We had already lunched by the time we reached the Park entrance, but after a stroll on a sunny day, we returned to sit at one of the outdoor tables close to the ornamental Park entrance. We may only have ordered tea, but the keen and enthusiastic guys running this cafe could not have made us more welcome and made... More

A large group of us descended on the cafe, and we had assumed it was your typical coffee and cake place - how wrong we were! Delicious sandwiches, divine Victoria sponge and beautifully presented salad made this the highlight of our day.

Never happened to visit here before but will likely be a favourite now on. Excellent soup & sandwich offer and the fillings on the sandwiches are somewhere between generous to incredible. Loved the touches of sampling the soup of the day in advance and the mini meringues with the tea and coffee. Topped off with friendly service it's certainly worth... More

We found this little cafe by chance and stopped for lunch. The food was excellent, generous portions, home made and well priced. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and we will go back next time we are in the area.

My friend and I visited this cafe for lunch on a shopping trip to the town after reading great reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The staff were so friendly and courteous and the food was delicious. I had the soup, sandwich and drink deal for £6- fantastic value for a lunch! We'll definitely be back to sample the... More

nice wee place, right near the glen. ice creams good and some range of flavours for the size of the place but a wee bit on the pricey side so can get quite expensive if you have a half dozen kids with you. it is small so not a great deal of room for prams or buggys and outdoor seating... More

On entering the cafe you are greeted warmly. Service is polite and helpful, and on each visit we have been asked if we would like to have a sample of the soup of the day, which is a lovely idea. I have recently had to change to a wheat free diet and eating out - especially at lunch times when... More
