Busy little cafe with very attentive staff. Food choice for us was excellent (paninis with different fillings). Too full to sample the lovely selection of goodies this time, will be back.

Another relaxing visit to Tartan Coffee House with a difference. Not the normal run of the mill cafe but an experience of tasteful decor with a selection of tables & chairs with the use of sofas and armchairs as an option.
