We called in here for coffee one cold afternoon and were not disappointed! The coffee was good, the cafe is very clean and the young girls serving were very pleasant!

My friend And Intjought we would stop in 'Granton' for a light lunch. There's didn't seem to be many places that filled the bill however we decided to enter Chaplins. The place seemed quite busy with only a table right at the door. This proved very draughty and of course very busy with everyone coming and going. There were two... More

Located on main road just off the Square. Had tea and sticky toffee cake, which was wonderful. Good prices. Good spot for lunch or afternoon ice cream or dessert. People were constantly coming in. Owner seemed a little stressed, but service was good. Worth a visit.

We were in Grantown visiting family so popped into Chaplins for lunch. It is principally a tea shop, with lots of cakes, and they provide light meals. I had an absolutely delicious baked potato with beans and cheese, warming fair for a cold October day. Also good toasties and soup. Great for light bites at lunch, and cooked to order.

Stopped off here for a quick bite of lunch, and so pleased to say it was still pretty much as before from years ago. We had toasties, perfectly fine and filling and on the menu listed Ice Cream Floats, which I have not had one since a child, so fabulous to taste one again. A joy to relive. Would recommend... More

Just don't go here. The ciabattas were awful. Overcooked crispy haggis. Only warm and cheese half melted. The coleslaw.....massive chunks of cabbage. The side salad, overly sweet dressing ..think it was honey and mustard. The tortillas on the side, massive grease bombs with weird seasoning. Coffee was good at least

I had a lovely moist slice of the farmhouse cake, and the owner gave me the secret to achieving moist fruit cakes. My wife had the cheese on toast, which used two cheeses and made a delicious meal. Very friendly husband and wife team run the cafe, which has a quirky Charlie Chaplin link (hence the name).
