Nice friendly atmosphere, the coffee was amazingly good. I was recommended the large 'hobknob' and was not disappointed, it was amazing. Certainly go back.

Visited with my friend for lunch last week. Staff friendly and courteous remembering me and service impeccable. The food is fantastic, fresh and tasty and every single member of staff is hardworking and attentive. I wouldn't go anywhere else and would strongly recommend a visit.

Only went in for a coffee. Was very impressed by the friendly, helpfulness of the staff. A lovely ambience. Noticed they had several regulars in. Always a good sign. A good variety of snacks , cakes etc available. Oh, and the coffee was good.

One thing we're not short of in Shawlands is coffee shops but Biscuit is certainly ahead of the rest. The coffee is great, service very friendly and the bacon rolls are the best in the World. Highly recommended!
