Description: 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.

After spending the morning at Potties next door painting a ceramic pig, (don't ask!), I was ready for a light lunch. This is a cafe, no more no less. Modern setting. Great lunch choices of soups (lentil & veg on offer that day), toasted sandwiches, jacket potatoes, cakes, etc and a good choice of coffees and a very large range of teas if you fancy something more than a breakfast tea. They also have what I call 'none tea teas' - fruit flavours, etc and serve their teas in nice pots with the leaves in a central part so you don't have to strain them. Service is professional. Very busy when we visited. Also convenient for centre of town

Found the cafe as we were walking to the Cathedral. We were given a lovely warm welcome and asked if we wished to sit inside or outside. We sat indoors but the walled area outside looked equally appealing.
The toasties are served with a nice salad portion attractively presented. Coffee comes accompanied with a glass of iced water and small flower in a dish. The cakes are delicious.
The cafe is bright clean and attractive with first class service

Even though we only wanted a coffee one afternoon, we were made very welcome and it was served beautifully, with a glass of water on the side. We've been here before and enjoyed the food. Children and dogs are made welcome. It is spotlessly clean.

There is a lovely selection of cold drinks, albeit none, as far as I could see, local. Perhaps in the future local (Scottish) fruit juices could be featured? That said, I look forward to a return visit.

The cafe is located about 50 yards from the Cathedral - yes you have guessed it - in Cathedral Street Dunkeld Perthshire, Scotland. The Cafe is very clean and the staff are very helpful. Through the back is a small courtyard with about 6 tables, which is perfect for a sit in the sun and a coffee and scones. Reasonable price with excellent service!

Visited on Easter weekend. What a great place. We had our 2 dogs with us and we were made so welcome. Sat in the little courtyard garden, had coffee and cakes just out of the oven. Waitress was lovely, she made a fuss of the dogs and made sure they had a bowl of fresh water. A great experience, reasonably priced and will definitely go back. Rocky road cake was yummy. Loved this little cafe, staff so lovely xx
