We were staying at Crieff hydro and took a walk into town. Stopped at this wee gem of a place for a luxury hot chocolate and scone and jam. There was a roaring log burning fire, the staff were lovely and welcoming, the hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows was to die for. Defo worth a visit!

Quite a small but popular cafe.Good value value food well presented and very enjoyable.I suspect our order was mislaid because I did see a look of dismay by staff followed by a flurry of activity and an assurance our food would be served'shortly'!It was indeed and I really enjoyed my lunch

This unusual cafe makes a nice change to the run of the mill tea shops and coffee lounges. It has a quirky yet homely decor with a very welcoming open fire. The menu is decent and they also gave a small range of giftware for sale.

We popped in here for a snack on a rainy visit to Crieff and found the place to be really warm and welcoming. Fire on and plenty of pretty stuff on the walls to have a look at or buy. Lovely individual safe with a nice feel to it; the way my family likes its coffee stops!

I came here with my partner for brunch last week. I ordered scrambled egg on toast with beans and my partner had a cheese and onion sandwich. My eggs were extremely bland and the beans I'd ordered as extra came in a separate pot with about one spoonful inside. I wasn't asked what bread I'd like but it came out... More

This is a great option if you are looking for a coffee in Crieff. There are a couple of settees and comfy chairs to relax in with your drink. It was busy each time I visited and it seems popular with the locals which is always a good sign. Staff were very friendly too and pointed me in the right... More
