Stumbled across this cafe and popped in for a cuppa but the menu was so lovely we stayed for lunch. Cozy atmosphere. Lovely people. And the food was excellent. Clearly loved equally by teens, young Mums, families and older folk. Would definitely recommend a visit.

I really looked forward to Tea and Cake today. I have a gluten intolerance so it is difficult to find a place with good gluten free food. The website and the menu looked amazing but it wasn't.

I loved Tea and Cake, the service from the ladies was excellent especially Beth who couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. The menu choices were varied and healthy with lots of gluten free and vegan options too. Would definitely recommend.

As a vegan I frequently have to bring my own food to work because of the lack of vegan food options available. But....not in Dundee! Tea and Cake is an excellent example of more and more places offering menu options to suit all dietary requirements which can only be a good thing. With a lunch of broccoli and almond soup,... More

The place is nice and comfortable, with very cosy atmosphere. The open space makes you see what happens in the kitchen area, which I personally love 'cause it gives a homely feeling to the place. I had the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, which were quite nice. I'll definitely try something else, maybe for a light lunch!
