Stopped in for a late lunch today and found both the food and the service very good. This wasn't our first visit and we have never been let down! Portion sizes are generous and food is very tasty. The owner/chef is always cheerful, friendly and seems genuinely happy in his work. We will definitely be back!

My friend and I have visited cafe by the park on several occasions and the standard of food and service is very high. We always love a wee taste of the soup and the food and cakes are lovely. Definitely worth a visit then a walk in the glen.
