We popped in here on a lovely day in early August and enjoyed some delicious sandwiches, tea and ice cream at a reasonable price. The service was good, everyone was very pleasant, certainly worth a visit.

We enjoyed a delicious light lunch here - the butternut squash soup was really tasty as was the scone that I had with it. Unfortunately it was the last scone and the baguette which was the alternative bread with the soup was not in the same league. The cafe was very busy indeed - but I guess August is peak... More

Good thing this place is signposted from the main road, otherwise we never would have found it. I dropped in here with a friend on a rainy day this early August. It looks like a modest house from the outside, but the cafe, small as it is, is really nicely decorated and homely. The service (by a lady we assumed... More

We stopped here on a rainy day for a light lunch and to warm up. This little gem has some of the best coffee in Scotland. We spoke of it a month later when we were heading home from our trip. The staff are polite and helpful and we had a lovely lunch of homemade soup and sandwiches. An excellent... More

I visited here with a few friends on the strength of the reviews here. I'm sorry to say I was somewhat disappointed. We all ordered the "Full Scottish" breakfast which consisted of two rashers of bacon, a flat square sausage thing, black pudding, eggs, toast and tea/coffee. The coffee was not very pleasant. It tasted old and not freshly brewed... More

Very nice little place. Very friendly staff and freshly prepared food. Small but good atmosphere. Would have had the homemade soup if the temperature had been cooler:-)

This little stop proved to be really great. The shopping in front of the cafe' had wonderful prices on its products. A lot of what we bought in the shop was much higher when we saw it somewhere else. The food is scrumptious and filling. Pleasantly surprised!!

Visited because of other reviews and still impressed. Everything we had (sandwiches, cake, drinks) was excellent quality, including the service. Car park quite small but free public car park close by. Thought from the outside that it might be a 'beans and chips' type cafe but inside is very charming, fresh ingredients, good choice and more like a bistro in... More

Ordered two coffees, was asked if we wanted small or large, asked what size the large was, told the mug was large so order 2. Got two cups!! The coffee was awful, so strong and didnt smell fresh. At £2 each not worth the price couldnt drink it. Being a local I wouldnt recommend to any tourists sorry.

We are very sorry, surprised and extremely disappointed that you have felt the need to write such a negative 1 star review of our Café. We and our staff are very proud of our coffees and can honestly say that in nearly 5 years of trading we have never before had a negative coffee review. If you take the time... More
