Just wish we had come here when we first arrived in Aberfeldy. It's got lots of atmosphere, soups are tasty and filling, cakes are a wow and it's very reasonable. There is lots going on between the bookshop and the furniture side of this shop...More

This is obviously a popular café but we couldn't understand why. The menu was pretentious and limited. We settled on parmesan-crusted chicken with cashew(?) nut pesto roll. It was tiny and at £6.75, very expensive for what it was. The crowd at other tables seemed...More

Lovely wee cafe. Nice outside seating area. Food is good and fresh. We shared a soup and had a seeded filled roll each. It was very nice. We also had a choc fudge cake which was yummy. It's not the cheapest for what it is,...More

Stopped here for lunch whilst browsing the wonderful bookshop. Had some really good homemade soup and bread (gluten-free oatcakes too). Nice atmosphere, service a little slow but wasn't in a rush. Will definitely visit again.

Lunch after a morning outdoors. Quirky bookshop with amazing range of stock. Soup was hearty with homemade bread. Really tasty and barely left room for desert. Service was unhurried and although busy they didn't rush you. Range of cakes including gluten free.

A wee gem of a place, cafe within the bookshop. Excellent coffees and wide range of specialist teas. Very tasty soups and sandwiches. Well worth a visit if only to browse the books and music.
