We visited this lovely place tucked away in a corner of Hawick. My friend had a meze plate which looked great, and disappeared quickly, and I had scotch broth with homemade bread, which was really tasty. Will definitely visit again when next in Hawick.

Had the pastrami and tomato panini and it was genuinely great. Amazing seasoned to perfection. Staff were friendly and the eclectic style (cafe/book shop/rug shop) added to a friendly atmosphere.

Yummy cake & tea perfect for a quick stop. It’s a bit tricky to find & find parking but with a short walk . You can thumb through books while you wait for your tea

Cosy little cafe up a quiet side lane with a warm local welcome. Homemade soup and sandwiches etc. with a good selection of meals on offer. Well worth a visit rather than any of the large chains around town.

It's great here, a great addition to Hawick. The food & coffee is great and the chai latte was delicious. This is our new 'go to' place in Hawick. More cafés should be like this.

What a lovely little cafe. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit late one afternoon. The coffee was lovely and there was a bookshop where you could buy books.

Lovely furnishings, including a Chesterfield sofa. Extensive menu with lots of veggie options and everything cooked to order. Daily specials too. Simply don't understand the negative reviews. The loo has always been spotless in my visits and it clearly states on the door that it's...More
