Once Upon A Tart – Let them eat cake

I found this rather lovely place when I was out and about in Merchant City. The cheery colourful interior was the draw for me but, holy moly, what a range of cakes they have on display – all homemade.

Their coffee is served in decent-sized mugs and they’ve also got a selection of specialist teas. The choices for breakfast include porridge, pancakes and bagels; toasties and ciabattas are available with a range of fillings throughout the day.
