Great atmosphere. Perfect welcome. Couldn't be more helpful with us because we had a small child in a buggy. Looked after us well and a great selection of gluten free available. Will definitely recommend and definitely be back '

If you like scones, the Ditsy Teacup is the place to go. Everyday they serve plain, cheese and fruit scones as well as a surprise flavour. I have tried snickers and double chocolate and they were both absolutely divine! I've also tried one of their soups but it was nowhere near as good as their scones. The staff is really... More

This could be a good cafe but not well run. When you have an open plan kitchen you need to aware that customers can see what's going on. When staff use protective gloves,sometimes this can be a mistake as it can lure staff into a false security regarding food hygiene. I watched a lady wearing gloves prepare food and handling... More

Another visit to this place last wee. This is a delightful wee café, with the most delicious selection of meals and home baking. The café is delightful, with all sorts of odd tables and chairs, and delightful crockery. The cakes are delicious and the servings are very generous. Well worth a visit.

Very friendly and helpful staff, just a bit hot sitting in the window as it faces west! So clean. Tea was lovely cuppa, in a good location for those who can't walk far from the car park. A little crowded as very small...thus the Dirsy Teacup! It says what it it

We arrived late afternoon and was welcomed to a table but it did become surprisingly clear the one person looking after the Cafe was closing up which we thought was quite early for a cafe. There was one other couple that appeared to have been just been served sandwiches and tea. We waited perhaps a good 8-10 minutes before our... More

Found this place quite by accident yesterday on my first ever visit to Elgin town centre. It is a delightful little tea room with a charming vintage decor. There was a mouth-watering range of treats on offer which had me poring over the menu for ages. The staff were pleasant and helpful and the food was freshly prepared. Such a... More
