We went for lunch everyday it was open when we were in Rothbury. The home made soups were all very tasty and imaginative. We particularly enjoyed the pea, spinach and lovage soup. The Cappocinnos were also superb.

It's difficult to categorise this restaurant. It's part coffee shop, part art gallery and it serves the most delicious home made soup as well. I call in every time I'm up walking in Rothbury and it's been consistently good. There is a large selection of teas and coffees and the cakes are just lovely.

We were enticed in by the sight of scones on the menu, and certainly weren't disappointed. The cafe is a set in a lovely art gallery. The building itself is beautiful, light and airy, and you can admire the art in a completely non-pressured environment whilst you're waiting for your food or drinks. We all had one of the date and cinnamon scones, which were probably the best scones we've ever tasted. Lovely jam too. The staff were very friendly and let us wander off to look at the tea selection at our leisure. The cakes are obviously handmade and they have some really interesting flavour combinations, as well as old favourites. The tea was beautifully served, and very tasty, I can certainly recommend the Grapefruit Black Tea. My mother asked for a slightly weaker coffee and the staff were more than happy to oblige, making a cup that suited her tastes perfectly. It's a great place to chat with family and friends as the tables are far apart from each other, and the nice music means it isn't too echoey, so you don't feel overheard. Spotlessly clean too. Would love to return to try some of the delicious smelling soups!
