Could be great....

Dunfermline lacks small cafes and eating places to meet friends for a coffee/glass of wine/cake, this place is clearly trying to fill that gap, but falls short Im afraid. Nice cakes, I admit. Lunch items, just average. Service, just far to slow. On the couple of occasions I have visited I have... read more

We went into Reubens Cafe on Saturday 6th June and everything was fine to begin with. We started off placing our lunch order with pleasant staff member and waited for what seemed an eternity for our order to arrive. Eventually 26 minutes later it did! My husband asked for bread and butter, a different waitress brought only butter to the... More

A friend and I went here for a light lunch and we were extremely disappointed in the food and the service. I ordered the chicken salad sandwich and ended up getting about 4 tablespoons of mayonnaise, two tiny slivers of chicken, and a huge heap of lettuce and green tomatoes slapped between two floppy pieces of bread. And they tried... More

I went for lunch with my parents - they really like the place so they were excited for me to try it. At first it was great - I've got quite restrictive dietary requirements and the waitress was very helpful and chatty. I decided on the scrambled egg and salmon on GF bread. When it came I tasted it and... More

Enjoyed a wee visit.Although none of us opted for the Tattie soup,it looked delicious.We all ordered coffee and scones.On asking the waitress what kind of scones she had the reply was a rather curt 'fruit'.Found this to be a bit off putting.Nevertheless we all enjoyed our scones but would have liked the coffee to be warmer.

Waited a while to be served. Food came luke -warm. When we required coffee and tea we had to wait a while to be served again. When the beveridges came one cup was dirty so server was asked politely to replace this for a clean one. The server snatched the cup away in an aggressive manner. I had read previous... More

Came here for breakfast and left hungry. One member of staff ignored us, and the other spoke to us with such passive aggression, it was really quite flabbergasting. For me, there is nothing worse than rude service, so we promptly took our business elsewhere. I was looking forward to trying this place out, so this was really disappointing. Perhaps on... More
