Try the apple and cinnamon cake!

Have recently moved to the area and have used this cafe frequently. The service and food is always consistantly good. Kate is always friendly and welcoming and her cakes are too good to resist! The setting opposite the Abbey makes the whole experience memorable.

This is a great little cafe, with probably, half a dozen tables. Only called in for a warm drink but noted they had an interesting little lunchtime menu. This is a cafe, not a restaurant. We had a mocha and a hot chocolate with macaroons. All nicely served, hot and above a friendly atmosphere. Will call again when we're in... More

We stopped off in Jedburgh en route to Edinburgh and ate at this lovely cafe. It's spotlessly clean and so bright and airy inside. Great food selection and lots of choice of coffees, teas and soft drinks. The service was really friendly and the food was very tasty (decent portion sizes too). Would definitely return!

Firstly, may we apologise for the poor service you received. The day in question was extraordinarily busy for the time of year, as the polling station for the general election was just along the road. We are also training a new member of staff, so things were perhaps less slick than usual. When your order was received, Kate made your... More

Called in here today during a stop over on way back home after a weekend trip to Edinburgh. Such a great find. Food was delicious, especially the homemade cakes. Staff very pleasant and welcoming. We had our little girl with us who can often get fidgety so we're always a bit nervous when eating out but there were toys to... More

Stopped here and it cheered us all up, I had a mocha, Panini salad coleslaw chutney, and big piece of chocolate cake. Lovely food and a good price. Well done! if only there was a cafe like this open on Holly island the day before.

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 my... 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
