The staff are always pleasant and friendly even when busy which it has been most of the times I have been. Good selection of cakes and lovely scones. Prices are reasonable as well. It's inside dobbies garden... More

Late lunch with my mum. Attentive staff, large choice of food, all freshly prepared and definitely worth a visit or stop off! Next to Kinross services and far better than a bought sandwich! Been a few times and always good (and busy)! Will be back soon!

The soup and sandwich I had was so tasty and my partner enjoyed his toastie. Very reasonable prices and something on the menu for everyone. The staff were fantastic and it was very... More

However we discovered le jardin cafe inside Dobbies and decided to try it . What a great decision that proved - lovely restaurant... More

Stopped here for lunch while driving to St Andrews. Had the soup which came with a warm roll. Soup was chicken broth but had tarragon in it. It is the first time I have had chicken broth with tarragon and, surprisingly, it works really well. Other peoples' salads looked great as did the bakery goods. Will definitely come here again!

We picked Le Jardin Café as a meeting point as we were all coming from different directions and it is close to the motorway exit. This is a busy café very popular with locals and travellers like us. We got a table straight away. I think they focus on good quality home cooked food so instead of a huge choice... More

Had a cuppa yesterday and decided to come for breakfast today. Well presented hot breakfast served up to 11.30. It was that good that we had another pot of tea and a fruit scone. Ten out of ten. Would definitely return when staying at Travelodge next door.

You have to book if you want to eat here. Yes! It is that good. The food is simply amazing. The choice of food will suit almost every taste and.. guess what? Not a chip in sight!! Every time we are in this area, we eat here. Enough said?

Description
Welcome to Le Jardin, where our menu features something to suit everyone's tastes. What better way to warm yourself up on a chilly winter's day than by sitting down to a hearty bowl of our homemade soup or creamy macaroni? Or if you're in the mood for something lighter, you'll be spoilt for choice when you see our eclectic range of crunchy salads.
Perhaps you live locally and feel like treating yourself and a friend to lunch, or maybe you're visiting Kinross-shire on holiday and fancy a melt-in-the-mouth scone washed down by a pot of piping hot tea.
Whoever you are and whatever you like to eat, you'll love Le Jardin.
Our focus is firmly on freshly prepared food that looks and tastes great, so our menu features a wide range of healthy, wholesome snacks, starters and main courses - though, of course, if you're in need of a little treat, you can equally well order a round of sandwiches and a cream cake (or three) for afternoon tea!
Locals and visitors of all ages love our light, spacious restaurant with its gorgeous sunny conservatory. OK, we admit - it's not always sunny in Kinross, but on rainy days you can always use your imagination!
Conveniently situated just off the M90 and adjacent to the local Dobbies Garden Store, the aptly named Le Jardin restaurant is a popular port of call for locals and visitors to the area alike. Why not come and experience our fabulous food and unique atmosphere for yourself soon?
