On spotting the sign, of coarse I had read many recommendations on Tripadvisor! I said to myself "that's got to be my reward after two hours rewarding shopping in the town of Peebles!!" Because of the delectable long list of coffee flavours - I asked the charming assistant to recommend to me a suitable new flavour. She chose "chai" -... More

We have just experienced the best hot chocolate we have tasted in our experience. Not too sweet but full of flavour - flavour choice was varied, we had one caramel and one orange. To top it off we had wonderful macaroons which again had a wide choice; husband had orange while I went for the whisky (why would I not?)
