I ordered a simple soup and a sandwich after flagging down someone to serve me. I was given the soup and then hand to wait for twenty minutes at my table for the sandwich. Admittedly they did replace my soup when I pointed out it was now cold, but an apology was not forthcoming. The soup was watery and the... More

Had leek and potato soup, bread was nice. Soup was so salty and greasy with what I'm guessing was tinned potato in the brown leek water. So bad we couldn't eat it so got a refund and went somewhere else. Staff didn't Sean concert concerned we were unhappy or even asked what the problem was, just gave us our money... More

I was in for breakfast this morning at 11am with a friend, we got to the cooked breakfast counter and couldn't wait as we were so hungry but then ended up very disappointed and will not be back for one. I was looking for a 7 piece breakfast and wanted bacon and fried egg but none of these were ready... More

We stopped in Dobbies, Monifieth for a snack en route to St Andrew’s. I had my birthday voucher for tea and cream scones for 2 to use. We shared a Coronation Chicken Ciabatta. It was rather disappointing – icy cold from sitting in a chiller, very hard ciabatta, and it wasn’t buttered, so the filling fell out very easily. The... More

We went for soup and bread snack lunch. The two soups on offer were both OK, and the choice of bread was excellent. Added marks for the bowls of croutons, creme fraiche and chopped parsley as self-serve garnishes. But the furnishings and ambience could do with a face lift. It doesn't look any different to when we first went some... More

We were here 3 years ago for afternoon tea and I couldn't praise the experience highly enough! Sadly the same cannot be said for lunch today. We decided to make a stop for lunch on our way up to Aberdeen having enjoyed the last visit. It was around 1pm and we did expect it to be busy however there were... More

At quieter times it is a far more enjoyable experience all round. Today was a bit hectic. Tables not cleared, very noisy and busy. A lot of angry people going around. ( customers ) Staff very please R even when under pressure from grumpy customers! Cakes great as usual and coffee superb. We just sat in a quieter corner and... More

We have been here a few times now, mainly because of the location. The food is not bad but pricy for what it is. The standard of cleanliness is not great. The tables are always sticky. The standard of service varies enormously, from rude and surly to pleasant and helpful with everything in between.

Staying in Dundee so popped on the 73 to meet a friend from uni at Dobbies. Had a good catch-up over a pot of tea and a delicious cream fruit scone. Also had a wander around and bought some early Christmas gifts to take back home with me.
