Six adults and three young children had a lovely time enjoying the afternoon tea at Cocoa Cabana. Both the adults and children were really well looked after. First Class.

    Gorgeous little chocolate shop housing the best afternoon tea I've ever had.
    The sandwiches were fresh on delicious bread, scones were light, brownies immense and the tiny patisserie were beautiful.

    Me and my partner had a lovely afternoon tea here on Easter weekend. The staff were very friendly and attentive throughout and the food was delicious. Our favourite was the scone with salted caramel sauce. They also offer a great drink selection and good range of goodies to take away. My only minor flaw would be that the cafe is very small and when there were other customers looking around at the chocolates it did get a bit cramped. All in all it was a great experience and something I would recommend to others.

    We had a wonderful afternoon tea for my Nannas 97th Birthday , Alex was so caring and thoughtful, the food was to die for, lovely finger sandwiches , beautiful scones and cream but the best was the chocolate, puddings, as much tea or coffee as you like in delicate china tea cups. the place is small friendly and a delight.
