Eat a late breakfast here and I have to say this is the BEST black pudding I have ever eaten and I grew up just miles from here. Beautiful cafe. Good selection of eats and little gifts to purchase. Looks like the couple that run it may be owner/operators and they most definitely were all about us having a good... More

Three of us had lunch here last week. Prices were expensive by lunch time standards. For £7.50 I expected a bit more for my Ploughman's Lunch, 2 types of cheese, some warm crusty bread a wee salad, pickle.....eh, that was it! My wife's was equally fared little better. Can think of much better ways of sending £25 for lunch.

My wife and I were having a stroll around Crieff town centre today, came across this café and thought we would pop in for some light refreshments. After perusing their menu and seeing the prices we decided just to go for drinks only. I had a hot chocolate whilst my wife had a latte. If we had decided to have... More

This place was a cross between a cafe and a shop and it was a real find. The food was very tasty and homemade for the most part. The whole place had a very welcoming vibe, from its friendly staff to its cozy decor. It was a bit like going to visit a friends house it had sofas, a warm... More

A super coffee shop on Crieff's high street. An excellent choice of teas and coffees. Warm and cold dishes and assortment of cakes. The coffee shop has a lovely atmosphere and sells range of good quality items if you're looking for a unique gift

I have to admit I only went in here as I needed the loo but so glad I did! 2 hot chocolates, 1 chai latte, 1 Americano, and four cakes later we were all glad I needed the loo. They have a lovely selection of cards and gifts too. Here for a few days so sure to be back.
