Pacamara Food & Drink

302 Perth Rd, Dundee DD2 1AU, UK

Editor's Review

Pacamara took over where once stood one of Dundee's first independent coffee spots, Espress Oh!, picking up where it left off with its focus on speciality roasters, whilst also expanding on its food menu, making it one of the west end's most popular spots. Taking inspiration from the coffee houses of Melbourne, Pacamara has a very chic aesthetic — wooden floorboards paired with cutesy chandeliers and local art adorning the walls, celebrating Dundee's history as well as Scotland's growing coffee scene. Their guest espressos are taken from Staffordshire's Has Bean, and can be prepared as espressos or aeropress, with clearly displayed tasting notes just above the counter. No fuss, just good coffee. 

Pacamara's a great lunch spot too, and is proud of its position in the local area. All its meat is sourced from the butchers, literally over the road, while they also stock beers from two local breweries, 71 Brewing and Law Brewing Company, both of whom are also within spitting distance. They're famed for their burgers — the Reuben Burger, in particular — but there's plenty of lighter options too. This feels like a very welcoming, community cafe, that's thought just that little bit harder about what it produces — a bit off the beaten track, but a short walk from the University makes it a popular student haunt.
