I had been dreaming of the miele coffee here since my last visit two years ago and I wasn't disappointed. Lunch was simply delicious eaten outside in the summer sun. Soup delicious. Service lovely.

What are groovy little cafe we discovered and had lunch at! The soup was lovely and the sandwiches superb but what was best about this place was the aspect out onto the open area and the flowing stream! A great place to just stop at and chill!

I have been here before and I go because of the amazing tea that they give you. The choice is fabulous and the cake it well worth the eating!

We didn't have a meal here but the coffee was really great. I like mine strong and it was all of that. Service was great, as was the ambience. Nice seating outdoors or in and the famous bookshop upstairs is also worth a visit. In a good off-road location with parking. Not a place to miss on a visit to... More

Had a welcome break from travelling and took afternoon tea and cakes here, while trying to find somewhere to stay in the area. It's in a great location attached to the famous award winning Watermill bookshop. The outside seating area is peaceful and very civilised and the drinks and cakes are presented and served to a very high standard. I... More

This wonderful bookshop has a small café beneath that we went to for a light lunch. Tasty rolls were supplemented by a selection of unusual teas. On a lovely sunny day it was a delight.

Arrived one Sunday afternoon with two relatives. Beautiful day and the cafe was shown off to its best. Around 8 tables with a nice outlook over Aberfeldy. Two young members of staff floating around but had to catch their attention for service. We had coffee and fruit loaf, coffee was fine at around £2.50 a cup but the fruit loaf... More

Visited with family. Lovely book shop with great kids section we visit every time we are in the area. Downstairs the cafe is lovely, very popular so can be busy. They do takeout coffee too which we do sometimes then walk down to the park close by with the kids. Good lunch menu too with soups and sandwiches.
