I've visited herea few times and, now I'm a local, I'll be in more often. Lovely staff and an open and welcoming cafe. Food is always tasty and well presented. My grand daughter is a force of nature but thanks to the relaxed staff and available toys, visits have always went without any major mishaps.

This café is short on ambience, appearing to be located in what seems like a small industrial unit. The welcome is good, the food tasty and well priced. Good coffee, but no wi-fi

The owner Susan is very friendly. The cakes are fresh and the helping generous. Be in early if you would like a cheese scone as they sell out far to early.

Delicious with excellent attention to detail. Nice salads to accompany sandwiches. No problem getting half portions for the children which came with age appropriate cutlery and cups. Nice tables available outside, inside couches were very comfortable. Fast and efficient service and we were made to feel very welcome.

We stopped off for a wander around Kelso and found this welcoming little cafe. Coffee and tea cakes with jam included. Large seating area with table service. The staff were most obliging and very well dressed in uniforms. There are toilets available. A large toy box was evident for the tiny tots and it seems all are welcome including muddy... More

It was a real wet day and the Hoot n Cat got a return visit. We were served by a lovely young girl who was very pleasant and took our order promptly it's table service here. Fruit scone was just as we like it and the Latte coffee went down a treat maybe getting a little expensive though.

We called in late morning on a visit to the Border country and were given a warm welcome at this place. The Border Tart - it's a cake not a person - is highly recommended. It's a bit like a pastry case filled with moist jammy Christmas cake. When we paid at the till, we told the cashier how good... More

Made a quick visit with my sister whilst on holiday in Northumberland. As we had eaten a big breakfast earlier we just wanted a small snack and ordered one cheese sandwich between us. I asked for 2 plates so we could share which is usually all we get. Not in the Hoot 'n' cat, they split the sandwich and gave... More
