Popped in on way through Crieff. Very friendly service. Lovely and cosy tables and chairs . Woodburning stove. Red pepper soap and crusty bread was delicious. Cappuccino strong and creamy - just right. White sauvignon - perfect. Would definitely call in again. Thankyou.

Nice little tearoom on Crieff high street, not sure if we caught them on a bad day but the service was very poor, waited a good half hour for a coffee and a hot chocolate, both of which were very nice I have to say....More

What a charming little cafe and gift shop. A comfortable seat beside a log fire, a nice range of hot drinks and snacks and friendly service from the two members of staff we met. A very enjoyable visit. Recommended.
