Fisher & Donaldson have such a big name that really doesn't live up to the hype. Previously we had tasted the carrot cake(it was a house guest who gifted it to us) and we were not impressed. The cake looked good but we found it to be all style and no substance. This time we bought some rolls(floury muffin) and... More

I only popped in for a coffee and to kill some time. I left after some kind of toasted local concoction that looked very delicious and fully lived up to expectations. The exotic confectionary on show looked fantastic and I would have taken some home had I got room in my bag. The coffee was very good, the service from... More

Fisher and Donaldson are great bakers - this cafe reflects that.....its not the best set up and atmosphere but the food is decent and the staff are brilliant. The soup was fresh and tasty....

After being at Ninewells on a family matter, we were near the Perth Road shops and decided to park up and find a spot for a "wee cuppie". Two ladies to accompany me, we plumped for F&D in the shopping area, halfway down the way to Dundee, and duly ordered warm pies, strawberry tarts and coconut cookies to make up... More

We were recommended as we were in Dundee and had to try Dundee Cake. My wife and I had their "house" tea and a piece of cake. All very good in a wonderful atmosphere.

I had not been in the centre of Dundee for years, but was very pleased to see that this shop still existed. The selection of cakes and sweet treats is amazing, but the coffee tower is legendary. A pyramid of choux pastry filled with delicious coffee cream and iced with coffee icing, then some more cream and a chocolate button... More

Cafe area is very crammed at busy times. The savoury section of the food bar isn't very varied or tasty. The cakes & chocolates however are to die for & great range of different types of cakes & pastries . Would of received 5* if it was a cafe for cakes only. Quite expensive & chocolates very expensive but very... More

A good place to go for hot chocolate with all the trimmings,other drinks also served and deliciously fattening cream cakes, the only down side it is very small and rather expensive. Two hot chocolate and two cream cakes £10.

In a sea of coffee shops it's nice to find a good quality tea shop that serves up hot tea with s scotch pie and a pineapple cream. I know...... Just couldn't resist it though. Very good and worth s visit.

"Well what can I say" If you want quality that does not disappoint nowadays you have to pay for it that's exactly what Fisher & Donaldson have always offered, just one example they make the best fresh double whipped cream cakes on the planet!

Description
Fisher and Donaldson are Bakeries are very well-known in Scotland for their excellent pastries and cakes. They have a small restaurant in Whitehall Street, where you can order your favourite drink and pastry or cake and read the newspaper. If you have a sweet tooth or love creamy cakes this is the perfect restaurant for you. My favourite is a large hot chocolate and a yummy coffee cream tower.

I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting Dundee.
