Called in on a recommendation. We had a tea each and shared a slice of gluten free pear and chocolate cake. Some of the stuff was authentically vintage and the tea was nice...but there are little let downs - like plastic strainers and chairs too...More

Although the cafe had just closed we chanced our luck as it was freezing and the bus back to Edinburgh was an hour off. Warmly welcomed by the owner, pot of tea and two delicious slices of ginger and coconut cake helped restore the feeling...More
