Spoiled for choice with the selection of chocolate goodies on offer in this delightful cafe. Opted for coffee and tiffin which was top notch! We sat outside with our dog and enjoyed the views from the bridge over the burn.

The wonderful aroma of chocolate hits you as soon as you open the door. We didn't have time for a coffee or cake but just had to run frantically round the shop selecting chocolate to take home. The staff were lovely - helpful about which chocolates were gluten-free and enthusiastic about the products. The shop is in a very picturesque... More

The chocolates and cakes on offer could give any continental chocolaterie in any European capital a run for their money. Busy and buzzing café not a place for quiet contemplation. Excellent coffee and drinks to hand plus tempting chocolates on display so that you don't leave empty handed. We wished there was mail order for celebration cakes but you can... More

whilst visiting family my granddaughter said I could not leave without something from here. Lovely range of cakes and biscuits as well as gifts to buy. We left with a few items to take home with us. The café/shop is very tired and run down but seems to be a busy enough little place that this may not matter. What... More

We stumbled upon this lovely coffee shop as we were about to start the John Buchan Way which goes from Peebles 13 miles over the hills to Broughton. Excellent coffee and a mouth watering array of goodies (patisseries and chocolates) which were probably not good for our cholestrol! Would really appreciated it if they had another coffee shop halfway along... More
