by | Nov 11, 2016 | News | 0 comments

Dobbies Garden Caf? in Dundee came out on top at the Quality Caf? Food Awards, winning in the Independent Caf? from a Multiple Chain category. The award, which was presented by Gareth Gates, recognised the caf? for its high quality food and service.

The Garden Caf? has been a popular local spot since it opened in 2014. It offers freshly cooked breakfasts, sandwiches and main meals, along with its famous cakes, scones and afternoon teas.

Anthony Hester, head of restaurants at Dobbies, said: ?I?m delighted the Garden Caf? has won this award. As our first stand-alone caf?, the Garden Caf? has received brilliant feedback from our customers on the delicious food, service and atmosphere. It is fantastic to be recognised with such a prestigious award.?

Helen Lyons, group publisher at Metropolis Business Media who organise the event, said: ?What sets the Q Awards apart is the impartiality and rigour of the judging process, which rightly sits at the heart of everything we do – it means people buying products with the ?Q? mark know they are choosing the best in the market.?

Dobbies Garden Caf? is located at the Kingsway Tesco Extra and is open from 8am until 7pm Monday to Saturday 8am to 6pm on Sundays serving breakfast and lunch, along with tea, coffee and cakes. This Christmas, Dobbies Garden Caf?, along with the restaurant at the garden centre in Dundee, is running a competition to find Dundee Star Baker. The winning recipe will be featured in both cafes from the 2nd to the 4th of December to raise money for Teenage Cancer Trust. Full details of the competition available at
