Lovely cafe & bookshop

Lovely cafe in Jedburgh with good view of the Abbey as the name would suggest! The food was very good- fresh and tasty and a nice menu. Staff were also pleasant.

Nice hot food (which is great to have in this very rainy :) place).Tasty. Diverse. Good coffee. Staff is nice and you have a good view of the Abbey. It's a good spot on your way up to Edinburgh. On the pics: -Mozzarella Panini -Tuna melt Panini -Mocha

We found this cafe after visiting the abbey, which was just opposite. Our choice of food was excellent served by very friendly staff. The icing on the cake was the home made ginger cake, made by one of the staff, which I can really recommend. Thank you to all the staff for service second to none!

This little cafe opposite the abbey is a lovely place to sit outside and while away some minutes with a coffee, in the sunshine. Situated a couple of minutes walk from a number of free car parks it's well worth the stop.
