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

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.

What a find, unexpected in this little border town but well worth a visit. Bliss, heaven....... A chocoholics paradise! Wonderful hot chocolate and scrumptious baking. Lots of hand made chocolate gifts to take home. Not to be missed.

The tiny marshmallows would not even melt. I went to the counter to ask for a little more hot... More

Both are big chocolate lovers, both thought the dark hot chocolate was nothing special and not chocolate more milky, not decent chocolate. The cakes were nice and atmosphere was very relaxing.
