BIG dilemma! What to choose??! <3

Wow! You could spend a good half hour just in front of their patisserie trying to choose! This is no ordinary cake shop. Tucked away in this picturesque town is a little gem! So pleased that we found this place. Would certainly stop here again - even just to work my way through those delights!

If your looking for coffee and cake in Peebles, look no further than here. The cakes are exceptional and very reasonably priced considering how good they are. If you have a trip to Peebles planned make this one of the first places to visit, you won't be disappointed.

An excellent little café with a stunning range of cakes. The hot chocolate is superb. Not cheap but really worth a visit

Just popped in for a hot chocolate on our way home. Didn't realise you could so many different hot chocolates. I opted for the bog standard milk chocolate but it was by no means bog standard. Made with real chocolate- delicious. Had a milk chocolate Florentine too mmmm

Visited twice during my short visit to Peebles, cafe is spotless and staff very friendly and helpful. Fabulous hot chocolate, chocolate eclairs where yummy. Cakes looked great and lots to choose from. Also do sandwiches. I will definitely be back should I visit Peebles again.

the chocolate is quite excellent and the range of cakes/pastries/drinks is so extensive that you can try a differnt combination every day of the week; it just needs a bit more attention to detail on shop organisation...
