“In the mood for sweets? The BEST cupcake you'll ever eat! Recently featured on TV for their amazing variety of flavors - even gluten free variations. In the mood for something different and fresh for lunch? Frost Me Sweet also gives you a large menu to choose from. My recommendation? Eat your dessert first!!!”

Lunch buffet is great value and I can recommend the Thali dinner option with your choice of curry. Tip: If you want your Vindaloo properly spicy, tell your wait staff you want it Indian hot, not American hot...”
