This café recommended by local certainly did not disappoint. Tucked away but well worth seeking out. We had mixed meze for two, which had a bit of everything - all of which was tasty. Reasonably priced, and available any time through the day. Will definitely...More

Unpretentious cafe, surrounded by books and lovely rugs (what's not to like) and the haddock chowder was worth a visit alone. Good coffee too, friendly staff, warm and welcoming atmosphere. Did I mention the haddock chowder?

Cosy combined cafe and bookshop near Hawick's Main Street. We enjoyed excellent beef chilli, pastrami and cheese bagels and espresso. Friendly efficient service. Newspapers available. Wide range of new and second-hand books you can either read in the cafe or buy.

Still good. Had very good soup, and one of our party had a mixed mezes plate. Followed by coffee and cake. The Guinness and chocolate cake was delicious. Relaxed atmosphere and worth a visit. Dogs are allowed in.

We popped into Damascus Drum for coffee, lovely drinks and a great range of books to browse while you quaff! Also they gave a warm welcome to our dog, finding him a lovely bowl of water and couldn't have been kinder.

I came in here for a late lunch after a hike. Service was friendly and the range of food is good, meze and bagels and cake. Soft drinks include Dandelion and Burdock! I had a bagel, which came with salad and crisps. The setting is...More
