I came across this Lovely café in Montrose whilst visiting Friends and Family over the Christmas Holidays, I had a Caramel Latte and a Mozzarella, Basil, pesto and Tomato Panini, both of which were excellent. The staff were very friendly and the shop had a lovely atmosphere to it I will definitely be back when visiting Montrose again.

P.S I highly Recommend the Caramel Latte it was delicious .....

As locals we decided to try this cafe as the coffee shop across the road was very busy, wish we had waited in the queue! Both my husband and I had soup,both tasted like dishwater! Also ordered coffee which arrived about 10 mins before the soup so it was cold by the time we had finished the soup so never even tried a cake which I was looking forward too. Won't be going back in a hurry!!

Dear Weeburd5,

I am sorry to hear that you didn't have a pleasant experience at our coffee shop, I can only apologise for this and have taken your comments on board and now encourage staff to ask if you would like coffee alongside soup or after as all customers have different preferences.
I apologise that you didn't like our soup, I have Scrapped the old recipes and have new ones we have had alot of good comments on them they are full of flavour, I only hope you will give us another try sometime so we can give you the level of service you deserve.

Many Thanks

Kind Regards
Nadine

Wanted a flat white coffee and got looked at like I had two heads...I had to tell them what it was!!?? If you don't know what a flat white is then why do you have a coffee machine and a cafe called "a CUP above the rest".. Plus the bacon roll was a shocking £3.95....!!!! It's only £1.95 across the road. Having read the "half shot" comment I'm so glad I'm not the only one who was treated like this!!! The Cafe&Bistro across the road is the only place I would recommend that you try for all coffees and you won't get looked at like you have two heads!!

Dear xxxxx123xxxxxx

I assure you that myself and staff all know what a flat white coffee is as it's on our menu, any of my staff will make you a white coffee any time as they are all fully trained to do so. I am puzzled by your comments, they seem to be steering towards bitterness for our coffee shop and bigging up the Café/Bistro over the road a little suspicious I suspect. Our Name is a Cup above as in a little taste of heaven ( Not A Cup above the rest as you have implied) . We also have never been or ever will be £3.95 for a bacon roll we are £2.50 for a Bacon Roll (we use quality Butchers Bacon) therefore I think £2.50 for a bacon roll is very reasonable price as the bacon is of very high quality.

Regards

In response to what can only be described as a "rant" below (from the coffee experience), I was in the cafe during said visit and only saw the waitresses being nothing but polite to this couple as they were rude and shouted at the staff! In fact, others in the cafe were shocked at how aggressive this man was when entering the shop! There was no politeness as indicted by his wife, who at the time looked affronted at her husbands behaviour! Please do not be put off by this. A cup above is a warm, friendly cafe with very bubbly staff who are only to happy to see you!!!

Stopped in for lunch and had their steak sandwich, which came with a side of salad and crisps. I had a herbal tea and a lovely piece of home made cake to follow and it was all delicious.
The staff are lovely and friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
I would recommend you try A Cup Above if you have not tried it already as it is a hidden gem of a place.
