Friendly staff, very helpful with local knowledge. Lovely lunch, homemade pie and salad and ciabatta and salad. Not huge portions, but enough for a light lunch. Nice crafty things also.

This is my favourite 'retreat' of all places! I have been coming here for over three years, it is the first stop I go to when I arrive in from Washington DC. When I am in town (for several months at a time); I come in daily to relax, listen to music of a different era, warm myself by the... More

Great food. I go here almost every week for lunch and love it. The food is always fresh and varied. Their soups are class. The atmosphere created is great and you can buy some really nice 'art'. The owners go out of their way to make all feel welcome. Just what you all need when visiting such a wonderful place... More

Decided to treat myself to an afternoon tea here - on a cold miserable afternoon. (Cost £7.50 pp) Loved it - nice fresh sandwiches, small scones and lovely dainty cakes - all washed down with a tea or coffee. Portions are not the biggest - if you are really hungry go for something more filling like the soup or sandwiches,... More

This is a great place if you have any dietary requirements! All of the food is delicious and lovingly prepared. I enjoyed the Greek platter, great quality coffee and gluten free goodness!! There is lots of lovely art to look at and even buy and there is a gift shop attached with lovely unique stuff.

We visited this lovely coffee shop on our way to Pitlochry. We made a special journey to Crieff to visit the Red Squirrel because having visited once before we knew it offered lovely food. As on the previous occasion we were treated to good food by friendly efficient staff. We'll certainly be back.

This was our favourite coffee shop in Crieff. The staff were friendly, the coffee hot, the scones beautifully presented with small pieces of fruit and the décor unusual and interesting. Would recommend to those wanting a good coffee, tasty scones all served in a very pleasant environment.
