Perth

The Wee Coffee House ( Last Assessed 2015)

Another gorgeous day for Scotland and my drive to Blairgowrie was simply breathtaking through thePerthshire countryside. Blairgowrie is a small town north of  Perth City and has many individual small shops great for browsing around. My destination was to the Wee Coffee Shop in Allan street and the lovely Anne-Marie . Anne -Marie has run this shop for about 4 years and has always been a keen baker . Great atmosphere , great staff here and a lovely welcoming , non pretentious feel about this wee coffee shop. Anne -Marie welcomed me rather nervously with a steady offering of home made cakes all made on her premises by a few different bakers. Each take their own favourites to bake which make for a varied display . I tried a new one on me, which seems to be a favourite ingredient of late ,and that was - Parsnip, Apple and Syrup cake . A very unusual texture but a deliciously light and airy cake full of flavour. The iced gingerbread and theFruit slice both reminded me of the way my gran used to bake and took me back to a warm fuzzy place in a kitchen many moons ago. I loved the way the fruit filling was not taken from a jar but mixed and blended  from seperate fruits to create her own fruit filling. A lovely slice . My favourite by far was the original recipe of Almond , Orange and sherry tart - lovely and boozy and full of flavour . This is a great little shop for home made cakes which are all baked here at this little kitchen . If in the area i would certainly recommend a visit .
