On visit to Dundee to visit family we decided to have a wander around Dobbies one afternoon. My husband suggested we have a hot drink so we decided on a cappuccino each and then we spotted the scones.....they were huge so we decided to share one and it was delicious. It was £2.10 for one but then we were sharing... More

Personally, I will never understand why Dobbies cafe at Ethiebeaton by Monifieth is so busy. The food is generally overpriced and hot food often looks a bit dried out from having to sit under heat lamps since the format is cafeteria style and food is not cooked to order other than things like toasted sandwiches. The real problem, however, is... More

The cooked breakfast was very disappointing! The food was overcooked, greasy & hard to chew! The hot drinks were good & the place was clean but food was disappointing.

Breakfast - good selection of items and good value but not very hot. The service has never quite worked here though it's better than it was. Not the fault of the staff. Felt they do not have enough space to plate up. Cakes and scones look great but no idea how they taste - wrong time of day

Also bought a LARGE PLAIN scone....which was under cooked so returned it & got a LARGE FRUIT scone in exchanged....but... More

My friend and I used the restaurant today, as we have on many previous occasions and to say the food was appalling was an understatement - my friends soup was cold, therefore it had to be returned and the lamb hotpot I ordered was full of gristle - really disappointing we will be looking for somewhere else to meet in...
