Tart is a café and foodstore unlike any other on the Gloucester Road.

Everyone loves cake. Especially us. And there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned tart. We started with this in mind and have gradually shared our passion with thousands of you over the years. Perfect pastry pleases, so we stand for the best cakes and the best tarts – a simple ideal really.

We’re located on the renowned Gloucester Road – a hotbed of independently-minded shopkeepers and businesses – and we’re proud to be part of this uniquely vibrant community.

You can sip coffee and watch the world at our street tables, listen to some jazz (we like this as much as cake) in the café or host a lunch in our private dining room.

We’re totally obsessive when it comes to food being freshly made on the premises (we make our own baked beans, when we have the time), we’re a legendary venue for brunch and champagne afternoon tea, and we welcome children and families.

If you’d like outside catering, a private booking or a sensational cake, please just ask. We now offer cakes by mail order, for delivery nationwide. Please order online here.

Our foodstore has carefully selected delicatessen products, books about cake and baking, beautiful tea sets and crockery.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
