VERY quaint and sweet - great food ! Just a nice short walk from our hotel - along the River Tweed! Between Peebles and Innerleithen in Cardrona.

Called in for a snack at this no nonsense cafe. Friendly atmosphere. Busy with locals and cyclists. The homemade soup was excellent.as where the cheese scones and they are not expensive.

A charming cafe on Innerleithen High Street, ideal for walkers, cyclists and anyone that is simply passing by. The cafe offers a wide range of snacks and meals as well as a delicious range of cakes.

I visited Whistlestop Café on many occasions when staying in Innerleithen. The décor is in line with the name of the café. I enjoyed great coffee and various dishes for lunch. Quality is the way I would describe the food and service from the girls....More

Quaint cafe. Nice atmosphere and good menu. Unfortunately service was indifferent. Soup was tasty and cater well for kids. Would recommend.
