This business no longer exists. However, a new deli opens in that premises any day now! The new deli will be very welcome. All great towns should have one!

Travelled to Ampthill specially to eat here but seems to no longer be trading. Shop was entirely empty so went to Cake stand and Crumb instead.

Consistently good food for lunch, amazing cakes. Unbelievable selection of cook ware & the cake tin hire is brilliant value (thanks for the cooking instructions!). Definitely one of my “go to” cafes.

The lemon gluten free flapjacks are exceptional and the staff very friendly. Great select of cheeses on deli counter and perfect chocolate figs for Christmas are a must.
