“Change? Modernise? Be Damned If I Will.”
Review of The Coffee House

The Coffee House
Ranked #1 of 8 Coffee & Tea in Montrose
Restaurant details
Reviewed May 26, 2017 via mobile

Finding ourselves in the Burgh of Montrose, we chanced upon a cafe we have used before, this very convenient and good old fashioned joint named above... vis: The Coffee House.
To begin properly, it must be said that a stroll around the once thriving and majestic High Street of Montrose is a pointer to the possible if not inevitable future of all such places in Britain with very few being spared the fate of this one. As a retail shopping area, it looks like a slow death.
However, we are here to review this stalwart of this down-trodden street and it is fair to say that cheer and good grace still are alive and well here. We ate a no-frills-but-very-well-presented toastie each and latte and tea at their best. For the meagre price demanded, it was all very well worth it. This cafe, with its cobbles, arches, and interesting history is busy, well managed and the staff are not only friendly and efficient but seem happy to be there at your service and every possible whim. In fact, it goes as far as to cock a snook at the notion which might be current... that you must change and modernise to survive.

Nice for Lunch or for coffee and a cake. The carrot cake is amazing. The gift shop has a lot of different gifts.

Fab place
Lovely coffee and cake.
However, the lady who served us should take a little more care when "placing" the cutlery down. I thought it was just our table but then the lady did the same at another 2 tables.
Saying that, it won't put me off visiting again.

Busy little Cafe in an interesting very old building. A good sized Menu. Lots of nice tray bakes. Lovely homemade soup. Reasonable prices. Plenty of parking around, Worth a visit.

Tucked away in a corner, this lovely coffee shop could easily be overlooked, which would be a pity as it serves the best carrot cake I've had in a long time.
Coffee is good, service is fast & friendly.
