I found a treat of a tea room style cafe in Maldon, Essex called Truly Scrumptious.
Here I enjoyed a huge piece of gluten free carrot cake.
They also do gluten free bread and tea cakes and at least one gluten free cake a day (and not forgetting the vast selection of jacket potatoes and other things on the menu we are able to enjoy.)
Teapots and teacups are everywhere in this oldy worldy style cafe and there is even a teapot/ teacup/ cakestand selection for sale in the wonky, creaky old room upstairs - it's a bit like a jumble sale of china!
Full of character this is a lovely little place to enjoy a gluten free treat.
