Visited the Pavilion for lunch with my elderly Mother In Law. They couldn't be more friendly, helpful and accommodating. Food as always was so tasty and well presented.

Quick and friendly service and always high quality. Definitely worth a visit if you are in Montrose and would recommend the lunchtime specials.

Many thanks for your lovely and positive review
A small independent business like mine really relies on my fantastic customers and receiving great feedback makes all the hard work really worth while.

As the owner of Pavilion Café I am very disappointed that your visit to my café was not a good experience for you.
I was working on Saturday and it was very busy with most of the tables booked out for lunch, this is probably why you were asked if you had a booking!
I have questioned my staff regarding any complaints about the food on Saturday and there were none, so I am surprised that you never complained about your food and sent it back if it was cold and tasteless !!!
Most of my customer reviews are about the great service and friendliness of the staff. I can only apologise for your experience and use your criticism to my advantage.

I have just enjoyed my second visit to The Pavilion - it is going to go to top of my list for lunch outings. The menu is imaginative, with many options having real eye appeal too. I liked the moderate portions, especially the small but tasty dish of creamy coleslaw. I enjoyed the avocado and hummus open sandwich with red pepper (had a special name but I can't remember). This had colour and flavour that sang out in a complimentary way. My friend had the Chicken flatbread, that looked really enticing, fresh and tasty, and with nice thin base - which suits my appetite and will be ordered whenever it is on. I didn't have coffee and not a cake eater but what I saw looked fresh and tasty. And to cap that, parking seems easy very nearby. I will most certainly be back, and recommend to friends.

Used to visit Rosie’s Bakehouse in Brechin for when we were up for the football (if you can call it that)
Heard that she had sold up and opened a new establishment in Montrose so could not resist the temptation as we were in area.
A warm welcome by Rosie and staff and a delightful friendly ambience in the cafe.
We had the spinach omelette which was simply divine...the cakes and pastries on show were hard to resist and did not disappoint...In all a truly wonderful experience from the proprietor who really knows how to run a business.
We travel up from Leeds three or four times a year to see Brechin City and since Montrose is in the vicinity the pavilion cafe will be added to the Itinerary every time.

Great review, and it was fantastic to see you all again.
Love my little café and its customers and was blown away that you had tracked me down to Montrose.
Look forward to your next visit when you come to watch Montrose play!!!!
