Another relaxing visit to Tartan Coffee House with a difference. Not the normal run of the mill cafe but an experience of tasteful decor with a selection of tables & chairs with the use of sofas and armchairs as an option. Staff have a warm approach but are quietly efficient and up to speed. My requirement of food has always... More

Visited with a friend and her baby and was great for space for the buggy in the back room where we were seated on comfy sofas. Food we had was good, bit disappointed in selection of cakes but just my taste as more traybake type cakes rather than sponge ones 😊Staff nice and service good

Went into this lovely spacious coffee shop in a great location for Whitehall theatre. Food was tasty and good price for amount you got. I had haggis cheese chilli jam panini which was delicious. I had a scone with jam and 2 cola's and total bill came to £10.00 exactly. The only thing that I noticed was the lack of... More

Great family lunch with all 5 members being extremely satisfied, even my 3 year old grandson had a good choice from the kids menu. He was offered pencils and paper to colour in which kept him busy and entertained. The service was extremely attentive. Amazing cakes. Good value for money will definitely be back soon.

Hi Great to see that you all enjoyed your visit. We do try to cater for kids and we find that the crayons, drawing paper and books help to them amused and happy. The kids menu is also big hit. This gives the adults some time to enjoy their food and drinks relatively peacefully !! We do try to offer... More

We decided this morning that we would go to the Tartan Cafe for a late lunch this afternoon. It was my third visit to this establishment and my friends second visit. We sat half way in on a nice low comfy couch and a young man offered us menus and he went off to fill up shelves of canned juices... More

I've been coming to the cafe for a few months now and I love it! I recently had a blueberry muffin along with a hot chocolate, both delicious. The hot chocolate from here is amazing and would definitely recommend it to anyone! The atmosphere is relaxed and cosy, and the staff are friendly, couldn't ask for better service. Will definitely...
