As we approached the seating desk two large groups pushed past us and were seated. We requested a table for two and could clearly see three such tables waiting for customers. However we were told that there were no tables and we should go and walk round the garden centre and they would call us when they had a table.... More

This place is great. It gets better every time we visit. I had the top hat open sandwich. Needless to say it was huge and delicious to boot. Can't recommend highly enough.

Had a wee visit here today with friends for tea & scones. It was a lovely visit. The Scones and clotted cream was very nice. They have a wide variety of different scones to choose from. The staff were very friendly.

Don't be fooled by the fact it is attached to the Dobbie's, it is not their typical cafe set up. We were very impressed. Family friendly, with fast, friendly staff; we had a lovely lunch as a stopover, to feed our baby, on our way to St Andrews. I really enjoyed my soup/sandwich combo & my husband was pleased with...

My wife and I quite like Dobbies cafes but this one is a bit below their average standard. There seemed to be a lack of staff to keep the place tidy.

Welcome to Le Jardin, where our menu features something to suit everyone's tastes. What better way to warm yourself up on a chilly winter's day than by sitting down to a hearty bowl of our homemade soup or creamy macaroni? Or if you're in the mood for something lighter, you'll be spoilt for choice when you see our eclectic range of crunchy salads.
Perhaps you live locally and feel like treating yourself and a friend to lunch, or maybe you're visiting Kinross-shire on holiday and fancy a melt-in-the-mouth scone washed down by a pot of piping hot tea.
Whoever you are and whatever you like to eat, you'll love Le Jardin.
Our focus is firmly on freshly prepared food that looks and tastes great, so our menu features a wide range of healthy, wholesome snacks, starters and main courses - though, of course, if you're in need of a little treat, you can equally well order a round of sandwiches and a cream cake (or three) for afternoon tea!
Locals and visitors of all ages love our light, spacious restaurant with its gorgeous sunny conservatory. OK, we admit - it's not always sunny in Kinross, but on rainy days you can always use your imagination!
Conveniently situated just off the M90 and adjacent to the local Dobbies Garden Store, the aptly named Le Jardin restaurant is a popular port of call for locals and visitors to the area alike. Why not come and experience our fabulous food and unique atmosphere for yourself soon?
