Not been for a long time so decided to revisit. Lovely coffee & great selection of hot food or snacks. Cheese scone was delicious. Highly recommend if In Moffat. Noticed there were gluten free options.

We popped in mid morning for a coffee and gave in to temptation and ordered a cheese and a fruit scone, both were good and had lots of flavour particularly the cheese scone. Very busy café, friendly helpful staff. We'll definitely be back possibly for lunch next time. N.B. word of warning when visiting Moffat avoid the singing potter😨.

Came here on my parents recommendation. Service was good, coffee was good, home made ice cream milk shake was very good. Food and the tables are what let this place down for me. Home made burger was clearly home made but tasted cheap, no salad in the burger. Only choice to have with the burger was a undressed garnish or... More

I have been staying here for more years than I can remember. A family run hotel that make you feel at home, nothing is to much trouble, my hotel of choice when I'm in the area.

Stumbled upon this lovely welcoming cafe with fabulous home baking - certainly worth a visit - traditional Italian cafe - hope to return.

Having given the cafe amiss for a few years and trying other places , we thought we would see if had changed , we were disappointed in it. Coffee wasn't very warm and sausage was undercooked, so didn't enjoy the visit at all. It's a busy cafe with very nice staff but we wouldn't rush back when in the area.

Excellent choice of food, not too long a wait but freshly done - all worth it. Slightly pricier than some but quality shows.
