Staff were so friendly and the cakes, just amazing to look at and even better to taste! We attended the afternoon tea baking lesson and learned so much and had fun. Took home lots of cakes to share.... Maybe!

If you are in the area and are able to call to Coco Blacks for coffee and cake do it ! The selection of cakes and variety is the best I've seen! I wish I could take this shop back to Lancashire. The chilli chocolate cake was delicious. I didn't taste the handmade chocolates and it was too hot to... More

This is a must-visit in Peebles! The tastiest most indulgent cakes have tasted in a long time. Coffee, unfortunately, was a bit disappointing.

It was welcoming with a pleasant atmosphere and the service was good and the squares of luscious high caloried cake to accompany the hot chocolate were to die for and we hope to return!

I had an almond and peach tart which didn't taste particularly good and the pastry was hard not crisp. We found the price... More

We felt welcome and it isn't table service. Coffee was lovely and strong and at good temperature. The 'treats' are to die for and reasonably priced. No high chairs available though.
