Bakery on Trumpington Street, famous for its Chelsea buns which are small, dense, and incredibly sticky and packed with flavour — so good they are exported to 7 continents (yes, including Antarctica). Best chocolate cake in Cambridge, plus they do rather wonderful wedding cakes. There's a cafe/restaurant attached, and they do savoury food too. Selection of cakes in the window is always tempting, and they made wonderful froggy buns for a friend's wedding.
It closed for nearly a year after a devastating fire in 1998. It closed again in February 2011, but reopened in August the same year.
