They really know how to brew a perfect coffee. Also the croissants and cakes are excellent. Lots of local students in there, nice electro-swing music in the background. Little games like backgammon are there. Perfect place to spend a lazy morning.

Nice little cafe, decent location and serves excellent croissants. Get here early and sit out on the bench in the sunshine. Doubtful you'll get a seat inside as it's always busy when we've been past. Only downside is it's pretty cramped

Friendly staff and delicious cake with a big mug of tea. Informal seating area with a comfortable sofa.

It's a bit small but I got there just before the morning rush today and the coffee and chocolate pastry thing I had were just divine. Highly recommened.

Tiny wee place that sells the best coffee, vegan brownies, good sandwiches. Always busy, but worth the two minute walk from St*****ks and P**t

First visit here, always busy when we passed so decided to have a coffee and a panini. Very popular with golfers, student types and locals. Very tasty coffee and paninis. Sat on a stool by the window and people watched. Will be back next time...More

We rented a house in St Andrews and found ourselves looking for coffee in the morning. After trying a few places, we settled on Taste as our go-to spot, even though it was a bit farther. Good coffee and friendly service.

We nipped in here on Sunday for brunch. We had walked past the cafe over a number of days and its always busy. All types. Golfers. Students. Holidaymakers. Friendly service from a group that appear to have a set clientele. We had a lovely coffee...More

The best coffee in St. Andrews. Very busy but well worth the wait with a quaint setting and friendly staff.

Taste serves great coffee, but the service is often very poor. Staff are almost always too busy chatting with friends to bother with the customers, who seem a distraction to them. Has a nice homely, comfortable, if ramshackle feel to it.
