Great little cafe/restaurant with the most attentive service anywhere in the region. A real standout in a sector that disappoints so often. Excellent range of food, quality ingredients and satisfying flavours. Inexpensive and right next door to the Meffan Museum, so it ticks all the boxes for day trippers. Combine this with a visit to the Signal Tower Museum and... More

We each had the "Full Monty" consisting two eggs, three rashers of bacon (rhind and fat removed) one... More

Sharmee's Authenticate Chicken Curry is wonderful. But the whole menu has something for everyone and the cakes are to die for. This is a lovely place to eat, always very welcoming, great food and happy smiling efficient staff. Can wait to return.

Passed this little tearoom whilst out on a walk in Forfar and decided to go back at the end of the walk as it looked so reminiscent of times gone by! The staff were all very pleasant and helpful and the selection of cakes and traybakes for our afternoon cuppa was amazing! We intend making this tearoom a regular stop... More

And, needless to say, but we sample a lot of different lunch stops on our travels. All I would like to say about Tiffins of Forfar is... if you find yourself... More

We had a breakfast, cake and cuppa. The staff were attentive and scrupulously clean. Cake was fantastic and the breakfast was great too. The cafe is clean and very well maintained. All staff were friendly and helpful. A real asset to Forfar.
