Sweet Dates in Dundee
Dundee is known as the City of Discovery, so what better place to uncover some hidden gems when it comes to indulging in sweets and treats with your sweetheart?
This city is bursting with energy, and with so much to see and do, sometimes you and your date will need a little pick-me-up.
Here are 5 places in Dundee bound to give you a sugar rush…
40 Gray St, Dundee DD5 2BJ
Situated in the picturesque seaside town of Broughty Ferry, a mere 15 minute drive from Dundee’s city centre, Visocchi’s has been a popular destination for couples since it opened in 1954.
This family-owned cafe is famous for its award-winning ice cream and authentic Italian fare. Grab a sundae to share and watch the world go by.
12 Whitehall Street, Dundee, DD1 4AF
This is an old school Scottish tea room for the ages. Founded in 1919, FIsher and Donaldson has retained the charm, warmth, and personality you’d expect of a fifth generation family bakery. Their St Andrews branch was (apparently) frequented by Will and Kate, so the cakes come with a Royal seal of approval.
And when the Fudge Doughnut has its own page
on their website, you know you’re in good hands!
5 Crichton St, Dundee, Dundee City DD1 3AP
Almost smack bang in the middle of a number of attractions, including the soon-to-be opened V&A Dundee and the RRS Discovery
, and only a stone's throw from the Overgate Shopping Centre, Redberry is the perfect pit stop when out and about in the city centre.
Serving up an eclectic mix of milkshakes and ice creams, you’ll both be spoiled for choice. In a relatively short space of time, Redberry’s menu has gained a popular local following, and after your first sip of their delicious Oreo milkshake, you’ll see why!
4 City Square, Dundee, DD1 3BA
The first thing that will strike you when walking into Henry’s is the smell of freshly ground coffee. This is a proper coffee house, independently owned with a real focus on quality and service.
Handily located in the city’s Seagate area, a cool and relaxed atmosphere awaits. This is the perfect alternative to a Costa or a Starbucks. And with regular live music, it’s a great place to hang out and share a slice of Kit-Kat Cheesecake.
327a Brook Street, Broughty Ferry, Dundee, DD5 2DS
Back to Broughty Ferry with this one. Chambrier is fast gaining a reputation for their mouthwatering crepes. Freshly and authentically prepared, and complemented by air roasted coffee, these crepes are made with only natural ingredients.
Staring longingly into one another’s eyes with a mouthful of Nutella is definitely underrated, so give it a go in this intimate seaside town cafe.
