called in to have a look around at the crafty stuff and noticed the cakes were gluten free - ALL of them! usually, there is only one choice of GF cake, so this was quite something. took 2 home for coeliac son who was made up - said they were delicious . really think you should advertise outside that you serve GF cakes as most places don't do them. sue
We went to skipton for the first time to experience a historical Yorkshire town and wanted to have a nice coffee and cake!! We saw your quirky outside area, which looked exciting and thought we would give your shop a try.We entered your shop and requested our order but your response was very rude and you refused to serve us due to only ordering two drinks and saying that 5 people only having two drinks was bad and rudely refused to serve us and said that we should go somewhere else. This wasn’t the welcome we where expecting to this lovely scenic town.We went to another cafe which far nicer than your experience that you gave us and will never return to your cafe again :)
My sister and I called in today for a cuppa and cake. We have been to JUST before and really like all of the quirky items for sale. We have bought a few items too , for both home and garden.
When we arrived we both wanted a toilet break before we settled down for tea and cake. I asked for directions. The proprietor? was really rude and asked if we would be staying for a drink and could we order, which we did (retrospectively I am really annoyed at myself for doing so, we should have walked out then - it was not just what she said but her body language) . Whilst she was preparing the drinks I said that of course we would not have just have expected to use the toilets. She said, "hmm well I've heard that before".
Perhaps the proprietor has had some bad experiences in the past but her attitude and delivery left a lot to be desired.
Also, there was a young trainee working with her and, for the short time we were there, we could hear her criticize his every move.
We won't be back again!
Shame - we had thought it was a good find and had recommended it to friends and family but will now make sure they know of our latest experience.
Love this shop! Went in for a coffee and cake with my friend and bought a load of unusual things, spent a fortune the both of us lol my friend bought a flamingo, so glad it came apart to transport lol wish i could order things online!
Excellent little quirky café/shop in Skipton. I has something I have never had before a dish of Nigerian Jollof rice. basically rice cooked in a load of vegetables ad herbs, filling and full of flavour! Had a gorgeous Bakewell cake to follow! Would recommend.
