Stopped at Tea and Cake for breakfast en route to St Andrews. Nice surroundings & service by lovely, friendly staff. We had a tasty breakfast & my companion's GF requirements were met without a problem. Wouldn't hesitate to go back, or recommend it to others.

Lovely cafe and great service considering how busy. Ordered coffee and a sandwich. Don't be put off by the strange combinations on offer, give it a go and you will be more than pleasantly surprised. Only issue, coffee could be hotter although I should have highlighted this and I have no doubt this would have been addressed. Definitely will be... More

We visited this cafe with my 8 week old daughter. At this age anyone who has had children will know it is vital to keep them warm. The owner asked us if it was ok to open the door as she was too hot and she did state that if we were to cold we could say and they would... More

I have been to Tea and Cake a lot for lunches and cake but never for breakfast. It is a lovely cosy place with a nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly and attentive. I went there for breakfast with one of my friends and I got the pancakes with bacon and syrup. Delicious!!!! Will be coming back for more!

So nice of you to leave some feedback and what lovely comments to start our day. Pancakes are a real favorite here at tea and cake, I think because it reminds us of our holidays! Hope to see you again soon to try something new (or not if you cant get passed those pancakes :) Claire More
