Afternoon Tease

         is now closed for business.

The last 4 years have been crazy, exhilarating and amazing. I’d like to thank every single one of you who have crossed our threshold, without you we would not have existed or thrived. Your loyalty, friendship and love of cake has made this relentlessly crazy job and all the hardwork worth it.

Closing was a very big decision to make and not one I took lightly but although I am so proud of what we achieved at AT, I am ready for the next adventure. I most definitely have not exhausted my love of food but as yet haven’t decided which way it will take me next…you’ll have to watch this space.



(ps. if you’s like to read more about why I decided to close the cafe you can do so on my blog here)

I will also continue to share my love of good food and any future plans on…

    Now you are talking! A tea room?! With … cake! We will be your customers for sure! I am looking forward to the announcement of your opening.

    We’ve just moved near King St and I wondered why I couldn’t find a place to buy cake!! Can’t wait for you to open so I can bring my girls after school.

  4. Glad to have found you on “Independent Cambridge” and looking forward to what looks a very endearing business, but had to google your address 🙂 I know it’s all about the teasing, but maybe being slightly less mysterious would be better? All the best!

    Hi! Just wondering if you plan on having any vegan-friendly cakes or items on your menu? Would be great to see another cafe following the trend of Hot Numbers, The Brewhouse, Sticky Beaks etc by making vegan options available.

    I’ve just enjoyed a delicious slice of lemon drizzle cake with you. Thank you!

  7. Jo, I am so very excited for you! I’ve been following along (and happily eating your cakes around Cambridge) for a couple of years now, and I am so thrilled to see your café come to fruition. I paid my first (of many) visit a couple of weeks ago, and was instantly smitten (and your banana bread was just as good as I remember from Platelickers); it is so wonderful to have such a charming new café on the Cambridge scene. I will be back often!

    Easily the best coffee in Cambridge. No question.

    Dear Jo, I have heard a lot about your excellent Afternoon Tease cafe and I am looking forward to visiting soon. Will you be open over the Bank Holiday weekend? Thanks, Rod

    I wondered if there was space for 8 adults and 3 children to come in for brunch on Sunday at 10:30? I can’t seem to find a number for you.

    Many thanks

    • Hi Helen,

      I’m afraid we don’t take reservations. We are fairly ‘cosy’ however we do also have some outside seating and will do our best to fit you in when you arrive.
