Put simply, order the full Scottish breakfast. Had 2 this last week whilst on honeymoon and on my return to Manchester I don't think I will ever have a full English again. Would be no point!
Amazing food in an amazing cafe in an amazing part of the world.

It's a few years since I'd been here, but remembered the Taste as being a very worthwhile stop in Callander - a top notch "Spoon" (i.e. great food at great prices!)

Whilst the quality of the food was decent, the prices had gone up a fair bit, and the service was very disappointing. The cafe was not busy when we visited, and the young girl who took the order for the four of us got it wrong. The proprietor was still very friendly, and the food was a reasonably sized portion (though not as large as I remember from previous visitis).

The ice cream is very good, and well worth trying - but overall it didn't quite live up to expectations.

The food is still nice, average value for money, and service now appears to be hit or miss. You could do a lot worse in Callander, but maybe do better too!

Thank you for your review on trip advisor.There are a few points (as the owner) i would like to respond to. My wife and I opened Taste of the Trossachs only a year and a half ago. Our portion sizes have never changed and there has only been been a slight price increase since opening and this is due to our suppliers increasing their prices. We pride ourselves on high standards of customer service and due to your review we have reiterated the importance of reading back the order to the customer to insure the order is correct. In your review it states that it had been a few years since you visited, therefore we were probably not the owners at the time. Your review is the exception not the rule as can been seen from our other reviews.
We always appreciate customer feedback as this helps us to improve our business.

Had the pork roll. Very soggy and pork was just very thin pieces. We also had a small steak pie which was totally dried out and had a strange taste. With a couple of cokes £10 was a bit steep.
Shame as service was great and had a good range of food.
