“Slow and poor service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

I have been to taste a few times purely for its convience as it is quite near where I live. The food is quite tasty and the coffee is decent. However the service is truly lacking. Always slow and not exactly a pleasant experience.

“Great ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014

A pleasant surprise - good espresso - and lemon drizzle cake - nice people - obviously a good place to work and chat because full of students only half of whom had open laptops. a pleasant and welcome surprise after the usual chain coffee offering in South Street.

“Quite good coffee, very slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Charming little coffee place, probably the best coffee in St Andrews (though this is not setting the bar very high...). My problem is the extreme slowness of the servers with the consequent unacceptable delays.

“Little Coffee Bar, Big Taste!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

Loved this little coffee bar - service was great, coffee and pastries were incredible and location was perfect, right across the street from our quaint hotel. This is a great place to jump into and out of the cold for tea or coffee.

“Best coffee in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Try the HOT and perfect, better-than-Paris croissants! My fav was the almond. Go early for hot! This small place has free Internet too.
