Madigans staff are very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant itself is quirky with a fantastic atmosphere. You can browse and buy the many books on display, there is something for everyone. We were a company of eight meeting for lunch, some of us had the soup and sandwich option, whilst others had baked potato. There was a great choice of fillings for both and the soup of the day was lentil, it was lovely. We also sampled the home baked cakes, of which there was a good choice, and all thoroughly enjoyed with a cup of coffee. I would certainly recommend a visit to Madigans. We will definitely be back.

Check out Madigan's for lovely caftierre coffees, tasty things to eat and BOOKS BOOKS BOOKS.

The time flies as you browse the shelves of interesting books which are all around the Emporium. Choose from selections marked "Philosophy" "Food" "Scotland" or many others and sit down to read. If you like the books you can buy them and take them home. Too many books at home? Bring them in to be added to Madigan's resources.

Friendly, helpful staff, fun relaxing atmosphere in a little treasure set in the heart of Dundee.

Don't miss it!

A homely wee cafe that also sells some second-hand books. The staff are very nice and welcoming, and the coffee and sandwiches we had were very nice. There is a good range of snacks available. Well looked after and clean, it is nice to support local little enterprises, so please think about it if you are looking for somewhere nice just off the beaten shopping track.
