Popped in here as we were visiting next door. Friendly staff but very expensive cakes!! Although they were home made and there was a good variety, nearly £4 for an averaged sized cake is too expensive. Overall my visit was ok, but the price puts me off coming back. :)

This is a busy little place up the lane, coffee shop with the usual baking and sandwiches, fairly pricey for a small place but staff were friendly

We've eaten here many times over the years and usually take our small, well behaved dog so the dog-friendly room is really appreciated. Service and warmth of reception is indeed patchy but the cheerier young staff members and lovely baking have secured our loyalty and our many recommendations to friends and family. It was so sad therefore that having managed... More

Found this little cafe down towards the Cathedral. Small, basic and serving the usual for lunch. Although it was very busy it didn't take long for the service. It was pricey for what was delivered on the plates, no salad or anything to bulk out the sandwich/toastie, not worth the money charged. The staff were polite and friendly, one was... More

We called in here for afternoon tea, coffee and cakes. The place was exceedingly busy and we had to wait for a table. The staff were working very hard and when people left tables were cleared promptly. It is a smallish, fairly crowded environment, especially when full. The coffee was good and tea supplied in a teapot with integral strainer... More

Had coffe/tea and cake here today in this nice cafe in the beautiful town of Dunkeld. Cakes were delicious, however my husband ordered a regular latte which was tiny but very pricey considering how small it was. Lady behind the desk was very pleasant as were the other staff. Over £11 for two cakes and two drinks which seems a... More

I've been to this cafe a few times before and really liked it. I took my mum last year and she enjoyed it too and she's quite fussy! However, my most recent visit has left me feeling disappointed. I was alone and the cafe was busy. I understood that I would be asked to move tables when a smaller one... More

Waitresses wizzing around like whirlwinds. Cakes are to die for. The toasie was done under a grill not in a toaster, so might have been a liitle warmer, but tasty all the same.

I've visited this cafe on several occasions whilst touring around this part of Scotland and found the staff to be extremely helpful and very welcoming. It isn't the biggest place so you need to time your visit accordingly if you want to avoid the usual busy periods (e.g. lunchtime). The food has always been very good and the service quick... More

Description
Wooden tables with cast iron bases' painted chairs and a warm welcome.We pride ourselves in making great tea and coffee with all our staff being trained in how to make the perfect froth to grace the best triple scored coffee. Tea has been chosen to compliment the local water conditions.A fantastic selection of cakes, from light crisp and chewy meringues to light Victoria Sponges to Macaroons and Apple Pies with pastry to die for.... all made in our small but busy kitchen.We invite walkers in and if your best friend is a dog bring them too ...we have an outdoor area which is smoke free so at last we can sit outside and be able to assured that the table next to you will not be smoking. Closed on Tuesdays. Though we will be open throughout the year.
