This cafe is situated on a quiet road on the way to Dunkeld Cathedral. It is very popular and can get crowded. There is also an outside seating area behind the restaurant. It serves a good range of food and drink. There are delicious cakes...More

We made the mistake of coming here for lunch rather than cake and coffee. The lunch here is very standard English lunch of toasted sandwiches and baked potatoes. We were looking for something a little more substantial. The upside was that we had plenty of...More

I don't get the high rating on TripAdvisor for this café. The cakes we ordered where way to sweat, and the older lady serving us made us feel very unwelcome. There where 3 other groups there so we don't really get the unfriendly attitude. And...More

Wooden tables with cast iron bases' painted chairs and a warm welcome.We pride ourselves in making great tea and coffee with all our staff being trained in how to make the perfect froth to grace the best triple scored coffee. Tea has been chosen to compliment the local water conditions.A fantastic selection of cakes, from light crisp and chewy meringues to light Victoria Sponges to Macaroons and Apple Pies with pastry to die for.... all made in our small but busy kitchen.We invite walkers in and if your best friend is a dog bring them too ...we have an outdoor area which is smoke free so at last we can sit outside and be able to assured that the table next to you will not be smoking. Closed on Tuesdays. Though we will be open throughout the year.
