Visocchi's in Gray Street, Broughty Ferry, was a cafe I went to in the 60's and 70's. These visits took place during the summer months because they were always the outcome of choosing to walk there from Craigie, which was a bit of a trek, so a jaunt specifically for good weather days only.
The 60's trips were family outings to the beach, and we'd stop off at Visocchi's for a treat along the way. This is the only place in the Dundee area I can remember having a Knickerbocker Glory in!
In the early 70's when in my young teens, I then went there with my mates. We'd while away a couple of hours in the summer evenings playing a few tunes on the jukebox and drinking bottles of coke.
Visocchi's is still on the go today.
The above image was taken in 1972.

  1. when it was cross country running at craigie high, we used to stick some money in our gymslips, jump on the ferry bus and nip into visocchi's for a hot blackcurrant before getting the bus back to school and we were never found out!!

  2. I used to go in here in 1972.It used to do good ice cream.

  3. Wow.

    Seeing that sign there with the knife, fork and cup & saucer is like a nostalgic slap in the face! So, so familiar, but completely forgotten about til now.

    Wonder who those two 'Grovies' are?
