Been to Scotts a few times. Good coffee, didn't eat anything this visit. Not really my scene always feels about the " the place to be seen" which isn't really me

Friends introduced us: and they have great taste. This place is excellent. A lively, interesting menu is backed up with spot on cooking and ingredients and fun, informal service. Coffee and tea choices are stimulating and pair well with the food. Definitely a place to go for breakfast, brunch, lunch several times over!

We dropped in for lunch one day after hearing good things about the place. The welcome was warm, the service slick and the food really good.

Scotts is a regular haunt for myself and a few colleagues, especially at breakfast. The coffee is good, as is the service. I love the Scotts' Salmon Gravlax (heck, I'm salivating now thinking about it!) Their eggs, healthy breakfast, bircher muesli and crepes are really good too.

We only stopped by for an afternoon break before visiting the museum and were very impressed with the friendly and helpful service. We are following a Ketogenic diet for medical reasons and the waitress checked carefully with the chef to find out what might be suitable for us. They seemed informed and knowledgable about this diet - which really impressed... More

We met family here for a light snack and coffee. The cafe was packed -mid afternoon Saturday but that's a great sign being popular. We sat in the courtyard which was actually better as it was quiet and nice being in the fresh air. The menu looked lovely, we only wanted a snack so chose from the cabinet. Great selection.... More
