St Andrews Coffee Shops
A typical outside cafe at St. Andrews
In the quaint little town of St Andrews, which at the time of writing is flowing with visitors from all over the world - there are a number of coffee shops with outdoor seating where you can watch the world go by and listen to all the different accents and 'people watch'.
This, combined with the ancient buildings and the gentle noise of slow moving cars on the cobbled stones, is something worth experiencing.
Of course there is also Starbucks (why, oh why do they still use those heavy workman's mugs which do their excellent coffee no justice!) and Costa Coffee (who use proper cups!) both having very friendly staff and quality coffee. During term time these can be full of students with Apple Macs and buzzing with conversation.
These coffee shops are easily found in the town and you can buy snacks and even meals.
In all of them I have encountered friendly young staff and although at times the snacks can be pricey they are good value as you can spend time enjoying the whole experience.
