Well sited with the Abbey conveniently across the road. Parking is not difficult in Melrose. Good plain food at a sensible cost.

The cafe serves simple but good food at a decent price. It is a nice stop on you way to Edinburg, next to a large parking area. Time for a sandwich, soup, and a visit to the toilet. The serving ladies are very friendly.

This was example of an excellent small cafe, where the choices were well judged and served to perfection. Water for each pot of tea was boiled fresh each time. Soup very tasty and cakes extremely tempting. Staff were very friendly. Nice range of books to...More
