“overpriced.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Not impressed, owner rude. Talks down to staff. Won't be back here, nicer coffee shops in forfar where you get value for money and good service, heard good reviews but I was disappointed with this place. Only good thing would be location of shop if you were having a look around forfar. Clean shop, not worth a second visit.

Mug of latté and a Danish fair keeps you going. Quick, polite service. Worth supporting places like this.

“Well Worth A Visit when You Are in Forfar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

On a cold day in Forfar and there are plenty of them coming, you will not be disappointed with the warm friendly atmosphere and service in this wee cafe. The wide selection of food on the menu and a Specials Board caters for those wanting a full meal or just coffee/tea and cakes. The service was very good and there was a plentiful selection of tasty cakes.

“Gem of a cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013

Whilst staying with friends in Arbroath, we were brought to Tiffins for cake and coffee, as they come here quite often. The atmosphere was friendly and welcoming and service was good. I
was especially impressed with the way older customers were treated so respectfully, quite a refreshing change to see such courtesy.

Our food was very good but the cappuccino was absolutely gorgeous - the best I have tasted in
a long while. A proper large mug as standard and was so hot it lasted ages. If we ever find ourselves in the area again, that will be the first place we would visit.

“Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Happened upon this place by luck. The soup was delicious what you would hope to get at a five star hotel but may not. Service was impeccable.
