A very friendly welcome and then given the menu with a great explanation of the special risotto. We had to try it and it indeed was special. Nicely furnished, very comfortable and welcoming to dogs, even if it is a little on the expensive side.

Went in for a late morning coffee and was pleasantly surprised. Great menu with gorgeous cakes and speciality coffees etc. The service was great with lovely staff. They also treated our little girl very well and we were pleased to see it was dog friendly. Food came quickly and prices were very good. To be recommended

Called in three times during our holiday with our two whippets . The staff could not have been nicer or more attentive . Excellent food especially the scones . Spotlessly clean and lovely comfortable seating. The dog friendly area is fab ..even pictures of dogs on the wall ! We will return .

Trip Advisor rating makes you have to choose between Average or Very Good, with nothing in between. I would rather say this place was good. Plus points first. It is beautifully modern and clean, light and airy and a pleasure to sit in. It is also signposted as dog friendly, which meant I was able to meet and speak to... More

Congratulations on the set up for dog lovers. Non dog lovers had their own space but did not benefit from.treats, dog bowls, dog baskets or bringing their own toys. Dillon relaxed and chilled as we did. Human food and welcome was outstanding. Be back soon.

I had lunch with my ex wife and her dog at Cafe Circa today, and despite arriving too late for a cooked lunch, we were still offered the option of fish and chips as the chef had batter already made up, and the fryer was still on. This sort of flexibility is a sign of a good restaurant, and was... More

I know Cafe Circa well already from the Antique Centre in Doune so am already a fan. The new addition of the Atrium in Callander has everything - wonderful food, great customer service and beautiful decor. I'll go back and back !

If you find yourself in Callander and fancy a reasonably priced bite to eat, then "DONT " visit cafe circa !! £4.50 for a roll on black pudding!! Really! And as for friendly service? Obviously the new owners are catering to the six figure salary crowd !! It's a cafe , not the ritz ! Drop your prices, not your... More

wendy e, Owner at Cafe Circa at the Atrium, responded to this review

Thanks for your review Colin, I think advising folks DONT visit us is a bit off,. perhaps this is a great warning to others,. if you DONT read the menu, which clearly states how much things are, it would not have been such a surprise. If you did read the menu and ordered, why complain about the price, as you... More

Cafe Circa at the Atrium is a smart table service licenced restaurant, newly refurbished and spacious with comfortable seating and couches. The relaxing warm dining room has a great ambiance and nice views of Ben Ledi and the Crags. The food is freshly prepared and cooked to order, gluten free dining is the norm not the exception. Our menu is small and seasonal, guaranteed fresh. We use quality meats from an award winning local butcher and fresh Scottish landed fish from award winning local fish monger. The Home baking is done in-house daily and won a Scottish baking award last year.
