Tea-rrific tea rooms offer customers slice of heaven

The sweet taste of success is close for a couple whose tea room has been shortlisted in the finals of a prestigious food competition.

Love Grows, at Hollins Place, Hebden Bridge, has reached the finals of the deliciouslyorkshire Taste Awards in the Best Afternoon Tea category,

The cafe, owned by husband and wife team Moira and Mike Stedman, is a hidden gem in the town and offers customers a slice of heaven as soon as they walk in.

It’s not difficult to see why Love Grows has been shortlisted. In their afternoon tea, Mike and Moira offer a huge choice of delicious goodies, including 10 sandwich choices, four choices of speciality bread and eight cake choices, meaning there’s something for all to enjoy.

And the ethos of catering to all lies at the heart of the business. The couple pride themselves on their wide selection of gluten-free cakes and breads, so there’s no excuse for customers not to indulge in a sweet treat or two.

Those following a gluten-free diet can still enjoy a full afternoon tea, modified to their requirements.

Moira said: “We just wanted to provide quality food in a nice building. We would love to win the award, we’d be absolutely delighted and it would be confirmation that we are doing things right, as people tell us we are.

The winners will be crowned at an awards evening held at the Pavilions of Harrogate on October 15.
