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

What a great little cafe, this unassuming place in the Great Angus Town of Forfar. My good lady and I spend a fair bit of time on the road. 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.

The Curry Special is always delicious as are the Home made soups. There is a wide array of panini fillings, sandwiches and croissants. It is extremely difficult to decide which of the wonderful tray bakes and cakes to have and the Apple Caramel pie is scrumptious. The staff are very pleasant and service is prompt.
