Café


Freshly prepared.
Thoughtfully sourced.

The Angela Reed Café is located in the very heart of our Saffron Walden shop. It’s light, airy, and relaxed atmosphere makes lunchtimes and shopping-breaks all the more pleasurable.


We serve light lunches and fabulous cakes and sweets. We make everything here (except the locally made sourdough bread) and only source local and fresh produce. Our own-brand coffee has been developed and roasted in Dunmow, our fish is fresh off the boats from Suffolk and our vegetables are grown just down the road!

This is a little gem of a cafe in a tucked away location in beautiful Saffron Walden. There is something wonderfully decadent about being able to indulge in a little retail therapy and pausing to enjoy a superb coffee or delicious lunch with a glass. Our next visit can't come soon enough.

The Angela Reed Cafe is a wonderful retreat in central Saffron Walden. The cafe offers a wonderful range of teas and the home-blended coffee is superb. We treated ourselves to the 'Angela Reed Cream Tea' for two and it was delectable! Would highly recommend a visit.

We cook almost everything here from scratch using only fresh, thoughtfully sourced and seasonal ingredients.
