It's a shame the upstairs restaurant closed - this was one of the best places in town to eat. Small, friendly with a fantastic menu always expertly prepared. A real loss to the town. Not so keen on the cafe downstairs but the home baking is good to take away.

Went in for a coffee and some lunch as I liked the look of the place, looks like a proper cafe but also nice enough to take the family there. Food was of a high standard and the service was friendly, would highly recommend for a bite to eat.

I like to go to this cafe when I'm in Troon because the coffee (they use Illy) and ice cream are excellent. The other food is fair value but nothing special. The last time we were in we had scones which were nice but let down by cheap, gummy jam. However the girls who work here are always pleasant and... More

Called in here for a light lunch after visiting the shoe shop next door. The hearty broth was excellent, hot and tasty. My husband had the home made steak pie which he said was absolutely lovely, the meat was very tender and tasty. The coffee, illy, was as expected, very good. The service was very good, helpful, welcoming and polite.... More

On return from a family bereavement, we popped into The Venice cafe for a bite to eat before boarding our ferry back to Ireland. Myself, and my elderly parents were not even greeted by the person working behind the counter. There were no other customers in the cafe at the time. We found ourselves a comfortable table and looked through... More

We decided to eat in the cafe when we were visiting family in Troon - being fairly new to the area our relatives weren't sure about it but it looking nice. As there were 6 of us we asked about putting 2 tables together (the answer was no!!, 2 people would have to sit elsewhere). What a welcome - especially... More

We have popped in here for lunch a few times when we have been visiting Troon and it is a not bad wee place for lunch. Had the afternoon tea a few times which is really good value given the number of sandwiches and cakes! Tried one of the panini's last week which was also pretty tasty. The place is... More

Went for lunch, and had freshly cooked scampi and chips. It was very tasty as it was cooked to perfection, which is quite a rear event even in expensive hotels. The service was friendly and efficient. Sunday lunchtimes have been problem with lack of staff in the past, where service has been somewhat slow. Probably difficult to get it right.... More
