Pleasant modern country house decor, lots of natural light, good range of choice on menu. One gluten-free cake option. Three gluten-free options on main menu and same on children's menu. Children's menu included macaroni, omelette, chicken burger and scampi. Staff pleasant and welcoming.

Hi, thanks for your review and nice comments, the staff are always pleased to hear great feedback. There are normally 2 or 3 gluten free home made cakes on offer, perhaps you missed the meringues and rhubarb sponge that looks like a normal cake and tastes fab. There are 3 gluten free options available plus our daily soup and all... More

Could not believe our luck on coming across this amazing place on a wee day trip to Callander. As we have a little yorkie we tend to look for cafe's with outside seating or hotels with beer gardens. This is a beautiful place very clean with fab decor. The staff without exception were friendly, efficient and professional. We were shown... More

Only the foolish visit Callander on the May Bank holiday**, and the town was mobbed. However we found the cafe, and were soon relaxing away from the shoppers and other tourists. The cafe is dog friendly, but they have their own area away from the food, so are not under your feet. We didn't stay long - just enough to... More

Very nice cafe, very clean and run efficiently. Staff were exceptionally friendly and they are dog friendly. The dogs benefit from baskets, fresh water and there are even biscuits for them in a tin for you to help yourself. We only had tea and coffee but the food looked amazing, cakes looked home made. Recommended stop for anyone.

What a lovely place. My family and I were in the Trossachs for the week and found the Cafe on our first day. The staff fitted us in even though they were very busy and our dog was welcome too. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. Brilliant coffee. The home made cakes, wow! The rocky road was my favourite,... More

Popped into cafe Circa on a couple of occasions with a family of 7 and our dog whilst on holiday. We were made to feel really welcome and so was our dog. The food was delicious as was the cakes which are all home baked. Can't praise the staff in this restaurant enough to be honest.

During a visit to the area we happened to have coffee at Circa at the antique centre at Doune. We mentioned that we were going to callander and the staff advised us of their more recent enterprise at cafe Circa at the Atrium. We were not disappointed. We were warmly welcomed.

On my initial visit I was very impressed, but when I returned to visit the clothing store downstairs on Saturday I was refused access to Cafe Circa toilets, despite the fact that I have been a regular customer of their predecessor, the Atrium, their restaurant in Doune, and the clothing store downstairs CCW for over a decade. I had been... More

We are sorry to hear of your complaint Jacqui, as the owners of the cafe circa above ccw our fairly new team wouldn't have known you as a customer of ccw as it is a separate business and even as you were a regular of the previous incarnation at the cafe premises, none of the staff are the same, i...

Cafe Circa at the Atrium is a smart table service licenced restaurant, newly refurbished and spacious with comfortable seating and couches. The relaxing warm dining room has a great ambiance and nice views of Ben Ledi and the Crags. The food is freshly prepared and cooked to order, gluten free dining is the norm not the exception. Our menu is small and seasonal, guaranteed fresh. We use quality meats from an award winning local butcher and fresh Scottish landed fish from award winning local fish monger. The Home baking is done in-house daily and won a Scottish baking award last year.
