Finding ourselves with an hour left on the parking in Skipton on Saturday, we bobbed inside the ‘Cake ‘Ole ‘ , in the Craven Arcade for a quick spot of lunch. Having walked past the cafe a few times before with a look of longing, I was excited to finally take a look inside. Vibrant colours and quirky decor ( a zebra sticking out of the wall, I ask you 🙂 ) greeted us. The whole place is a feast for the eyes !
Everywhere you look there is something a little different, a little unusual , to make you smile. 🙂
Half vintage tea room/half Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory ~ the Cake’Ole has that kind of feeling about it. I wouldn’t have been surprised if Mr Wonka himself had poured the tea. 🙂 Instead we had some friendly waiting on staff.
This quirky cafe is most definatly about the cake…….but they do a mean panini too. Wil had the spicey cheese with red pepper ( he loved it) and I had a tuna and cheese filling. I spotted they had Mr Fitzpatricks cordials so I chose the rubarb & rosehip which is a firm fave of mine.
We could not leave without trying a mini cake each. 🙂 Wil sampled the Carrot cake and I had the red velvet. Don’t they look cute! Tasted heavenly too.
I will most certainly visit again next time I’m in Skipton. There’s lots of creative combinations of milkshakes to try out. Peanut butter and jelly anyone?.
