Biographical Info

The Buchlyvie Pottery & Coffee Kiln Cafe are based within the rural Stirlingshire village of Buchlyvie.

If you are searching for a quaint tea shop or coffee shop in the Stirling area, and would enjoy being surrounded by beautiful handcrafted local Scottish pottery and gifts, then this is the perfect venue.

The pottery and kiln sit at the back of the shop, with the potter working away, crafting an eclectic mix of homeware and gift ideas.



The Coffee Kiln Cafe is a cosy place, with a warm ambience and relaxed vibe. There is outside seating for sunny days and the for the small group of road cyclists that often pop by for much-needed homebaked cake to fuel them. Inside, the tables sit within the pottery shop, so guests are surrounded by wonderful hand crafted pottery, gifts & cards to peruse while they wait for their order.



The menu is kept simple and fresh, with all dishes lovingly prepared within the kitchen. Nothing is ‘bought in’ and all the food is cooked from scratch daily. The coffee kiln is passionate about the food it puts on your table, and that is evident from the care taken and that first taste.

There are Specials most days, but expect to find superb dishes on offer every day;

  • mushroom tagliatelli, cooked in garlic & tarragon cream sauce, and topped with rocket
  • homemade 8oz beef burger
  • soup of the day with freshly baked bloomer bread
  • hummus & olive platter with gammon, brie & warm pita bread
  • wraps & pita & baked potato selection
  • open toasted sandwich with balsamic steak & caramelised red onion

All the cakes and scones are homebaked and delicious, and go perfectly with a lovely steaming hot mug of tea or coffee.

The Coffee Kiln Cafe serve all their platters, hot drink and cakes on beautiful Buchlyvie pottery dishes.
