Scones to die for

Best scones in the world, quality coffee, wifi, friendly staff and no profiteering. It's a gem and always a treat to return.

Good coffee and choice of cakes very busy so opted for a take away. Value for money compared to the larger coffee shops.

This is a great, wee cafe offering coffee, cake and more. Relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Well worth a visit and highly recommended!

We called as a group of 6 for breakfast, they have a great selection of bagels on the menu as well as other breakfast and lunch selections. We all had hot drinks and a variety of bagels costing £33. Staff are all very friendly and helpful, which leads to a great atmosphere.

Went a couple of times for coffee and tea. Good selection of drinks as well as hot and cold food, cakes. Pancakes were very good. Free Wi-Fi. Could get busy. Reasonable prices. Felt warm and cosy on a wet day. Nice on your own or with families. Students and lecturers obviously frequent it as well. Staff helpful.

Visited 3 times whilst visiting my daughter at the University. On ALL occasions the service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to help. Food was absolutely delicious- very fresh, hot and good quality. It's a very popular and busy cafe but service was quick and efficient. Will definitely be back on future visits... More

We enjoyed coffee, maltesers (delicious hot chocolate concoction), soup, scones here a couple different times in our four days in St. Andrews. Simply lovely. We would recommend this cafe highly. The view out the window and down to the water is a great memory, as well.

We had to trace the steps of William and Kate and sit in the same restaurant as they sat. It was delightful!

Visited with a friend who ordered pancakes while I ordered a wrap. My friend decided to then also add a wrap to her order - the waitress checked that my order should remain the same, which I confirmed it should. Half an hour later, my friend had finished her two courses and I was still waiting for my one. (Absurdly,... More
