Great view of the Abbey on a sunny day. Splendid scone with cream and jam. Tea and hot chocolate lovely. Service friendly and efficient. A very pleasant 45 minutes!

A nice little coffee shop in Jedburgh serving cakes and snacks. Tables outside too which is a nice touch.

Lovely friendly wee cafe, delicious food and great value for money. The cafe is literally across the road for the Abbey, so you get a lovely view whilst munching the scrummy cakes on offer :o) Will definitely go back when I'm in Jedburgh again.

The cafe has limited space but has been laid out well to accommodate guests as comfortably as possible. There is a wide selection of lunch options, including paninis, rolls, jacket potatoes, soup and sandwiches and everything is fresh. Staff were friendly and service excellent.

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
