A Local Independent Café  which is  just so Sweet. Once you enter you can literally smell the sweetness of the fresh cakes baked on site. The Team pride themselves on their cakes and presentation is absolutely key.  There are many cakes shops around but not many where they produce cakes with fresh cream as opposed to butter cream or sugar.  They are Tokyo-styled serving authentic Japanese dessert inspired by the French style Patisserie but in Hale.

You can sit it and enjoy their fabulous array of coffees and also Japanese green teas.  Their signature is the wobbly cheesecake which is heavenly and it does indeed wobble.  It is the texture of a soufflé and is so tasty and light and is surely a little piece of heaven.

The cakes are not as sweet as western Cakes but to be honest this was a good thing and the taste experience was superb.  Leon (front of shop) could explain about all the cakes, their ingredients which for special dietary needs was excellent and certainly knew his way round cake ingredients.

The small cakes can be eaten in or taken away and the team also make large cakes for celebrations such as weddings all bespoke and with them being light and fresh they are easy to eat after a wedding meal. They also do corporate events and orders for Trade Customers.
