Nice little cafe ,had coffee and bacon sandwichs. The cafe latte was absolutely gorgeous and the shot of vanilla was a good surprise as most smaller don't this option ! Shame they had ran out of rolls but I would just put that down to being really popular ! Nothing bad to say about this visit :)

Four of us popped in for a late lunch of toasted sandwiches, panini and jacket potato. Everything was well prepared, quickly served and just exactly what we needed. Service was very friendly and there is a nice small and cosy feel. Would certainly return

We stopped here to break up the journey en-route to the Stirling area. The staff were very friendly, and the service was slick and unobtrusive. The menu caters very nicely for the traveller looking for a short break and the food is excellent in quality and presentation and not badly priced either.

Popped in for a cuppa and a scone. You've got to try the homemade scones. Delicious! Spotlessly clean cafe with excellent service

Nice cafe opposite Jedburgh Abbey that is what you'd expect from a cafe doing cakes and coffees. It's a welcome relief from the other places in Jedburgh we saw that are the typically tired, run down and uninspiring places Scotland does so well. We arrived on a Sunday and this was the only place open. Well done!
