“Best coffee and cake in the area.”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

I love coffee and the deli really has the best choice of homemade cakes I've ever tasted. The cheese and pickle toastie is not only good value but unlike one you could make at home. The blueberry and almond cake has to be among my favourites. The atmosphere is friendly and tea is always served in a pretty china cup / cakes on china plates - it all makes for a great visit. It also offers the best decaf coffee I have ever tasted and the deli has a beautiful counter of treats to tempt you.
FANTASTIC

“Haddington gem”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Hilary's is a tiny deli and cafe. It stocks all sorts of delicious cheeses, hams, preserves, pasta, - everything you would expect, crammed into a small but beautiful space. Hilary also offers outside catering and takeaway soup, rolls, etc, which are very popular.

The cafe itself only has four tables, but they are spaced out so that you don't feel cramped, and it's fun to sit in the window and watch the world go by. The tea and coffee are both excellent, and last time I had the most delicious mint tea I have ever tasted (I can't remember it's name, but I'm sure the staff will.) The cakes are yummy and the scones are great - thought they do disappear soon, so go early.

This is a super independent business and a great asset to Haddington.
