Yet again another delicious lunch with coffee aplenty

My friend booked a table and we spent a very pleasant time. We started about 11.30 and stayed till well past 2pm. Service was friendly and curteous. We felt relaxed and chose items off the menu and specials board as we wished. Once coffee is ordered and served your cup is then replenished as you... read more

Anytime we visit Kelso we always go here for lunch. There is a nice menu and the food does not disappoint.

Popped in for coffee and cake with friends. Good coffee and good selection of home made cakes. Service a little slow.

Always a delightful atmosphere, staff welcoming and very friendly. Food is lovely, tasty and fresh. Extension at the side allowing extra table with children's toys nearby. Lighting is warm and cosy giving a nice relaxing environment

limited outdoor table space but plenty inside. Busy because the food was good and reasonably priced. Good coffee, plenty of cakes and goodies. Several tables booked for midweek lunch so it must be good. Will go again.

Popped in here for coffee while waiting for a bus - we had an hour. It wasn't particularly busy. Lots of empty tables and adequate staff for them. Shown to seat and it all seemed nice, and clean and pleasant. Unfortunately that was the end of it. We waited for somebody to take our order or even acknowledge that we... More

A big thank you to all the staff who provided us with a great tasty lunch. the sandwiches, soup, panini's, jacket potatoes where all great & well presented. They went out of their way to look after us & the service was quick & efficient - not an easy task when you have 19 hungry cyclists on your hands.
