Food & Drink in Dundee
Dundee’s food and drink scene is transforming at a dynamic pace. Contemporary restaurants and enterprising bistros sit alongside cool coffee houses, tasteful cafes, craft beer bars and good food shops.
In turn, the city’s longer-established food and drink businesses have been inspired to assert their part in the flourishing new identity, helping to bridge Dundee’s rich heritage with its exciting future.
Over the past 2 years over 30 new bars, restaurants, cafes and drink producers have opened in the city mainly by independents and we see that very much as our USP.
The Tourism Strategy is set to grow the value of tourism from £155m to £185m by 2020 and one of the key target markets is Food Loving Culturalists. https://food.list.co.uk/guides/dundee-larder
