Lovely small cafe. It's very nice to seat on a table outside on a sunny day for breakfast. Nice friendly staff and good quality food

I'm starting to lose count if the number of times I've eaten at Bijou. We keep going back because of the quality of food and the friendliness of service. The menu changes monthly too which keeps us coming back for more. Last night's dinner was another winner - a twist on sticky toffee pork belly & a good old fashioned... More

Was here a few weeks back and came by this place by chance, as we were hungry and needed a drink. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and served quickly, we were told that the kitchen would be closing soon so we quickly ordered and the food came out very promptly. The place looks like a wee cafe but... More

The lady there was very nice and friendly. We had a scottish breakfest - haggis, eggs, beans, toasts.... it was delicious. There is a nice atmosphere with great music. I enjoyed Frank Sinatra´s songs for breakfest :-) Great place to eat!

Booked Bijou for dinner for friends. I've been loads for brekkie, lunch, coffee but only once for dinner before. Party of 9 and everyone enjoyed their starters, mains and desserts. The food was absolutely lovely to look at and to eat. Everyone was well impressed and I have been recommending it ever since. Will definitely be going back for more!... More

What the hell are you doing wasting time reading reviews on Trip Advisor? If you have any sense you'll get down to Bijou and try The Leither for breakfast! Best breakfast around

Its been a while since we were here but this place just gets better and better. Really good ambience on a Saturday night and the place was full with customers who hadn't booked being turned away at the door. The menu is leaner than before but there is a seasonal special menu too. All the food our party had was... More
