Very small with a few seats on ground level and then about 10 up a few stairs. Lovely sarnies and toasties served with crisps and coleslaw, homemade soup & tasty cakes. Loads of different teas with some coffees. Not sure why door was propped open on a cold November morning but people downstairs looked as if they'd like it closed! Alice in Wonderland theme with tables covered with pages from books and relevant quotes and ornaments everywhere. NB no toilets More...
Ham and Cheese toastie was amazing and the coleslaw is gawgus. Clean and friendly too.
First time at the cafe with our dog and the staff couldn't be more friendly or helpful. Food was excellent and not over priced.
Fantastic spot for a cup of coffee. Really nice atmosphere and lovely decor, would definitely recommend to other coffee enthusiasts.
Cosy coffee joint, great service for a small place and I enjoyed the Lewis Carroll decor. Only bad point was the lack of bathroom facilities.
Interesting, but superb decor. Being a coffee connoisseur, I have frequented many a coffee place in Durham, but this might be my favourite!
Friendly Staff, beverages, also, friendly to the taste buds. Alice and Wonderland decor was interesting, especially when Rock n Roll star by Oasis was playing on the radio, but I'm all for that.
Small little Alice in Wonderland themed café, lovely pick me up after a long day of coffee tasting
Really friendly staff, nothing is too much trouble. Dog friendly - bowl of treats and water on arrival. Would definitely recommend.
Everything about this place is gorgeous - will definitely come again next time I'm in Durham.
Called in today had the best toastie ever and cakes are delicious lovely girls too x
Absolutely delightful place. A good range of gluten free options, not that we required them but worth a mention. Four of us opted for afternoon tea and we were not disappointed. Food was fresh and tasty. Tea was plentiful. Cakes were delicious. Staff were friendly and more than welcoming to our two dogs. In fact the tea rooms advertise outside that our furry friends will be very well looked after even down to doggy treat options on the menu which really lured us in. We were given a large bowl of fresh water and a bowl of doggy treats almost as soon as we were seated. We loved the attention to detail in the decor and the experience as a whole even down to ice cubes in our drinks in the shape of hearts, clubs, diamonds and spades. All in all we loved it. Well done and many thanks to all the staff. More...
visit here on a regular basis always good
Fantastic food friendly staff and dog friendly would highly recommend
Great gluten free cakes
New College Durham
Fresh tasty sandwiches, friendly staff Very enjoyable
Lovely food and drink, good service. The cream with the scone is excellent but would spread more easily if they had warmed the scone.
Mid afternoon on a Monday & had a choice of gluten-free cake Very nice gf cupcake & my partner enjoyed his Cherry Bakewell. Also had lactose free milk in my coffee, no extra cost & a lovely change from usual soya option! Lovely place. More...
Tempted in to this lovely coffee shop, excellent service, food, and drinks all reasonably priced. Small and pleasant surroundings, warning no public toilet facilities due to the age of building and health and safety requirements. Definitely recommend a visit
Very quaint place and lovely cup cakes
My wife and I were looking for something different and did not fancy heavy food ( burgers and the like) as we were eating out later. ....This little tea room appeared to fit what we were looking for and it did not disappoint....The food was excellent and the two girls who attended to our needs were lovely ....A little belter.....

The desserts are to die for especially the chocolate cake! The only problem is that the place is too small to go with a group of people.
Such a cute place with lovely staff and the nicest cupcakes!
A lovely cafe half way up the bank walking to Durham Cathedral. Food is of good quality, service is excellent, spotlessly clean and a good use of the limited space available. The only reason we have given four stars rather than five is due to the fact the establishment does not have a toilet and the nearby public toilets recommended by the staff are far from pleasant!

Delicious cupcakes! Visited time and again for a post-essay treat, great for meeting friends and so cosy. Would recommend the banoffee cupcakes especially. Does get quite busy on weekends.
Lovely local cafe. Not big but space utilised well. Gorgeously fresh made sandwiches, coffee and cakes.
Afternoon Tea a bargain for 2 at £14.50....stuffed.
