Delicious Decadence

Delicious Decadence is a coffee shop and bakery where both tradition and modernity are valued as equally important, and this is reflected in what we do – from the classic Victoria Sponge to the wondrous Grasshopper Pie!

We believe in home baking, fresh food and fair pricing.

We offer a range of beautiful, freshly baked, homemade treats that are truly delicious and decadent! Plus yummy breakfasts, freshly prepared sandwiches of your choice, homemade soups, and light bites.

We want people to come to us to take a break from their busy lives and just enjoy a treat. On your own, with a friend, or in a group, we don’t mind, we just want you to be happy!

We aren’t just a coffee shop though, we also make celebration cakes to order and do outside catering – take a look at the appropriate pages on this website to find out more.

We now offer cupcake parties! Take a look at the page to find out more!

We look forward to seeing you all soon!

    Looking forward to seeing what your new shop will be like. You might want to consider opening on a Sunday, if only 1030-4 ish, and closing on another day instead. You have a lot of families and working people near you who might be around less during the week but ready for someone else to make the coffee at the weekend. Only really speaking for me, but it’s a thought. I’m sure I can’t be alone.

      Hi! Thank you for commenting, and for coming and taking a look at the website! It is really nice to hear from people in the area. I too have been thinking about my opening times and they may yet be revised. Having been down at the shop on a Sunday (while decorating etc.) I have noticed a lot of people moving around, which I wasn’t expecting to begin with. I am now working out whether to close on a Monday instead, and I would be interested in what you thought about this? I want to be a place that members of the community want to come to, so please let me know what might work best! Kate

    As a neighbour and after so many disappointments after Nikki & Mary left I hope YOU do succeed. Good Luck and very best wishes for success.

    I look forward to seeing your shop open, one thing I really liked about the shop that was there before this one was that it also had a different variety or drinks that you could not find in supermarkets, are you planning to do something similar?

  4. Toby says:

    Hi – I agree that opening on a sunday would be of benefit to the neighborhood, but more importantly to your profits. Sunday morning is hangover time which is exactly when people dont want to cook themselves. Good Luck

    Hello Kate

    I think you tried to ring me today when i was in a meeting and I can’t find the message if you left one? Assuming it was about the Hummingbird cake? If you let me have the shops phone number I will try to call you back or will call into the shop on Friday when i am off work.

    Hiya
    Are you licensed? I’m looking for somewhere to take my mam as part of her 50th birthday celebrations. She’s never had an afternoon tea before and wanted to make it even more special with prosecco or some kind of fizz?

    Thanks
    Ashley x

    • Kate says:

      Hi,

      We aren’t licensed I’m afraid but we are happy for people to bring their own alcohol and drink it, so if you wanted to book in and then bring a bottle with you that wouldn’t be a problem at all.

    Can you tell me if your cafe is dog friendly? We usually go to Cafe Nero or Cafe 1901 as they are both dog friendly but it would be nice to try your place as we often walk our dog around there…..thanks x

    • Kate says:

      Hi Joanne,

      I’m really sorry but we only allow assistance dogs inside the shop. It has been something we’ve thought about but on asking many of our customers what they thought about it, the majority said it wasn’t something they’d like. We do put tables and chairs out when the weather is nice and we have absolutely no problems with people sitting outside with their dogs. I hope we might see you at some point.

    Hi I was wondering if your wheelchair accessible as I’m in a powered wheelchair we’ve seen an offer on Groupon for afternoon tea that looks delicious

    Thank you Yvonne

        I just had to let you know how much myself and my friend Elaine enjoyed our afternoon tea on Saturday. It was exactly what is expected of an afternoon tea, it was well presented and tasted DELICIOUS.. It was plain to see while talking to you that you enjoy what you are doing and the young girl working with you was very pleasant. My only disappointment is that you are not nearer Durham where we live. Keep doing what you are doing as it was lovely Wendy p.s the triple chocolate cake was just as good as the afternoon tea

  9. JOANNE SLATER says:

    Do you think you might become a dog friendly cafe in the future? We have been to your cafe twice, but had to sit outside because we had the dog and the table was on a slant so things kept sliding off plus it was a windy day so it wasn’t a very relaxing cuppa. There are so many dog walkers around your area that it would be nice to have somewhere closeby to go for a coffee and food. What do you think? Cafe Nero, Costa and Cafe 1901 all welcome dogs….

  10. Joanne slater says:

    Thanks Kate. We have sat outside before with the dog but the table was unstable and the cups/plates kept sliding off the table so it wasn’t very enjoyable. Never mind….thanks anyway x

    Hi I’ve bought a groupon voucher for chocolate afternoon tea, could I please book for this Sunday (28th June) for 1pm it would be for 2 adults and 3 children, the children will be having food from the menu if that’s ok? Thank you.

    • Kate says:

      Hi Jacqueline,

      Thank you very much. I’m afraid the one day the shop is always closed is Monday. We are open Tuesday to Sunday and afternoon tea can be booked on any of those days if that is possible for you. Kate

  12. Carol Barnett says:

    Thanks,

    • Kate says:

      Hi Avril, I sent you an email but I’m not sure if you’ve received, so I will respond here also just to be sure! The number on the voucher is 01912854052, and that is our phone number, so you shouldn’t have any issues getting through to us on it. I can book you in for 3 people on Tuesday 1st March, what time would you like? Kate
