An historic building with a past and a very cosy atmospheric cafe. Spinach soup was great and coffee really good too. Couldn't resist some chocolates on way out, which are fairly expensive but that's the price of quality.

The Cocoa Tree is an excellent refuge from the wind and rain. Staff are friendly and efficient. The hazelnut hot chocolate with a cinnamon stick is a delight for any hot chocolate connoisseur. The fruit scone with cream and Ardross raspberry jam is a delicious...More
