Afternoon tea at Cupcakes and Bubbles

FullSizeRender-4.jpgOne day I was out exploring Norwich and ended up outside the cutest little cafe ever called Cupcakes and Bubbles hidden away on Timber Hill.

The cafe itself has a small shop at the front selling lots of lovely treats from cards to candles and coffee to choctails but the best part is they have a range of dog friendly treats. The doggy popcorn was was the highlight for me but they also had an adorable selection of canine cupcakes from the barking bakery. If you have a dog and you’re in Norwich definitely stop by to pick them up some goodies!

Tracey took us to our seats and I cannot give her enough praise for what an amazing hostess she was. She was so unbelievably friendly and it made me feel like I was in the comfort of someones house as it was so cosy and welcoming. We started with a bottle of Prosecco (an interesting choice from Dan that led us to be walking around Wilkos rather tipsy at 4 in the afternoon) which was really yummy and then Tracey bought out our  plate of goodies. The finger sandwiches came in 4 different flavours and tasted really nice but the highlight for me were the scones. They were so delicious and you could really tell that they were made fresh on that day. Seeing as Christmas is fast approaching we were also given some mini mince pies to put us in the mood. Next there were cupcakes and brownies that smelt amazing but we just could not get round to eating them in one sitting. Tracey put them in a box for us to take away though so I am happily snuggled up in bed eating my chocolate and peppermint cupcake as I write this (Update – it is heavenly).

It was just what we needed, considering the temperature drop in Norwich at the moment, and really added to the cosy feeling that the whole place gave off.

If you’re in Norwich and looking for a place to escape the cold and have a snug cup of tea and a cake then I couldn’t recommend Cupcakes and Bubbles more! You can also pick up a cup of mulled wine or cider to go if you need a boost to get you through the Christmas shopping. I will definitely be retuning and it is now up there as one of my favourite places in Norwich.img_0843.jpg

Go and grab another cuppa on me, Em x

I grew up in a small English town just south of London with my parents and older brother. I was a very inquisitive child, with a love for dogs and a strong belief that I was a Disney character. None of that has changed, now I just have a greater appreciation for a good cup of tea (one sugar and a lil bit of milk) I am currently a second year graphic design student at Norwich University of the Arts and still learning my way through life. This blog is a chance for you to relax, grab a cup of tea and learn along with me.
