The cakes and chocolates were incredible. Favourite was the flourless orange cake. Visited twice in two days. Will definitely be back again!

Popped in for a snack whilst in Peebles. Had a lovely hot chocolate, at a reasonable price, and a cake. Both were very tasty and the drink was lovely and hot right till the end. Good selection of drinks, cakes and chocolates. The staff were friendly and helpful. Worth a try.

This cafe is an ideal place to relax after a walk along the River Tweed in this lovely old Scottish Borders town. The quality of the drinks, the cakes and the service is first class right across the board

We called in for a warm drink and ended up sharing a beautiful cake whilst drinking a hot chocolate and a capuccino. The cafe has a choice of dozens of beautiful cakes, patisserie and chocolates. Staff were well trained and charming. A tribute to the charms of Peebles

Great place to stop and get a coffee or hot chocolate, and one of their great desserts. Not all of Scotland or the UK seems to get it when it come to chocolate chip cookies. These folks do! Great little coffee and desert place.
