“We read the menu at 11.50am & decided we’d come back for lunch & a shake after shopping. Our expectations were seriously met! 💜 best shakes in town!
Worth the wait & the price. Just gorgeous.”

“We had a fantastic time today celebrating my daughters 7th birthday with a lovely afternoon tea. Was so nice to give them a healthy and delicious lunch that they were all excited about, from the teapot and flower sandwiches to the cute bottles of squash this place is a hidden gem! It was hard to keep them in their seats as so much for the girls to look at…everything Alice and wonderland themed and so quaint! I couldn’t recommend highly enough, service was fantastic and staff went the extra mile to make it special. Love loved loved it! Thank you Izabela and staff at cardamon tea shop”

“Took my daughter here today for the Alice in Wonderland themed tea. Oh my goodness, what a gorgeous, special place I feel I’ve discovered. After walking up a busy street full of traffic I opened the door into a beautiful oasis of loveliness, it’s really quite magical, full of tea and Alice themed trinkets. The staff are so, so lovely and friendly. Food is yummy, I had a delicious toasted sandwich and some Assam tea while my 6 year old daughter had the Alice themed tea. She sat very quiet for the first 10 minutes, I think a bit in shock at this lovely place and everything in it. We will definitely be back!!!”

“Stumbled upon this place and fell in love. The tea selection is phenomenal . Try Russian Caravan delicious smokey flavour. Afternoon tea simply lovely. The place is undeniably delightful. The attention to detail really is amazing (light fittings made from teapots). The honey cake is so light the calories will never count! Booked a tea party for my 7 yr old and can’t wait! The owner is incredibly helpful and provides a chit chat and brief histories of the teas. Please give this place a try.”

It was amazing the staff are incredible and so friendly and it is the perfect spot to just relax and read a book with a nice cup of tea. Totally recommend and they have over 30 different tea and their afternoon tea is under £17.

What a gem of a tea shop! So much attention to detail, a wonderful menu, fabulous food and brilliant service. We went with our 3 year old daughter and she was thrilled to find a cute little childrens table and secret play area under the stairs! The food and drinks were lovely and very reasonably priced, we can’t wait to go back.

We loved this place so much that I think it will become our new favourite! Lovely place, lovely staff and all in all amazing experience and yummy cakes. My little girl enjoyed playing and sitting on the little people table! Great idea, I will make sure we come to one of your Sunday kids parties.
