After hearing great reviews about the marshmallow lady and seeing so many great photos I decided to try it out for myself. I ordered a iced hot chocolate unfortunately they were out of marshmallow fluff so I had vanilla marshmallows instead which were also toasted. I was originally disappointed as I saw they used yazoo milk for their milkshake but they did add melted chocolate and ice to it which was a nice addition however I do feel it would be better if they made the milkshake from scratch. The toasted marshmallows on top were absolutely amazing but I did find the bags of marshmallows to be a little on the expensive side. The staff were lovely but the service was a little slow especially as I was the only customer in at the time. Overall still a great experience and I would recommend I just feel there are a few improvements that could be made

The marshmallow milkshakes are absolutely TO DIE FOR. The actual marshmallows are like no other I've tried - and if you don't know how good a marshmallow can be, then you absolutely have to give this little kitchen and cafe a visit. They have samples too, so you can try before you buy - if you're not sure what an Irn Bru marshmallow tastes like (aka insane). All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to The Marshmallow Lady, the super friendly and lovely staff made the experience all the better, and it was really fascinating to find out that the marshmallows are seriously all made by one woman, and everything is done in store!

Best hot chocolate ever! The smores were unreal! I went for churro smores on top of my hot chocolate and omg it was amazing. The cocoa was rich and comforting and the marshmallows were honestly the best I've ever tasted. The decor is absolutely adorable and I love the little kawaii style marshmallows on the cup sleeves. There were also tasters to try ...which guaranteed I'm coming back to have those on top of cocoa next time. Also the owner is delightful and chatty. Would recommend

I ordered 3 bags of mallows online and can honestly say they were the worst marshmallows i have ever had. They all had a really grainy, gritty texture which made them very unpleasant. I did send a message via the website as i thought maybe i just got a bad batch but i didn't get a response. Waste of money only 1 or 2 of each bag were eaten, the rest were put in the bin.

We walked out of our way to find the shop and couldn’t be more glad that we did. Firstly, the marshmallows and hot chocolate are DELICIOUS. Left with a massive bagful and could’ve easily bought more. Secondly, what a lovely woman! Friendly, generous with samples and great to stop and chat to. If I lived closer, I’d be in every day.

I placed quite an expensive order for a variety of marshmallows from the Marshmallow Lady at Burgh Bakes and ordered the Whisky ones as a surprise for my Glaswegian partner. I was really disappointed when the order arrived and the Whisky had been replaced by a second packet of another type, with no note or explanation in the box or by email either. I emailed Nicole and she told me that it was too humid to make whisky ones but if I paid for another order she would add the missing packet of whisky ones to it. I explained that I didn't think it was very fair or good customer service to force me to place a second order just to get the ones I had already paid for. Silence since.

Some of the best marshmallows I've ever had - light, airy, and they literally melt in your mouth. Crazy, inventive flavours that really translate well - it doesn't just say it tastes of rose, it really does! Irn Bru, s'mores, you name it....the flavours shine.

Want to make your friends on Instagram jealous while treating yourself to a not-really-bad-for-you-at-all snack? You won't regret stopping here!

Saw some lovely looking photos on Instagram and thought I should try this out for myself as I have a very sweet tooth, I messaged on Instagram and got a prompt response that they were open and a suggestion of what to order.
Myself and my 11 year old each had the s’mores sundae and he had a toasted marshmallow milkshake and I had the frozen hot chocolate . Everything was amazingly good! Very tasty and the frozen hot choc was so refreshing on the hot day we were there, the girl serving was very friendly and efficient . I enjoyed looking round at the products I bought my parents two packets of marshmallows but I was too full to think of any for myself so will save that for next time ! Having the taster samples is good as I am someone who might buy 5 packets of something if I like it. Also worth mentioning I think the prices are very reasonable for the quality and taste of the treats so I will most definitely be returning even though it’s the other side of town for me it took us about 1hr and 40mins walk and good for burning off the calories :)

I'm just reading through older Tripadvisor reviews and wanted to say thank you SO much, this was one of the nicest :-) Sometimes when I do certain drinks people aren't too sure if it's going to be good (frozen hot chocolate isn't the most common thing in Scotland :P) But I persevere because I know what's delicious (it's the only thing I know!!) so thank you for trying & loving it. Also thanks for the compliments on staff & samples, I also agree and it's so lovely to hear wonderful feedback! Also if you live in the UK or EU you can now order online!!! from a brand spanking new website. Search Marshmallow Lady on Google :) Nicole x

This place is amazing. I went there for a milkshake to try and make a bad day at least a little better - instead I got a fantastic milkshake, great coffee, the fluffiest, most delicious Marshmallows and a lots of laughter. The staff is simply wonderful. My only regret is that I was too full to try the maple bacon marshmallows, but there is always next time.
