Looking for something a bit different- this is a great wee cafe in the old part of Dunkeld. We loved the soup and the gorgeous cakes. A real cut above the rest! Lovely Croque Dunkeld and soda bread.

Loved the food and excellent coffee. Quirky sort of place (in a good way). There is a selection of hot food and sandwiches and a big choice of cakes

On our first visit to Scotland we just came across this cafe tucked away near the cathedral in Dunkel, and are so glad we did. I had the leek and potato soup which was really proper home made and tasty.

My husband tried the stovies, a new experience. This was made with cornd beef, potatoe and gravy, served in a ramekin type dish. He loved it, said how tasty and filling it was, and I now need to try and make something similar at home for him.

I then had the most delicious pecan meringue I've ever had, all soft and squidgy in centre, with just right amount of cream - yum, a big helping too. It was mentioned on the board but not on display so ask, don't miss it if you love meringue. I was tempted by lots of the cakes, there were some unusual ones. Look on their facebook site Spill The Beans At MacPhails of Dunkeld for some tempting photos.

The girls were very friendly and helpful. A simple cafe but with the most wonderful home made food.. We will certainly return to Scotland, and hopefully to this cafe.

Stopped in here for a bite of lunch. Small dog friendly snug. Really enjoyed the Croque Dunkeld tho a little bit of side salad would have been nice. Husband loved his stovies and soda bread. Excellent selection of drinks and cakes.

Visited Spill the Beans today on the way home from our daughters Bungee Jump.

As always the coffee was excellent, we had no cake today but opted for the bacon rolls and Dunkeld Monsieur both were delishyummy!

Service was excellent, very attentive and great music coming from the kitchen!

Thanks for your review..

I'm glad that you enjoyed the Dunkeld and the bacon sandwiches ....and as for the music ..it doesn't happen often that the kitchen puts on a tune but we were inspired that day ....sometimes you might get a blast of Pharell Happy but I do recall the tune in question was Rock and Roll love affair....just to get us in the groove for the hectic day ahead...so glad you liked it!!! Perhaps you recognised it?
