  • A lot of places are said to have great versions of things. The best steak, the best pies, the best coffee etc. They say this place has great gingerbread... Well they don't. I don't know what they are selling here, but I've had plenty of gingerbread, and this is not gingerbread! Whatever it really is, it's incredible. Buy three times as much as you think you need, it will be gone before you realize they tricked you with their "gingerbread". Thank God I don't live near this place, I'd be there every week and probably develop some issue from eating too much of it. Maybe this is what real gingerbread is and everyone else is lying. Even if you have to drive out of your way and only have time to run in quickly when you arrive, do it. Whatever this stuff is they sell, it's incredible......
  • I've bought gingerbread biscuits from this place and it tasted delicious. There was a massive queue outside from the shop, so it's a top selling business to people who like eating traditional gingerbread biscuits. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone, it's just gorgeous!
