Would like to say a big thank you to Gillian for my lovely little cup of tea and orange jaffa cake in her new surroundings at Greyfriars Gardens in St Andrews. It was so relaxing and didn't want to come home.

This is a beautiful little tea and cake shop with a fab selection of tea's and very yummy cakes. I really like the format of choosing your own tea and taking it to the counter as well as getting to choose and serve the cake for yourself. I felt very at home here with lots to look at (with a...

Love Our Story! Huge selection of unique loose teas (everything from chai to literal rosebuds), incredible cakes, and great sandwiches. Sandwiches especially are much less expensive than in other local cafes, but they are some of my favorites in town. The staff are friendly and happy to take special orders if you have dietary restrictions, and now that they have... More

Our Story is a great place to get homemade cake, freshly made sandwiches and pick your fav from a selection of teas. It's a small, but inspirational place to grab something to eat and find out what's happening. The staff are knowledgeable and friendly.

Cozy living room where you are surrounded by the most unusual things and most extravagant teas. The best carrot cake in town!

Our Story is far and away one of the best places in St Andrews to spend an hour or an evening. The food and drink on offer is ethically sourced and local where possible. It is also delicious. Fresh sandwiches, speciality tea blends and home made cake. Contrary to a previous reviewer's opinion there is nothing pretentious about the concept... More

Went in with my Mum for lunch, and instantly fell in love with the warm and welcoming space. The sandwiches were great and I would recommend the courgette cake! Fantastic fresh brew loose tea - we were offered hot water top ups. I would definitely come back again.

This place is absolutely tiny and only has room for about 6 people to sit down (literally). It's just pretentious through and through - think hippies and slam poetry... Don't bother going here. There are many independent cafes in St Andrews that are far better.

Hi there, we are so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with us. We now seat around 20 people so hope that will solve the seating issues for some folks although we acknowledge it is less than ideal at present. Our enterprise has started in a tiny location because we're a social enterprise started by members of the community... More

This little restaurant ticked all the boxes. We hade a delicious sandwich and a succulent piece of homemade cake together with a pot of my favourite type of tea for a very reasonable price
