“Will definately be back”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

It was a lovely experience here after some shopping. The staff were courteous, friendly and made sure the place was spotless. We came in at the back of the rush by the number of trays on tables but within minutes the place was spotless again. It was great that we got free tea and coffee as well with the members card! Only possible suggestion I have is for the bakery section of the cafe: I was not aware of any information on what was vegetarian which would have been nice to see.

“A good experience while shopping.”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

This place came as a great surprise as we had only once been in a small Waitrose in Glasgow. The shopping experience is wonderful and the Cafe is an added bonus. We have our coffee on each visit and used to have a muffin but they don't serve these any more. We are working on an alternative snack! The staff are friendly and helpful, there is an open outlook and the place is clean and well decorated. Can't wait for our next visit.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

This is a self service cafe/restaurant within the new Waitrose in Stirling, almost at the town centre.
For a start if you have a Waitrose card you get a free cup of tea/coffee, so people go in and usually buy something else as well.
Staff are courteous and efficient, bringing the meal to you and checking on your state of satisfaction without being intrusive. There are free daily newspapers available as well.
They usually have a recommended dish, often a pasta with meat or vegetables, which is always excellent. On one occasion when I ordered this, after I sat down a member of staff came and apologised that they had run out, what else would I like, I chose, and when the meal arrived they refunded my money by way of apology.
Checking with other customers - universal approval.
