Alice is alive and well, living in her wonderland.

Brewing delicately crafted coffee, artisan teas and baking sweet fantasies in her kitchen.


“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn't be. And what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?”


Alice had the right idea it seems – a world of her own. Here at Alice Nivens, owner operator Janet Alice strived to create 'a world of our own where we try our very hardest to find the best we can, as well as produce the most delectable that we can for others to enjoy'.

In this little space, elements of art and science are co-aligned, which results in consumables made carefully with love and care; under delicate tea cup lights and served with good ol’ fashioned hospitality. Daily, we think fumble around in the wee hours of the morning baking away, making fresh sandwiches, sweet and savoury snacks for visitors to take on their journey through the day. Buzzing around the teas and coffee, we mess about with the right amount of science and our senses to give you delicious fuel filled with aromas and other magical elements that excite the senses.

 So, be our guest and listen to the Cheshire cat purr into your ear ‘…only a few find the way, some don’t recognise it when they do…’ but once at Alice Nivens, you’ll never forget your experience down this peculiar rabbit hole.
