choose the fishy stuff!

More a cafe than a restaurant, but well worth a visit to try anything with fish in it! Why? Because Eyemeouth is just down the road and they still land fish there. The cullen skink (creamy fish soup if you are not Scottish) was excellent. Not as creamy as some (which is probably a bonus) and topped... read more

Visited one Saturday for brunch whilst walking around the gorgeous coastline. We couldn't have asked for a nicer "cafe" experience. All the food came quickly and was tasty and fresh. The soup was tasty and paninis were spot on. We couldn't resist the mint choc chip slice and the marvellous Victoria sponge. The staff were friendly too. If your in... More

Stopped for breakfast on coastal route to Edinburgh. Lovely location by the harbour and very fiendly staff. Breakfast was cooked how i liked it. Bacon, egg sausages, tomatoe beans and toast with a lovely cuppa coffee. Will go back again in warmer weather and sit outside.

Amazing location. Warm welcome amd very helpful staff. Warm and welcoming surrounding. Good choice of food and Gluten free options. Would have loved a real coffee instead of filter which is the only small downside. Would recommend

We had just walked from Coldingham, so called in for a cuppa. Too early for any food, but we liked what we saw, so we continued our walk to St Abbs Head and on our return called back for some food and a drink. The 4 of us had the Cullen Scunk, very nice and very filling. Staff lovely. Cosy... More

What a fabulous little place this is for either coffee or lunch. The cullen skink was delicious as were the other soups and the Mars Bar slice was a very naughty but delicious treat. In our week at St Abbs we visited Ebbcarrs a number or times. Unfortunately, being January, we didn't have the pleasure of being able to sit... More

Great little harbour café with food to die for. I travel from Edinburgh throughout the year to this great little den by the sea. The soups and cakes are superb, along with all the other food on offer. Take a trip to St Abb's and try it for yourself. Café is right by the harbour with lovely views. Cullen skink... More
