So I thought it'd be fun to start a blog series with my favourite local places to eat & drink, you know, just in case anyone is ever in my neck of the woods!! (She says trying to justify going out for breakfast once a week!!)
Somehow, myself & my two good friends seem to be heading out for breakfast on a Monday morning now - not every single week, although it seems to be heading that way! There are so many fabulous places near to us to choose from so I thought I'd start sharing them. The place we visited this morning is totally new to all of us & was on a recommendation of my friend's sister-in-law & it is truly fabulous. In fact, I think I'll go all out & say it's my new favourite eatery!
Welcome to Taypark House, Dundee.
Taypark House on the Perth Road is a former Scots Baronial home dating back to circa 1863 & is Category B Listed, isn't it just stunning? There are several different rooms to eat & drink in, each with slightly different decor but equally as stunning. The rooms are full of quirky decorative items & furniture & I have completely fallen in love with the place!
I'm sorry about the 'toilet' photo but even those were fabulous!! I appreciate that everywhere is fairly new & therefore spotlessly clean at the moment but I love the thoughtful touches of leaving a basket full of nappies & wipes & providing a comfortable tartan armchair in the bay window for breastfeeding mums. Somebody has clearly done their research before doing this place up!
They have 4 suites on the first floor & 2 further rooms on the second floor boasting 180 degree views of the River Tay, which on a glorious day like today, would be stunning! I noticed that they also do a supper club which I might have to investigate further for a certain upcoming birthday & you can hire rooms for private functions too.
We enjoyed a breakfast of pancakes, crispy bacon & maple syrup, which was divine & a total bargain at only £3.50!! They serve Matthew Algie coffee, which I'm a huge fan of & we will most certainly be back soon. We have to try out the lunch menu next!!
I found their menu on their Facebook page.
So, if you're ever in the vicinity of Dundee, I highly recommend a visit here, you'll not be disappointed!
