This lovely little café is a favourite stop for our whole family. We make a point of visiting every time we are in Peebles. The café is attached to a chocolatier and patisserie school. It is the perfect place to visit after a nice walk along the river as it is so centrally located with public car parking near-by. The... More

We came here on a drizzly cold Saturday afternoon and we're not disappointed to have made the trip. The cafe is lovely and has a very impressive selection of hot chocolates on their menu. They also do cakes, pâtisserie and some savoury food (though savoury menu seemed quite limited, understandably). I had a sandwich, which was perfectly good but nothing... More

Excellent gift, the cook school was great, friendly and welcoming. Ruth and her team were great and gave lots of tips along the way. I loved the class and hope to go back at some point. Well worth it

We couldn't wait to try here and we were not disappointed. Although next time one cake between two will be more than enough. The praline mouse was almost to rich but the eclair was great. Great for presents.

This is a super place which is a confectionery-focused shop and café serving chocolate afternoon teas, Cocoa Black in Peebles opened in 2010 and sells the award-winning handmade chocolate range, cakes and patisserie. The menu takes in wraps, sandwiches and scones, but it’s the chocolate and patisserie numbers that steal the show. Cocoa Black takes orders for personalised celebration cakes... More

Such a pity we were so well fed at our hotel that we hadn't room for too many of the delicious looking and beautifully crafted and displayed goodies on offer. Fortunately our first visit was en route to our hotel so we were able to manage a florentine and and a salted caramel shortbread biscuit. With two americanos this came... More

When I had made reservations in Peebles, I sought out special spots to check out and this one came up. Definitely worth the time to stop and peruse their Award winning chocolates and assorted bakery items. Very delicious and makes great gifts as well!

A super place and what's more they went out of their way to help me find some baking equipment I've been searching for for ages!
