While visiting Peebles for the afternoon, all we wanted was tea and cake. This is without a doubt the place to go. The biggest decision was, what cake to have. We decided to share two and both were absolutely to die for. You must go!

Enjoyed so much the first day that we came back the next day for another cake. Staff helpful, seating area could be more inviting for such delicious cakes and well priced for their tray bakes/cakes. Treated myself to one of the "fancy" chocolates and although they are expensive you could taste the yummy luxury!

Visit for a hot chocolate and cake and it was a lovely as other people said. The hot chocolate was fresh and delightful and great selection of cakes. We had the melon, mango and white chocolate cake which was delicious. The staff are very friendly.

Not my bag, too much chocolate makes me feel bleugh, but chocoholics will love it. Coffee cake wasn't particularly impressive but kids liked their chocolate lollies and my smoothie was good. Dogs not allowed inside. Other half enjoyed a chai milk chocolate. Some of the cakes looked like works of art.

Thought we would grab coffee & cake before heading back to Ayrshire. We were not disappointed the cakes are all made in the chocolate making school downstairs. The owner is a master chocalatier & patisseri. Great cakes you need to try it unless you DON'T like chocolate. We do & will return for CHOCOLATE cake. Soon hopefully.

My daughter and I visited this shop during our visit to Peebles. It was our first visit and we would thoroughly recommend it. The staff were pleasant and helpful and their cakes and pastries were to die for. What's more they are very reasonably priced. We definitely recommend.

Thank Linda J
