A fantastic experience, we’d booked an outdoor table but on arrival we asked if we could be seated inside which they very kindly accommodated.
The desserts were out of this world, the signature cheesecake is an absolutely mind blowing experience, a must have!

Our afternoon at cakes and bubbles was such a treat for our wedding anniversary. We had chicken pieces and chips, followed by the 3 course menu with champagne. Everything was so cleverly made and presented. We would recommend this treat to anyone who enjoys a special dessert experience.

Such a lovely experience, ambience at Cakes &Bubbles lovely to sit on the sidewalk side in summer, with less crowds. Service was really lovely as was the food, dessert was amazing.
We had a mix of sweet and savory. Would definitely go again just to try the rest of the menu

Total letdown. We were really underwhelmed by the 3 desserts we tried which was extra disappointing given the price. Be warned if you do not want to drink, I have never felt so judged at a restaurant as by the female waitress when I asked for water and not alcohol.

Patisserie at its crowning glory! We had the taster menu and savoured 7 superb desserts experiencing layers of flavour develop in each. None of us felt over full. Superb! Would highly recommend it!

The restaurant was ok. The food was ok, too. Not to bad but nothing special either. The service was a let down. Not sure if it was because the waitress was new or anything else but she clearly hasn’t been trained properly. She doesn’t know the food on the menu well and did not trying to help us on ordering. I don’t like these places where they automatically added the service charges as I think it should be given based on the service not automatically added to our bill. Anyway it was ok, I think.

The initial host at the entrance was not welcoming or warm. We felt rushed during our time and not well catered to. The desserts were fine in presentation but disappointing in taste. I expected to be blown away given the reputation of Cakes & Bubbles and I was not.

Our visit has been postponed twice due to lockdowns, but it was very much worth the wait.
Everything was perfect and the cheesecake was next level, so light and creamy. 🤘

If ever you wondered whether you could have a 3 course desert meal and leave satiated without getting a sugar rush, the answer is absolutely. Cakes and bubbles’ set desert menu with champagne is must for all desert lovers. Highlights include the chocolate and strawberry marshmallow (not a marshmallow!) and the cheese cake with baron bigod cheese and a white chocolate / hazelnut coating. This was truly a treat for the palate and the eyes.
