Saturday drive coffee stop

We had been driving for a couple of hours by the time we reached Forfar around 4pm and it seems that most other coffee shops are closing up at that time. Tiffin wasn't so that's where we went. The décor may be slightly dated but it's well kept and very welcoming. Along with our tea and coffee... read more

I'm new to the area so decided to try this cafe for a cuppa and a cake with a friend. It was super. The girls working there were so smiley and polite. The cakes were all homemade and tasted so good. I was so impressed I took my Mum back the next day for lunch. Good selection of meals on... More

We popped into Tiffins one Saturday morning; our first visit in quite some time. The décor is exactly the same as it was when it opened over ten years ago and is looking just a bit tired and worn now. However, it’s spotlessly clean – including the loos - and judging by the number of customers, still one of the... More

My friend and I visit this restaurant on a monthly basis for lunch or for coffee and cakes. The cakes are brilliant and lots to choice from. Would highly recommend.

This is a fine place to eat a light lunch, or even something more substantial. The owner and staff are exceptionally friendly and the food is good. If I have one complaint, and one only, it is that we never drink the coffee as it is not strong enough. Really lacking in taste. The tea however is excellent and full... More

By far the best Indian restaurant I have ever been, but in the whole of Scotland. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff. You could walk in at any time of the night, any day of the week and be greeted with the best service ever. The food is amazing and they will gladly adapt any dish to... More

Came across this café whilst visiting Forfar for the day. Slightly dated in appearance but clean and cosy with a good menu choice along with a nice selection of home baking. I had a baked potato with cheese and coleslaw my husband had an all day breakfast and my son ordered a hamburger with chips and spaghetti hoops. All dishes... More

Tiffin is a great coffee shop/ restaurant. Very clean and well presented, it is an ideal place to stop for a coffee, snack or meal. Plentiful and efficient staff serve good food and the relaxed atmosphere make it very pleasant and different from other eateries.
