You will be delighted to hear that Café Panola is now fully open again, indoors and out!

Our menu is temporarily reduced to the best sellers and our hours will be 10am to 4pm with last orders for hot food at 3.30pm. Although the café staff will be finishing at 4pm, you are welcome to sit in the café until the shop closes at 5pm.

We will also offer our ever-popular afternoon tea (pre-booking required the day before please by calling 0131 440 0895)

We are continuing to use 2m distancing throughout the shop and cafe until further notice  to maintain a spacious, safe and comfortable feel in all areas. 

We are legally required to have everyone’s contact details each day so if you have a garden circle loyalty card for us to scan that’s perfect! If you don’t have one yet you can get one in the garden centre before you come to the café.

For the moment we have unfortunately had to remove the kids play area.

Dogs are welcomed in the same area as usual and also outside.

As you can imagine it’s not a perfect situation compared to usual in Café Panola so please bear with us whilst we all adjust to this version of the new normal.

Fresh, homemade food is at the very heart of our café. Served in bright surroundings overlooking the Pentland hills, our ingredients are locally sourced and all of our eggs are free range.

Our freshly prepared dishes and home baking are available every day, and our menu also includes delicious gluten free and vegan options.
