Just what I needed

Lovely cafe right opposite the Abbey. Friendly owner who was willing to chat - especially as I happen to be in there in a lull period - just me and the owner. It could have been awkward - it wasn't. Had homemade soup and bread. I would have tried one of the homemade cakes had I not already had... read more

This small coffee shop is excellent. The service was great and so was the coffee. What impresses me most is my parents both visit this shop regularly and because my father is disabled and my mother is also in care the staff bring out their drinks as they arrive. They know them so well that they can anticipate the need... More

This is a lovely small café in the heart of Jedburgh adjacent to the ruined abbey. It is very small and the menu is limited but the food is excellent in quality, prices are very reasonable ensuring great value for money and the staff are efficient and friendly. On a nice day you can sit outside and look across to... More

Right opposite the ruined abbey. Quite small, very clean, good service and quality food. We had soup, bagel and cake - couldn`t be faulted.

Delightful little cafe that is more like dining at home with friends !!! Small menu that will cover all tastes from delicious freshly made soups and sandwiches to the most moist of chocolate cakes, nothing is to much trouble for this delightful couple. Dine inside or out but you won't be disappointed by what ever you choose or the price... More

Called in for a quick snack. Minestrone soup was heavy with vegetables and the crusty bread was fresh and crusty. We were surprised at the size of the cafe, only 12/13 places but only a few taken mid afternoon. Did not have time for sampling the other items on the menu. Maybe come again when in the area.

Love this place, the staff are so friendly and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Lovely home made soup and baking. Great place to sit with a nice coffee and cake and admire the Abbey.
