And you can have excellent coffee in a good airy space, though only 2 tables outside, the cakes are top notch (with prices to match) and the Lego inspired chocolates are fab too. Boxes of hand made chocs are £14 for 12 pieces....and can be gift wrapped. Lovely server.

After doing the Tweed walk we finished on with lovely cake and coffee. So much choice was difficult to decide what to have. Also had to take some chocolate and cakes home.

A popular stop for coffee and cakes - good for ice cream on a warm day too. Chocolate is their speciality and is really special!

I never go past a florentine, but hut should have sent this one back. It is hard to believe but it was burnt !! To add insult it cost almost £2 and there was next to no chocolate on the base, surprising given that the shop majors on chocolate. My wife had ice cream which was excellent. Sorry the damage...

Favourite place for hot chocolate, teas, coffees and cakes. Lovely welcoming and cosy atmosphere. The hot chocolate is dairy free - a rare occurrence. Great for me and a great taste! I am informed by my wife that the cakes are wonderful Perhaps one day, they will have something dairy free on offer?

Everything looked wonderful, and thus, made it very it difficult to choose. I settled on the black forest gateau which was so light and tasty - Devine. There was a small problem which was excellently sorted out by the manageress. The other chores were as delicious.

This place needs to review its working procedures in my experience. When we went it wasn't full up but fairly busy. You queue up at the counter and order your drinks and cakes. The workers make it while you wait, which today meant standing at the counter for 10 to 15 minutes (there was 3 people in front, some of... More
