Cute little Cafe

A very warm welcome in a cute cafe overlooking the harbour. Drinks and cakes were well priced and tasty. A good range of snacks and hot food.The decor is bright and cheery and the waitress was a delight. One minus point - the unisex toilet has a single cloth towel not a hand dryer or paper towels.

If you want to visit a unique and interesting place go to Dunure harbour and castle. Visit the harbour side cafe for coffee, snacks, cakes scones plus lunches and soup.

Great little coffee shop on the harbour front. Perfect for morning coffee take-aways to sit by the harbour or take to the castle. Friendly efficient staff.

Stopped at Dunure when touring the Ayrshire coast, had a pit stop at this lovely Coffee shop, Excellent cakes and the service was very good. This is a popular shop very busy but plenty of tables.

We stumbled across this quaint little coffee shop while out sight seeing, nearly missed it so doubled back and so glad we did. On entering we received a friendly welcome and ordered coffee but reasonable price meals, snacks and ice creams etc are also available. I actually gave in and ordered a slice of Turkish delight cheesecake and am so... More

We were so happy to see this little cafe selling ice cream, and even though they had just closed, he let us in to buy our ice cream...£4 for two of the smallest tubs of ice cream I have ever seen, which also had false bottoms!. That will be the last time I will buy ice cream there.

Typically visiting small places like this, shops, cafes and restraunts will charge a small fortune. I can never understand why because at reasonable prices more people will eat thus more cost-effective. We had a sandwich and coffee at this lovely little cafe and sat out on the benches outside. Simple food but unfortunately so many places get the simple things... More

What a cracking little gem! As the rain was blown sideways, right next to the picturesque harbour.... We stopped for a spot of lunch. Some of the best lentil soup that's past our lips! A massive this up from our 13 month old too! Well worth fighting against the weather to go for lunch. Great value too!

Found the cafe after visiting the castle in dunure. Loved it so much we went back twice and we're treated to a French bagpipes player on the harbour wall. lovely food and welcoming staff for very little cost.
