A nice little secret court yard out the back on a sunny day. Otherwise it's cosy inside. Good baking and hot drinks of all kinds.

My wife had eyed this place due to their decor and their phrase good karma makes good coffee. After a disappointing meal elsewhere, we came here for my wife to have good Scottish fayre (stovies) and for me to have a nice piece of cake. They had soya milk for the capuccinos we ordered.

Amanda, Trudie The Dog and I stopped off for lunch here and enjoyed our visit tremendously. Tasty, filling food was the order of the day and stovies hit the spot on that count. Trudie the dog was delighted with her stay and having a couple of new canine friends to make nearby, she was also made more than welcome by... More

Avoid. The elderly woman who greeted us was a rude and unwelcoming individual. She was very curt at our arrival and immediately off-putting. The cafe claims to be dog friendly, but is nothing of the sort - we were told there are two tables separated from the rest of the cafe where dogs are permitted. There are many other cafes... More

We are the only cafe allowing dogs into the building. In order to allow those of our customers who do not like being around dogs especially whilst they are eating we have created a separate but granted small area where dog and their owners are very welcome....we did have to turn away two huge Great Danes this week because simply...

We stopped in for coffee but couldn't resist scone and cake. Coffees were lovely. Banana scone was yummy. Lovely, quick friendly staff. Definitely go back.

Came across this cafe by chance going to Cathedral. Small but very good. Both of us enjoyed the stovies - very tasty. Lovely selection of home made cakes to choose from to enjoy with pot of tea. Our waitress was delightful, friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend. We sat in a very small area outside and we were blessed with... More

Having visited this café before when we were with friends we thought that we will take the family for a light lunch. The bill came to £63+ and was tasty but the portions were not very big for the prices paid, however, we all enjoyed the lunch even though the waitress was foreign and was difficult to understand at times...

As you enter you will see a counter with homemade cakes to enjoy with coffee or tea. I enjoyed a slice of Coffee Cake and the most cake covered generously in coffee icing Wass perfect for... More

Description
Wooden tables with cast iron bases' painted chairs and a warm welcome.We pride ourselves in making great tea and coffee with all our staff being trained in how to make the perfect froth to grace the best triple scored coffee. Tea has been chosen to compliment the local water conditions.A fantastic selection of cakes, from light crisp and chewy meringues to light Victoria Sponges to Macaroons and Apple Pies with pastry to die for.... all made in our small but busy kitchen.We invite walkers in and if your best friend is a dog bring them too ...we have an outdoor area which is smoke free so at last we can sit outside and be able to assured that the table next to you will not be smoking. Closed on Tuesdays. Though we will be open throughout the year.
