Nice enough but it's trying to hit the quality luxury market place and failing with its average, uninspiring cakes and under filled Panninis

All cakes, scones and muffins are freshly baked the same day on site and the hot chocolate is good quality. perfect for the start of our mornings in Stirling. in the shopping centre near the south exit of debhnams.

Went here with two friends because we were in the need for a coffee. The muffins looked soo good though that we couldn't withstand those so we took one muffin as well. The muffins were absolutely amazing and the coffee was nice and strong!

Decent enough pit stop for coffee and a cake but not very memorable.Staff were friendly enough but didn't seem to be enjoying their job. Food was alright but nothing special big if looking for a quick refuel this does the job. Central handy location for shops and public transport.

Very friendly staff, great choice of tasty muffins with a variety of flavours. Always have a gluten free option & is delicious especially if you have it warmed up. Good selection of teas & coffees. Accessible for wheelchairs, prams & buggies.
