Anke grew up under communist regime in East Germany, moved to and lived in Ireland after the German wall came down; then moved to the UK, the coastline of Essex, where 'she finally arrived home' opening her (then little) tea & coffee lounge in 2013.
9 years later in 2022, we find ourselves in a beautiful Victorian building five-times the size of the little shop in Westcliff-on-Sea.
Having established a strong status in the community with a very loyal customer base, we are the centre in the hearts of Westcliff and beyond.
Anke's is the place where we come together for.......
Anke's passion for baking and creating and her love for bringing people together, makes Anke's a very special place.
