Went here twice. 1st time service was horrific, and we only had drinks, took almost 30 minutes to get the bill. Staff more interested in sitting down nattering inside. 2nd time had food, and key ingredients were missing. We weren't informed before the food came,...More

Delicious cakes, very good coffee, friendly staff... We had such a nice coffee break! Timberlake is also a nice place, organic villa where you (specially the children) can have a pony ride!

When we arrived looking for post-lunch cake and coffee, all tables were occupied, including some large tables accommodating a single customer each. Several staff drifted back and forth past the four of us, completely ignoring us. So we asked someone to assist. She seemed nonplussed...More

Hello Elizabeth C. Thank you for the review, and bring this to our attention. Over the December/January season, we employed new staff which would explain some of the confusion from the waitress. Late into December we do experience some sort of stock problems as all...More

People friendly but service is slow and a lot of items on menu not available. No vanilla ice cream, lemon cheesecake and chocolate brownies today.

Being English we like coffee and tea shops , so this one in the "organic" village was a find. We had a masterly lemon meringue milkshake, cheesecake to die for, and brownies with chocolate ice cream. And coffees. Very quick and happy service.

We had coffee and cake and they were very good. In fact I had to take mine home as the portions are very big. Coconut cake and carrot cake are definitely recommended.

We popped in for coffe and cake mid morning. Both the chocolate and the carrot cake were fresh and tasted homemade. A real treat.
