Good food, good cafe, friendly staff, what more could you want from a cafe. Without a doubt the only place I go when I need a snack or drink in St. Andrews

I love the cozy atmosphere at Northpoint and the pancakes are absolutely amazing. I've had the half stack with Nutella, bananas, and whipped cream twice now and both times it was delicious. It gets pretty busy towards lunch time, especially on the weekends, as a lot of students like to eat there but it is definitely worth waiting for a... More

this little cafe is often crowded but it is worth to go there. You can have great breakfast, very good different coffees, snacks, and great cake. During my vacation I went there every day - Love it!

This was our daughters FAVORITE breakfast spot while at the University so we had to go when we visited! It was quaint and the food was delicious and a relative bargain compared to other establishments in St Andrews. Fun to be where Will and Kate used to sit and have coffee!

A busy establishment which is obviously very popular with students. Staff were lovely and friendly but unfortunately the milk in our lattes was far too hot and ruined the taste of the coffee.

I had seen this on Trip Advisor and wanted to go to try the Canadian pancakes with bacon and maple syrup, as I have had this in Canada. You get a stack of 6 pancakes, which divided easily between 3 of us. Pancakes were much bigger than in Canada, so the ladies were unable to eat the whole of their... More

I have heard nice things about this cafe, so decided to try it out when visiting St Andrews. The overall atmosphere was cosy and warm, however, all the other aspects of this venue were very disappointing. My salmon and cream cheese wrap was 80% cream cheese, making it impossible to eat. And the whole cafe was very dirty, menus were... More

I ordered the "american brunch" - the pancakes were a little on the dry side and the bacon was fine... however the eggs. My goodness, some of the scrambled eggs were crusty whilst some had the consistency of soup. All this in one portion is too much for a simple man who wants a simple hearty brunch. I would recommend... More

Popular with locals and students this warm, friendly café is known for its fantastic pancakes (including a gluten-free option) with a wide variety of toppings and there is also a range of fine porridges. For us, the hot chocolate was an absolute winner... rich and sumptuous and for 70p more they will add whipped cream marshmallows and a side cup... More
