Cheesecake Heaven

I've had the pleasure of eating here on a number of occasions, and I can honestly say that it does the best cheesecake in Angus, always a favourite with many delicious flavours and the the portion size, wow lets just say just have a coffee and cheesecake as you will be stuffed after that

Food is great and I would have given it a 5 if cheese scones, my favourite, were available! The staff are friendly and efficient.

Very friendly atmosphere & varied menu. The lasagne is very nice & recommended. We go at least once a month. The only downside is that they don't always have available what you want to eat, a couple of times they have ran out of what we'd wanted. Nice place to go for a coffe or bit of lunch!....

Homely, spotlessly clean, friendly caring staff, beautifully cooked fresh food! Great choice of breakfasts customised to your taste. This is an oasis of a restaurant in Carnoustie. We had Sunday brunch, great choice of food and top ups of hot drinks. Wish I had been able to find room for some of their delicious looking tray bakes and cakes! There... More
