Great coffee and cakes, eclectic interesting shopping!

Top quality coffee, mocha and cakes here, sampled on a number of occasions. An eclectic mix of shopping, crafts, gardening items, all very tasteful and not the sort of thing you'd find in a high-street shop.

We just loved this place. On visits to Embleton we need to pop in to the cemetery anyway to see how great-grandda and Uncle Clark are getting on, so visiting Eleanor's Byre for coffee, cake and maybe a touch of shopping is pretty much irresistible. It's absolutely gorgeous. The staff are lovely, the coffee is nice but, my goodness, the... More

We almost missed this delightful 'old Byre' the signing was so subtle! What a delightful place for coffee or tea and home made goodies - at tea time a selection of cakes all made with vegetables - and ours were delicious. They carry a wide selection of teas and good coffee. I was able to have my favourite Lapsang Souchong!... More

In the area again and called in for our first of many visits this holiday. Coffee and cake delicious as always. Ended up buying quite a few things, no surprise there then! Just full of lovely things as always. Lots of different lines since we last visited, all gorgeous and all saying buy me. Very friendly and pleasant staff, look... More

Good to call in here for a cuppa and totally fabulous cake. We sit outside as we have two dogs. Friendly service. Nice niknaks for sale inside the cafe.

This is a pleasant coffee shop with seating inside and out but it is also a gift shop full of individual and numerous crafts, photo frames, wooden signs with canny sayings on. Lots to look at. Coffee good and it has a couple of gluten free items as well as homemade cakes.

Noticed this place as I was driving passed earlier in the day and had seen the signs nearby. Lovely little shop and tea room with a couple of tables outside I just had tea and a slice of home made cake which was lovely. The menu was fault limited but some interesting cake choices e.g Chocolate and Beetroot slice and... More

My wife and i visited here recently for a coffee stop.There are some nice gift ideas and the setting is quite nice.However there are only two tables and neither of us found the cakes anything special.Coffee was good. You cannot call this a restaurant however so just be aware cakes is what is on offer,nothing else.

This is not a restaurant! Our second visit (the first was about four years ago). I'd describe it as an "up market" giftshop, with coffee, teas and cake available. It wouldn't look out of place in a posh part of London. Lots of little and not so little things to buy, but don't expect "bargain basement" prices. Hard to judge... More

Very disappointed after reading all these good reviews. In fairness we didn't stay to have coffee as planned - but the gift shop was very small and extremely expensive. But the 2 pigs outside are delightful!
