My husband researched that this place was great for kids, clearly not babies however! Prams are not allowed in. The women seemed to expect that i would leave my pram unattended out on the pavement in the rain. Not likely, and they could have been...More

Time to spill the beans on 'spill the beans.' Had been in here before and didn't think the service was great, but decided to give it another try anyway. Came in with my wife, but the older lady behind the counter ignored us to speak...More

I must start by saying that the tea and cake were both perfectly nice . However, the cafe area itself was filthy . Not the kind of dirt that happens after a busy day , but this was dirt which has clearly accumulated over a...More

We enjoyed an excellent light lunch. The toasties were of good quality but the excellent rating is for the delicious cakes. The atmosphere in the cafe is very comfortable which is in no short measure due to the friendly staff.

We made the mistake of coming here for lunch rather than cake and coffee. The lunch here is very standard English lunch of toasted sandwiches and baked potatoes. We were looking for something a little more substantial. The upside was that we had plenty of...More

We had lunch here while we were visiting Dunkeld. Lovely little cafe. Food was very good. Cakes looked amazing and the girl who served us was one of the nicest waitresses we have come across on our travels.

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.
