Buxton Pudding Emporium
Buxton Pudding Emporium is a quaint and quirky café connected to a fabulous pudding shop and deli. The owners are passionate about hand-made food, and the service is attentive and friendly.
Décor comprises intriguing artwork and antiques. The ceiling lights are retro cooking pans, and the wooden tables and chairs are also vintage. The dark green walls evoke the feel of an old apothecary.
This style fits the story, as the Emporium opened in autumn 2017 to showcase the original Buxton Pudding along with other cakes, puddings and sweet treats. The Buxton Pudding’s reinvention came about when the owners found an old recipe book in an attic and wanted to recreate the historical dessert. After several attempts, they found that adding extra fruit and butter significantly enhanced the taste!
The menu options are simple but well done: sharing platters of local produce, a toasted sandwich range, salads and a little bit of what you fancy. We opted for the ham, cheese, pastrami & pickle toaster with soft drinks and cake. We were delighted with our choices and fuller than we’d expected. All the bread is homemade, which is always a good sign. Service is personable and friendly, coming with a smile.
To settle up, you go into the deli next door to be tempted again by cheeses, cakes, puddings, drinks and more.
Buxton Pudding Emporium is a charming eatery and deli with an equally compelling story behind it. If you’re in Buxton, be sure to visit.
