My friend & I often visit for a light lunch. Convenient in the city centre. Staff friendly. Bakery is always very busy. Lovely counter display of cakes.

I used to go here very regularly and get the odd cake for my lunch, but prices and sometimes the sizes don't feel worth the money any more. A lot cheaper to get a few cakes at the supermarket instead.

We have been buying the frozen gateaus for many years, the selection is fantastic as is the quality. Our kids have grown up on these cakes and now expect on any family occasion..."where's the strawberry cake?" If you don't believe me, try it.

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...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...More

Hi Carl. It is a short walk from the port yet still in the city centre. A great place to sample the local culinary delight!

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.
