Most important request of the year – Sheffield Cake Establishments
My brother (PeterPoddy) is coming up to Yorkshire this weekend and I’m going to meet him in Sheffield – western/south western side (not the Peaks).
In order to lure him up North even more I need recommendations on the finest tea and cake shop in that area. (BTW it needs to have parking as I am driving the Millennium Volcon to meet him).
WARNING: Before you blithely reel off a list of potentials I must warn you that PeterPoddy is a cake professional. I don’t mean baking them, I mean eating them. His love for and consumption of cake is something most people can only admire/be astonished by/be scared of.
So it’s got to be good. The very best indeed.
No rubbish weird artisan cack (weird ingredients)
No dry boring slabs of misery.
While the tea could be seen as secondary, I would like to see the extra pot of hot water as should be the norm in Yorkshire.

If it’s the weekend and your criteria extends to the Western Approaches of the City/Peak District then I can really recommend ‘Jolly’s Catering’ (@JollysCateringCompany).
They have an old Citroen ‘H’ van that they park up at Curbar Gap – so plenty of parking. Although it can get busy if the weather is sunny!

pook – to be fair they did turn it around…. http://www.thestar.co.uk/our-towns-and-cities/sheffield/dramatic-turnaround-for-cafe-in-sheffield-which-was-rated-one-of-city-s-least-hygienic-1-8363560Posted 8 months agoJonEdwardsMember
Forge Bakehouse don’t really do “cake” per se. Pastries, yes, sausage rolls yes, donuts, yes, good coffee yes, but not much in the way of actual cake. Possibly a bit hipsterwanker too. (Awesome brekkies though)
Steel City Cakes are good for cake (funny old world!) massive selection of flavours, but mostly of the “sponge cake with icing” type. Big lumps though.
Colemans in Hathersage are pretty good (salted caramel is a personal favourite)
7 Hills Bakery and Perfectionary on Sharrow Vale Road are 2 more, but I’ve not visited either, so can’t vouch for quality.Posted 8 months ago
