Satff fridgeWho we are

Heaven Scent is a thriving, award-winning catering and hospitality company with a passion for delicious food, great value and exceptional service. We take huge pride in the friendliness our staff, our ethically and locally sourced produce, our high standards of customer care, and the quirkiness of our touch! We love catering for everyone, and specialise in providing creative gluten-free and multi-allergen-free dishes to ensure a fantastic, stress-free experience for all our customers.

Our story

The Heaven Scent brand began life as Scott Hospitality in 2003. Owner Andrew Scott bought a run down flower shop in Milnathort, near Kinross, and transformed it into a funky coffee shop, realising his vision of bringing cool city living to the countryside. The small shop quickly grew in popularity, and spotting a gap in the market, in 2005 Andrew established Heaven Scent Kitchen corporate and private outside catering. As our reputation grew, we increasingly used our coffee shop menu to influence our corporate and private outside catering menu, so that all our customers know where their food comes from and who it is prepared by.

Heaven Scent was becoming busy, very busy, and needed to expand. The flat upstairs came up for sale in 2014 and we snapped at the opportunity! Just 6 months later we opened Heavens Above catering and events space, specialising in afternoon teas, and private hire for private celebrations and meetings. Keen to make the experience as interesting as possible, we created a secret entranceway so customers make their way through a SMEG fridge door, up an enchanting black and white staircase then into one of three charming rooms.

We then set about transforming the outside space into a Secret Garden, opening in the summer of 2016 with 50 covers. The garden has all the quirky features you’d expect from Heaven Scent, and this gorgeously sunny space is a haven for ramblers, dog walkers and cyclists, as well as those who enjoy a spot of al fresco eating and drinking.

The company has developed year on year to expand and excel, leading to an invitation to tender for the operation of the café at the prestigious new Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries. We were delighted to win the contract, and just three weeks later, in May 2017, we opened the doors to our first customers in this incredible, world-class building.
