Cycling through Tillicoultry on a cold Sunday in January and looking for a coffee / cake stop and this wee cafe was superb. I need to come back to try the full lunch menu

Just love Tilly Tearoom from the staff, to the freshly made scones, cakes, soups - there is NOTHING not to like about here. Its cosy but never feels busy even when it is, nothing is too much trouble and staff will do all they can to accommodate for all "foodies" including gluten free if I recall

Dropped in for a quick bite, Soup and sandwich for my better half and soup and pudding for me. Like a lot of people we share, glad we did, we were stuffed when we came out, had to walk home to walk it all off. We both had lentil soup which was delicious and hot. A meal in itself complete... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a good review on Trip Advisor recommending us - however, our walkers usually come in after their walk as they feel they have earned it! More

We dropped in for breakfast on a rather miserable Saturday morning. We were welcomed and seated quickly by Rebecca. Orders taken a few minutes later we opted for the bacon and egg muffin and an americano each. Coffee arrived quickly and was piping hot (take note Costa). Shortly afterwards breakfast arrived with a half muffin and delicious crispy bacon and... More

I read the reviews and decided to try Tilly Tearoom with my wife. Started with a plate of homemade mushroom soup - fantastic. Then on to coffee and home made traybakes . One of the best caramel shortcakes I've had and the coffee was as well.

Probably the best but most scary heading yet! Thank you so much for giving us such an excellent review but we are never complacent and it would have been so disappointing if we hadn't lived up to the hype...but thanks again for making us smile! More

What a hidden gem. Went to tearoom today and what lovely setting. All staff were so nice and helpful. Menu had lots of choices. Mum and I both had soup to start...yummy!! I had a bagel and my mum had a baked potato. Fresh and tasty. Mum came home with a takeaway meringue. Thank you girls!
