They really know how to brew a perfect coffee. Also the croissants and cakes are excellent. Lots of local students in there, nice electro-swing music in the background. Little games like backgammon are there. Perfect place to spend a lazy morning.

Nice little cafe, decent location and serves excellent croissants. Get here early and sit out on the bench in the sunshine. Doubtful you'll get a seat inside as it's always busy when we've been past. Only downside is it's pretty cramped

It's a bit small but I got there just before the morning rush today and the coffee and chocolate pastry thing I had were just divine. Highly recommened.

Tiny wee place that sells the best coffee, vegan brownies, good sandwiches. Always busy, but worth the two minute walk from St*****ks and P**t

First visit here, always busy when we passed so decided to have a coffee and a panini. Very popular with golfers, student types and locals. Very tasty coffee and paninis. Sat on a stool by the window and people watched. Will be back next time...More

We rented a house in St Andrews and found ourselves looking for coffee in the morning. After trying a few places, we settled on Taste as our go-to spot, even though it was a bit farther. Good coffee and friendly service.
