I don't think I have ever felt so guilty asking for a soy cappuccino.....or as disappointed that I couldn't eat the gorgeous ice cream...it is a dairy and proud of it and so it should be. Beautifully decorated and situated with lovely genuine staff...thanks!

I cycled from Perth to Fintry and this cafe was my half way point, so it was a welcome break. The food and the service were excellent and high recommended.

I only stopped for a coffee and a cake, which were both very nice. Lovely country decor, very smartly dressed and professional staff many of whom appeared to be preparing for a busy day ahead. The breakfast and lunch menus both looked excellent and I'd be keen to return and give them a try.

Found this cafe by accident last year on our way home from a small trip up north. We drove towards Fintry and it was off the beaten track. Set in beautiful countryside. Lovely surroundings. The food is delicious and the home baking first class. Good value for money. Have gone back time and time again whenever I get a chance... More

Visited by chance on Mothers day the only table available was outside, which was great as the weather was spectacular for the time of year. Impressed with the whole set up , will definitely be back to sample more... More

My boyfriend and I regularly go to the Courtyard cafe. The drive from Stirling is lovely and the country scenery is amazing. The cafeteria it is well lit, beautifully decorated and the food is always great. I must confess I always take the Smoked salmon open sandwich with prawns that is my favourites. This is as well my favourite place... More

Been coming here for years but dawned on me today I've never reviewed it. Real away from it all location, tastefully decorated and consistently good whether it's just a bacon sandwich or a full lunch. Decent coffee and the cakes and scones are excellent - best paradise slice anywhere. If you are in the area it's definitely worth a visit.

4 of us went along to the Courtyard Cafe on Sunday and we all had the Tomato and Red Pepper Soup which was absolutely delicious - served with creme fraiche and lovely home-made bread. We then had coffees (mine was the Gingerbread Latte which was brilliant) and some Carrot Cake, although one of us had the ginger and melon ice-cream.... More

My wife and I were at a loose end and decided to go for a run in the car into the Fintry hills with the intention to stop for a coffee somewhere . The weather was awful and we couldn't really get out the car and go for a walk at the Carron Valley reservoir so we pressed on and... More

This is a lovely little gem of a cafe tucked away in the tiny village of Fintry. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a choice of tables. We chose to sit in the conservatory. The whole place is tastefully decorated, homely, very clean and welcoming. The food is amazing and affordably priced. They were accommodating when I requested a... More
