafe/coffee shop/restaurant and then several turn up at once. Today’s turn-up is Cakes Heaven in Market Street – opposite the tented market. To be fair, it’s not, by all accounts, all that new – it’s just that I’ve managed not to notice it until recently.
Now I don’t personally have much of a sweet tooth – the cappuccino slice I sampled today was more than sweet enough for my palette and very light and fluffy it was too. But if you marvel at meringue, go crazy for coconut, cherish choux pastry and have an all-round passion for patisserie then this is the coffee shop for you. All the cakes are homemade and are available to eat in or to take away and to order. They also do party and wedding cakes to order. Check out their Facebook pages for pictures:
Chatting to another customer it seems they also do savoury meals and snacks of the Slovak variety so something to try another time for sure. And moreover – it’s all very, very reasonably priced: a decent Lavazza coffee for a mere £1! The homemade cappuccino slice I enjoyed was, I think, only £0.80. At prices like that, the sweet-toothed amongst you can get lost in a cake-based paradise on a regular basis.
