Ate here for two nights with a large varied well cooked and properly seasoned meal on each visit. Excellent home made cheesecake.We ate on the outside patio which is small but has a much quieter sitting area than the Mill Inn next door. Only down side is they don't take card payment or have real ale!

Luncheon on way through to coast found us in this delightful café. Perched on the banks of the Dee and giving nice views of the river and station areas. Good attentive service with well prepared food. Good portion sizes. Not spacious but cosy. Found it ideal for the lunch break we had. Would revisit.

We had an absolutely fantastic time here. Lovely food, the menu was great...good selection & very friendly staff. We didn't realise when we first went in that the building went right along the side of the river, which meant we had a lovely view over the water. Would highly recommend, open 9am-9pm.

A lovely cosy outlook, warm and friendly. Great service from smiling waitress, the food portions were big and a very comprehensive list of items. If you can fit in morning tea they have a great selection of cakes.

We have visited the Dee Cafe on several occasions and never been disappointed with the food or the service which has been excellent every time. Last time we visited was with our family and our niece just wanted plain pasta with cheese. We had visited several other establishments who refused to make this but the Dee Cafe were only too...

From the outside it looks small but you walk in and it's very cosy. The food is reasonable and very tasty. Good value for money. Highly recommended.
