Off the High Street so, easy to miss for the day tourist as a place for coffee, lunch when there are so many other places on the High St. What the Glasshouse Cafe has to offer is different. A nice place to sit outside, weather permitting. Child friendly and spotless toilet facilities. Friendly staff.

We popped in for lunch today as sun was coming out and I wanted to sit outside somewhere and I knew the kids would be able to run about till their lunch was served. Ordered basic cheese toastie and a cheese panini and was told no coleslaw left so they were putting a few chips on the plates instead! Seemed... More

Modern cafe with lovely views of the gardens near the Palace. Disabled access and internal lifts to all floor allows you to view the many exhibitions. Low level is very inviting and has some history of the area around the walls. Local jewellery makers wares are on view.

We have visited the glass cafe often for coffee. The weather was so good today we sat outside. It was so quiet and peaceful away from the traffic of the high street. We had cup cakes which were delicious. Service is always very efficient and pleasant.

Low quality food, service was unforgivable and pricing obviously ridiculous for what it was. A lot of potential considering the location and outdoor seating, but the management clearly haven't taken advantage of this and have decided instead to overprice everything. They market themselves as high quality, however there are numerous other establishments in Linlithgow which provide said quality of food... More

This place has great potential but sadly does not even try. The coffee I had was weak and tasteless and far to expensive. There are too many cafes in Linlithgow, and all of them are better than this place. Even the greasy spoon on the high street. It would not take much to really make this a great place to... More
