A bright friendly environment, perfect for everyone to relax, enjoy themselves and create something wonderful. We have live music on a Sunday afternoon - you can paint, listen to music and eat cake!There's also a kids play corner, so kids can play while parents have a look at the newspaper or meet with friends. It's a very relaxed atmosphere. « less

We've visited this coffee shop several times over the past year or so - sometimes with grandchildren - but the last few times, we have noticed that the play corner in particular could do with a thorough clean. There are crumbs of food in the toy drawers, the toys are often sticky and the available books are falling apart. I... More

We're sorry you felt the cafe was less than clean when you visited. We are being very conscientious about the toys and books, as we felt embarrassed at the thought that they weren't clean. The sofa covers were washed very regularly, but it had got to the point where a lot of the marks just didn't wash out anymore. We'd... More

Best burgers I have ever tasted. You have to wait for a bit while they make it, but it is will well worth it for the high quality food. So far I have had the Moroccan, Thai and Italian burgers - really delicious!

Absolutely fantastic wedding! Amazing how they turned the local café into a glamorous reception. Excellent service, friendly and attentive all the time. All our guests and of course we ourselves were deeply impressed. Thank you so much for making this wedding day the best ever - great job! Heike & Klaus

Went with the family to spend a weekend in the Royal Kingdom of Fife. First time being to Scotland, let alone Fife, we knew little about the area. None the less, we were extremely lucky to stumble across this fantastic cafe. It was a rainy day and an swarm of customers had, like us, had taken shelter from the rain.... More

Good cooked breakfast, pick your own items, I prefer that than leaving the fried tomato and whatever else I don't like. Good strong coffee. Worth a visit.

Enjoyed a lovely meal, but can also have a coffee and a bid of home baking. Children have their own area where there is loads for them to do including decorating their own pottery if they want to.

When we're down the town we always make time to have a coffee & cake in the bright & airy, friendly cafe/restaurant. The food is always excellent & the staff attentive, I wouldn't think of eating anywhere else in Burntisalnd. If you have young kids, no problem, there's lots of "crafty" things for them to do.

'The nicest vicky sponge i have ever had' exclaimed my husband after devouring a huge slab of Victoria Sponge at Potter About Cafe on Sunday. I have to agree it was delicious, as was the chocolate cake. We are seasoned cake eaters and we know a good one when we taste it so believe me you wont be disappointed if... More

We visit Potter About 2 or 3 times a week. It is quite large and is not really like any coffee shop you'll have been in before. Decorate your own pottery and have it fired. Take your small children or grandchildren to the play area. Look for a different present for someone. Drink excellent coffee. Borrow a book. Do your... More
