Go to Jessies if you want fab cake and cuppy. Children more than welcome in the 'kids' room where there is a huge cupboard with lots of toys to keep them occupied.
Cakes are to die for and the specials board always has some lovely treats on them.
Not just cakes though - soups, sandwiches, paninis etc
Dont come here if you are on a diet food is too good to resist!!!

Located in the city centre of Dundee's new waterfront development, Marco Polo is the ideal place to go.
It can be perfect for a short business lunch or a meal with loved ones for a special occasion. Open from lunch till late, Marco Polo believes it is different from the rest, it shows elegance, friendly service along with staff that strive to give you the best experience in fine dining.
Favorite Dish: Enjoyed the Sicilian chicken in the Marco Polo sauce and definately try the mezes starters
Very "modern" minimalist decor. Good.
Friendly, quick & professional service.
Good food with a decent choice even at lunchtime.
Pleasant outlook over City Quay - redeveloped area with shops, restaurants and offices. Restaurant is in the 4* Apex City Quay Hotel, so easy free parking even tho' its in the city centre.
Just been back (Dec 10) almost 3 years after my last visit. I had a Christmas Sunday lunch with 7 friends. Really good! I had potted crayfish, venison in a cherry sauce and a prune parfait. Only £17.50 with coffee. Thoroughly enjoyed it!
Favorite Dish: I had a salad to start - mozzarella with 4 kinds of tomato (sundried, yellow, "beef" and normal). Excellent.
Then Malaysian chicken curry. Again excellent.
This all you can eat buffet restaurant is always busy. Staff are friendly and efficient, food tasty & new batches freshly cooked regularly, pleasant decor & ambience.
Set price varies, dependant on whether you are having lunch or dinner and also time of week.
There is usually a choice of 2 soups plus a varied selection of starters such as spring rolls, wonton, ribs, chicken satay etc, with dishes such as crispy duck pancakes or salt n pepper prawns added for evening service. Main courses are varied, everything from lemon chicken to beef curry, again extra dishes like garlic squid are added in the evening. There is a full range of accompaniaments such as rice & noodle dishes on offer as well as a salad bar. Desserts include icecream, banana fritters, mango pudding, jelly, cake or gateau and fresh fruit salad.
Favorite Dish: Mango pudding - a set mango dessert (think jelly/blancmange but fruity) look out for the less frequently available coconut version too.
I'm by no means an expert to Thai cuisine but this place seems to do it very well. Whilst quaffing down a really good wine we witnessed several groups take their seats after us and most seemed to be repeat business who were still exited about the meal ahead. The food when it arrived was excellent and certainly made our visit to the city all the more memorable.
Favorite Dish: I'd sizzling prawns to start (soz, can't remember the exact name) then green thai chicken curry with coconut rice. It was truly superb!
Clean, bright, modern place. Decent menu, reasonable prices. Its located on a leisure park (cinema, ice rink, hotel, fast food etc), so good access and parking.
Favorite Dish: I had a chicken curry with chili + potatoes, rice, paratha. Very good.
This homey place in the village of Auchmithie, just up coast from Arbroath, is a curious and friendly restaurant. It is well known for its smokies, which seem to be popular in this area and unknown elsewhere. Give them a try; unique and tasty.
There is a small trail leading down to the coast from town - nice for stretching your legs before or after a meal.
This restaurant - which is beside the Rep Theatre, is a lovely Chinese, perfect for a pre theatre dinner, ideal for couples and larger tables. The staff are always welcoming and happy to help.
Favorite Dish: We like the Mussels in Black Bean sauce to start and the Mongolian Beef for main. Nothing is bland but nothing is too heavy tasting either.
Forget ambience and seating this is a no frill fast food joint located just around the corner from Fatsams (just follow the crowds and the smell). What awaits you a taste sensation of high fat fast food at its best. This place does some business when the nightclubs finish. What better way to end a night off than to indulge in some quality fast food.
Favorite Dish: By far it had to be the (Healthy option) of chips, cheese and coleslaw and capped off with one of their tasty and quite large cheese burgers. Forget McDonalds this is the place for you.
Small retaraunt with a real atmosphere, friendly staff, HUGE plates of food, and all at one of the best prices you will find, my family have used it for 18 years and never had Deli Belly yet!
Favorite Dish: Beef, green peppers and black bean sauce, has all the best bits of chinese in it, beef, peppers, spices and rice!
Al Faroouq, York Place ,Perth. Very nice Indian to sit in or take away. Prices not cheap but worth it. Buffet nights Mon-Thurs. Excellant Value. Under some listings maybe in County Place.
Al Farouq looks after everyone if in doubt sya you got the info of Graeme Lumsdens web site
Favorite Dish: Chicken Nentara Hot with cloves
also Turkish Kebab House (round the corner from Farooq
Very clean. Very reasonable and not too far from the youth hostel or bus or train station.
Favorite Dish: Miixed Kebab with as many extra Pittas as you like. No sit in but extra friendly proprietor or his son and there are plenty palces nearby to stop and eat. North Inch? South Inch?
Not a restaurant: The Samraaj Indian Take away, Strathmartine Road ... they deliver so take the time to give them a phone and order some of the best Indian food in Dundee. You'll never get a carry out from anywhere else in Dundee again!!
Superb taste. The building may look rubbish but don't judge a curry by the building??
Favorite Dish: Chicken Bhuna (get a meal for two for under £10)
