Today was a beautiful drive through the Kingdom of Fyfe and back to Dundee for more nominations. Jessies was first on our list and wow what a place. Overlooking Broughty Ferry on an elevated position this superior Manor house has been carefully renovated into an amazing Tearoom/Cafe. Jessies overlooks their very own vegetable grounds which supply the kitchen with fresh herbs and leaves .On entering Jessies you find a bright ,airy and definately "Pink" room by by- passing the extensive display of cakes in the inner hall. The young and attentive staff give this place a trendy feel .Very clean and a good light lunch and High-tea menu. When we arrived it was full to capacity and the owner Ross was struggling to turn people away. The House is a work in progress with a "3rd" room now being renovated for more room.There is also a room for parents and children. I was overwhelmed with the not one but two boxes of cakes i was given to sample at my leisure and this alone proved confidence in their bakers ability.Three bakers take responsibility for the excellent cakes, Mary-Jane,Alison and Nicola. When we left we looked around the exceptional Garden centre and Farm Shop and i have to say that the plants and flower arrangements on display including the cut flowers were the best i have seen in any garden centre. The vegetables were the biggest i have seen also especially the "Dirty carrotts and Beetroot"!!! HUGE Anyway i digress as usual back to the CAKES.They were wonderful particularly the blueberry iced sponge and the Florentine-FAB.The Apple and Caramel iced cake was a new one to me and was incredible. I can not recommend this Place highly enough. Well done Ross and the gang.
