Cafe Circa (Abernyte) 2022 : Review

The Visit

I felt like a drive and Perth was on my hit list, so I got up and took a drive to Perth.

Before going to the town centre I stopped by the Scottish Antiques and Arts Centre and popped into Cafe Circa for a spot of lunch.


Bacon, Brie & Cranberry Ciabatta £9.95

I saw a few things that sounded nice, but this caught my eye.

On arrival this looked very nice, and I couldn’t wait to dig right in as I was very hungry.

I took a nice big bite and ohh this was nice….flavour wise just ok as the bacon was the strongest flavour here but overall it was just nice.

Overall todays visit was very nice, I had a wee walk about the antiques part and then had a lovely lunch.

I liked the little shop near the cafe, as they did a lot of really nice looking products.

The Garden Cafe in Gleneagles Hotel (Auchterarder) 2021 : Review

The Visit

My parents were given a wee gift voucher, so I thought I would tag along and also be the driver for the visit.

The Food

A lot of items on the menu looked and sounded very nice.

Today I felt like having a big burger, and to see how here did them.

Birnam Burger £18
Double patty, cheddar cheese, cured bacon, dill pickle, lettuce tomato, skin on fries

My mouth instantly started watering as soon as this arrived, as it smelled really good and looked very good!

I started with the chips.

These had a perfect crunch, and perfectly salted and I could have just had more and more and more of these…so good!!!

No on to the burger…

I took a massive bite and instantly was blown away!!

This was packed with great flavours, the burger very tender and melted in my mouth and along with he bacon and cheese etc

I loved every bite and could have easily downed a second as I didn’t feel bloated after this….which tells me it was good quality and very fresh!

“Hot Chocolate” Cookie £3.00

This sounded very interesting and I had to order it to see what it was like.

The cookies was a nice big size, and looked very nice. It had a hint of cinnamon coming off it, and I couldnt wait to take a bite.

I took a bite and it was very nice, it had a nice crunch to it…it wasn’t too hard or too soft just a nice consistency.

The closer you go to the centre and the cream the softer the cookie got, which for me was really good as it got a lot sweeter.

Overall :

It was lovevly to be back, as its a nice relaxing hotel and cafe.

Todays food was really good, and I would drive all this way again just for the burger!

If your a burger lover you need to check here out, and I am adding here to my Top Restaurants Page.

Patisserie Valerie (Silverburn Shopping Centre) 2021 : Review

The Visit

Today I was taking my gran for a wee bit of Christmas shopping at Silverburn, and we stopped here to get a wee lunch.

The Lunch

I saw they had a seasonal menu and I thought lets get something from that today.

Christmas Club Sandwich £10.25
Grilled turkey, back bacon, plum tomatoes, gourmet salad , mayonnaise, butter, cranberry & mulled spice sauce served in a toasted bloomer with baked fries & served with a side salad.

On arrival this looked and smelled really good, so after a few photos I dug in.

I started with the chips…

These were very nice, not very crispy, a little soft but very nice flavour to them.

Now the sandwich..

Oh this was very nice, I really liked the combination of the flavours.

For me it could have done with more sauce as it was a very dry sandwich, apart from that it was really nice and packed with flavour.

Mince Pie £2.95

I couldn’t leave before having a wee treat and I spotted they sold mince pies….so I had to get one.

This arrived and looked nice and also had a nice smell, oh and it was warm so when I took a bite it was very yummy!

This was very nice and packed with flavour, and that warmth made it very mmmm

Overall :

Overall it was a nice lunch with my gran, and we both had a nice relaxing time and a nice lunch.

As I said my only issue for me was that the sandwich was a bit dry, a bit more sauce and it would have been perfect.
