All Mine Cakes (By The Lake)
All Mine Cakes was named our Cafe of the Year 2020/21 but launched in 2013 from humble beginnings. Founder Hayley was a deputy sister at Nottingham’s Queens Medical Centre, but had a passion for baking. She took a Saturday job with Newfield Diary baking their cakes and taking on wholesale orders.
After quitting her nursing job, Hayley started a Friday cake club. Wanting everyone to enjoy her treats, she focused on gluten- and dairy-free bakes, creating her own delicious ‘free-from’ recipes.
Walking in Maythorne one day, Hayley spotted an old fishing hut. After a lot of work, she opened All Mine Cakes By The Lake in July 2018. The old fishing hut is now a beautiful, thriving tearoom next to a lake, moments from the Southwell Trail.
Their ethos is to source the freshest, best quality ingredients – local and seasonal where possible – to create a delicious and exciting menu. It includes all her award-winning cakes, seasonal favourites, new creations, coffee roasted by Nottingham’s 200 Degrees and Bird & Blend Tea.
A completely gluten-free zone, All Mine Cakes By The Lakes is delightfully decorated and the view across the fishing lake is dreamy. It’s enhanced by a huge heated parasol so you can enjoy al fresco dining while keeping toasty warm. Dogs are welcome. Check the website for opening hours.
