Found this wee gem on our way to the city centre. Actually meant to go to the cafe across the road but delighted we stumbled upon tea and cake. Great choice for veggies of breakfast, brunch, lunch and cakes. The decor is cute and kitsch, warm and welcoming. Staff were quick, attentive and really friendly. We had smashed avocado toast...

We have been to this cafe a number of times and always enjoy it. The food is always freshly made and always tastes delicious. Staff are always very nice and the owner is very friendly. We will be back again.

Went here for a light lunch and was impressed. Good selection of food especially for vegetarians. Not being a veggie myself I had a BLT on a lovely crisp roll followed by home made carrot cake. It probably only holds about 24 people, and every table was taken when we were there. Nice and friendly staff and great service. Will... More

Yummy roasted beetroot, herby goat cheese , rocket leaves and balsamic dressing in a toasted ciabatta today. Great, friendly service and lovely hot coffee too. I don't usually make it here because it's always closed by the time I'm finished work at 4pm. So has to Saturdays for me.

Glad you enjoyed that sandwich, it's one that's close to home using our Granddad Bill's Beetroot from his allotment in Newburgh just across the water. Great to hear we were up to scratch for you and we will see what we can do about those opening hours, Claire More

I love visiting family-run/independent cafes....and my visit to this one was made all the more special by its quirky, vintage-ness! China teacups and saucers, and a cute teapot with its own unique cosy!....my tea was of course accompanied by a delish fruit scone (it was neck n neck between this and the banana and nutella scone 😍, cosied up with...

Wonderful, quirky Tea Shop, slightly off the main drag, but well worth a visit. Food served in mismatched china adds a charming air to the food. Fabulous selection of teas, coffees and cakes - lots of gluten-free options available. Suitable for 8 - 80 yrs. Loved it.
