  • This gingerbread has a very unique spicy flavor and the texture was crunchy but chewy at the same time. Not at all what I was expecting. Definitely a for sure stop while visiting this beautiful...

  • One of my favourite treats. The smell swirls deliciously around the corner of the little shop (no idea how worshippers manage to ignore the enticement through a whole service at St Oswald's church next door). Their are currently restrictions in place (as of Sept 2021) meaning only one customer/family in the shop at a time, but the wait is well worth it! Grab some and climb Helm Crag - it'll taste all the better. Grab some and wander round the Daffodil path behind. Yum.
  • A little slice of history, and a lot of slices of the stunning gingerbread. The shop is tiny, the smells are Devine and the experience is like transporting to the 1920’s, with the staff dressed aptly, and the decor befitting the theme. If your unable to visit here for yourself, order online. Absolutely worth every penny!!!
