cute little cafe

This is our second time here and won't be our last. It is a tiny place with very few tables but both times we managed to get squeezed in. This time I had a salad which was very good and my husband a sandwich which was also good. The cakes look excellent but unfortunately we were in a rush! It... read more

I'm sitting eating some of the most delicious and tastiest cakes that I've had in a long while and I just feel that I had to share this with everyone. We all need a treat and the best ones are those we secretly give to ourself. Le Cerise is one of my secret treat to myself, it's like my spa... More

I had a cup of tea in the cafe with a sandwich to take away for lunch later. Tea was good; nice and strong which is how I like it. The sandwich was delicious; full of flavour and packed full of clearly good quality ingredients. The service was really good, with friendly and efficient staff who were helpful and chatty.... More

Go here once a week for takeaway lunch. Staff are lovely and food is made up while you wait. There is a wonderful selection of food, cakes and drinks. The strawberry tarts are the best I have ever tasted. However there can be quite a wait especially for coffee and at bust times

I see that I reviewed La Cerise in 2012. I have been back a few times since then as I like their soup, but service is always slow but when I popped in today it was back to a new low. I waited for at least 5 minutes, 2 people were working behind the counter (no idead what they were... More

There are few cafés in the area and La Cerise have good business. Their food is good, but service is real let down. Considering the number of staff who are serving, and that most orders are simple, or even ready, I find it difficult to comprehend why the average wait for your food is at least five minutes! The staff... More

We have gone in la Cerise many times in the past. We knew their coffee and pastries were really good. We went there on Saturday morning and smell of fat was terrible. When we left our clothes had the smell of 'all day breakfasts' for three hours. Shame, because la Cerise was an oasis of taste.

Been meaning to come here for ages and finally made it. Nice coffee and tempting array of cakes (we shared the Baileys one .. very yummy). Will come back and try another soon.

We stopped in here recently for lunch, ordering the haggis and sweet potato lattice; it was a really interesting combination, which I enjoyed a lot. They serve great coffee, I didn’t have anything else, however the cakes looked divine, one of my friends had the strawberry tartlet, which he really enjoyed. The food displays are beautiful and so inviting with... More
