Used to visit here quite often. Popped in for lunch today with my mother. It was awful. Baked potatoes tasteless, filling nasty but much worse was the reaction from the staff when I said it wasn't very pleasant and I couldn't eat any more. We were ignored! No-one apologized No-one came to remove my mothers plate, even though she was... More

Les Cygnes started as a handmade chocolatier, they still sell beautiful chocolates and give one away with a hot drink. It is basically a cafe, inside the Thistles Shopping Arcade, opposite Marks & Spencers. Fast service, lovely waitresses, many from eastern Europe but with perfect English, good choice of soups and meals, plus cakes to die for (death by chocolate... More

As I work away from home most of the time I seldom write reviews about places near my home town. I've popped in here the odd time for breakfast when in Stirling and thought maybe it was time to tell others what great cafe restaurant this is. It's bright and cheery but with a subtle continental undertone and the staff... More

I would also like to let you know that from October of last year Les Cygnes is now back under original management and the previous management team are no longer... More

We will always pop in here to refuel after a session in the shops. The food isn't fancy but its very tasty and great sized portions. The coffees and home made cakes are fantastic so it's always top of the list for a late lunch in the centre.

We love this place, food always great but it's the service that makes this restaraunt. Reasonably priced and a nice atmosphere. Outdoes many of the coffee shops in Stirling.
