First coffee of the holiday

Found a bar stool as this was very busy - understandably so as the drinks we had and cakes were excellent.

I attended 2 classes at cocoa black and loved both! Ruth and the team made us feel so welcome and were brilliant teachers. I learnt so much in one day and can't wait to go back for another course. Everything we made was delicious as we're the cakes I bought in the shop. Ruth is a very talented lady and... More

We have a lovely coffee break here. The shop sells a great variety of coffees and hot chocolate drinks. The choice of cakes is huge and every one looks better than the rest. They also sell handmade chocolates and bags of treats which are not so expensive

The ice-cream here is sublime! This is the only Scottish outlet I know for Movenpick, the Swiss brand of elite ice-cream. They also have a huge array of mouth-watering cakes. Coffee is good too. These things alone make it a place of pilgrimage for me.

Yes think I have gone to chocolate heaven. Travelled with my husband and daughter for 40 miles just to have a coffee and slice of cake at this fantastic coffee shop. The selection is astounding, staff are wonderful. The place is spotless and very welcoming. I have never seen it empty. Go along and enjoy

Little cafe off the main drag. Oh, what a sweet smell on entering the shop. Didn't purchase anything, however. Was disappointed, thought that we were going to see the chocolates being made. That was the reason for the visit. Did think that £14 for a box of chocolates was a bit extreme
