Cafe portion is now closed; still taking cake orders
Update March 31st 2015
Please note: the cafe has recently closed; bakery remains open for custom orders.
A cosy cafe in the middle of the Follet Road shopping strip, the Happy Little Tummies cafe is the perfect place to make little (and big!) tummies happy.
A range of allergen-free and organic cakes and treats are available for viewing in the pastry case; many made fresh to order. Happy Little Tummies prides themselves on using only natural and organic ingredients, colours, flavours and sweeteners, guaranteed free of those 'nasties', "your kids deserve it!" insists the founder and owner, Mel.
Mel has taken her love for baking and decorating cakes, and combined it with her passion for real, natural ingredients, to create Happy Little Tummies. Her boys were her inspiration, many years ago, weaning onto solid foods. Mel increasingly valued a whole food approach feeding her boys, avoiding processed foods and sticking to organics and naturals.
You could say that Happy Little Tummies is growing up like Mel's other inspiration, her boys: healthy, strong, and independent. What started as a bakery is taking baby steps and even long and strong strides towards becoming a cafe in its own right, with delicious burgers, felafels, gluten free pies, and more on offer daily.
