I came across this place by accident, and its a foodie's aladdin's cave!
This small business is part deli-shop and part restaurant.
The range of food in offer is very good, specially because in Dundee we lack of speciality shops and restaurants. I found from falafel mix to panko breadcrumbs. And all is reasonably priced.
The restaurant is amazing, the menu is very good, with amazing stuff on offer.
I usually go at lunch time for the soup of the day, and each one is better than the day before! from amazing tomato soup with pesto to chicken broth, nice an thick for the cold winter days, it comes with a very nice big warm piece of bread and butter... yummy!
Sandwiches, ciabattas, great teas and coffee, dips and pathes... ah! and the carrot cake!! they also do a coffee and walnut loaf that is truly delicious.
It is managed by 2 lovely ladies, mom and daughter, and you are welcomed warmly, they are very nice, helpful and great cooks, as all is done in the premises.
I just got clootie dumpling for my xmas :) is very tasty! (yes, i had to have a bite!)
Next time youre in the city centre, do visit this amazing place, you wont be disappointed!!
