Good hot chocolate

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.

The cafe is combined with a shop that sells amazing chocolates.Well worth a visit, but watch the... More

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 did not have time to pop in during our stay in Peebles but I made sure that a visit was on the cards on our way home from the Lake District .It was a visit well worth waiting for. The hot chocolate with marshmallows and fudge pieces was amazing and the cakes were to die for. This is a... More

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
