Absolutely delicious scones. Splurge and make sure to get the clotted cream. The aesthetic is very pleasing-it’s got an old school feel.

Excellent place for lunch. It is small and very busy but worth the wait. My husband had a steak sandwich and coke float and I had one of their scones with jam and cream. Both were excellent. The staff were very nice. We'll definitely be back, even just to get some scones to take away!

This little establishment was recommended as a "must visit" place whilst in St Andrews. The recommendation wasn't wrong. We visited and had to come back as there were no tables available. However, on our return, we were successful in getting a table. The shelves and walls are filled with items that will bring a smile to your face remembering those in your life who used them i.e. the wooden clothes tongs and the pulley. It gives you a sense of walking back in time to a place in your childhood filled with memories of your parents or indeed grandparents.

The food itself (we had Tea and Scones) well, the size of the scones are humungous but that is most certainly not a complaint. The only thing is, leave your diet at the door if you go here. Pick it up on the way out and don't feel guilty.

Waiting staff are very friendly and courteous. You do however need to be aware that the clientele is not just tourists but Uni students with their laptops or paperwork out studying - and why not.

Thank you to the staff and management (and for the recommendation) for this wee treasure.

Till the next time .....
