Miss Marmalades

Crewe is home to many exceptional eateries, but venture a little further afield and you’ll find the award-winning and very unique Miss Marmalades, a quirky vintage-style cafe in the heart of Nantwich.

Tucked away down Pepper Street, just a five minute walk from the Medieval church of St Mary’s and Nantwich Museum, Miss Marmalades is an independent coffee shop with a playful retro atmosphere. As well as serving fresh, homemade food, they also stock gifts and vintage clothing. If you’re visiting Nantwich for some retail therapy – the town is brimming with boutiques, antiques dealers and contemporary craft shops – then Miss Marmalades is the perfect pit stop.

Walking through the doors is a bit like stepping inside the mind of Willy Wonka. 70s wallpapered walls are adorned with knick knacks, antiquities and curiosities that could easily demand an entrance fee. Ridiculous mountainous desserts are whisked from counter to customer where they are met with wide eyes and open mouths, photographed from all angles and teased with long spoons. This is not the place to go if you’re calorie counting.

Miss Marmalades has built a reputation on their ‘freakshakes’; picture a milkshake showered in whipped cream and sprinkles, topped with a cinnamon fairground doughnut, more cream, wafer, chocolate sauce, and a bit more cream. On our visit we tried the Golden Oreo version topped with crumbled cookies and a cupcake. Now, that’s a freaking milkshake.

The savoury section of the menu almost seems incidental, but the signature roast veg, cheese and mustard mayo toastie is ideal comfort food. Calling from the counter are Kinder and Nutella stuffed brownies, gin and lemon cupcakes and jam muffinuts. Muffiwhats? You’ll have to visit to find out. There are milkshakes and there are freakshakes and we know which one brings us to the yard.
