I prefer supporting local cafes and found this for your breakfast which is just round the corner from malmaison. Great cuppa tea and bacon roll. Got rolls. Lovely. I understand they make decent coffee as well.

Only place I found open near the V&A in Dundee early on a Sunday. It’s a great wee coffee shop and the service was excellent. Bacon roll and coffee were perfect. Would definitely recommend.

Sorry but not sure as when I reviewed it hadn't moved to its new address. But I do know it no longer does its lovely pizzas, it is more just a cafe now but I'm sure will still be nice.
