It is not often that you walk into a café, ask about the cakes, and find that you are holding a three way conversation with the owners of the café and the bakers of all the cakes on display. At Toast House in Ilkley, Natasha & Lisa know what every cake contains – hugely useful if you have particular dietary requirements and also fantastically interesting to other bakers – like Rock.
After listening to detailed descriptions of all the cakes – we choose to have the apple & almond with our coffee. As always, the coffee is fabulous (see previous visit), and one of the bakers has pulled off the trick of creating a cake that is both beautifully moist and yet still really light. Clever!
