Imported "home" bakes in Stonehaven

Pieces of hard plastic in my lemon meringue pie imported from Edinburgh…and don't know about you, but I really have a problem with the carbon footprint of cakes being delivered all the way from the south of England which is where the carrot cake supposedly comes from….something very wrong with this... read more

We stopped by to have some lunch in Stonehaven from our trip from Aberdeen and what a delightful surprise we had! Delicious home made style cuisine, amazing cakes and deserts and very friendly personnel! A must try!

Lovely cafe. Very pleasant surroundings and the friendliest staff ever. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was first class. This was the best All Day Breakfast I've ever had and very well priced. Will definitely be back.

Okay for a quick bite to eat or a drink but a strange, hostile environment and a very overpriced menu for a cafe. The menu is also very weird to look at, don't usually trust a cafe that has pictures of their food on the menu and just in general an unappealing menu. Quite a shame as it used to... More

I quite often pop in for a bite to eat in Maggie Mays through the Week if I have been busy at work and skipped lunch. I have flirted with the menu and settled on the steak baguette as my usual but would happily try the whole menu again. Pleasantly surprising was the mussels which were really tasty and cooked...

Warm, friendly staff. The specials changed each day we were there. Maggie May's is small so get there early to get a seat. A lovely spot in Stonehaven.

This little restaurant is situated very nicely almost in the center of Stonehaven. Myself and my husband went there for a morning coffe and something to eat while we were waiting for our son to get ready for footbal game near by. The place is so very cosy and nice! The service was maybe on a little bit slow side... More

After a disastrous try at lunch at a nearby garden centre (see review on here), we opted for Maggie Mays. We had been a few times and always found it to be good. It is under new management (May 2014). The staff are very friendly & welcoming and actually took time to chat. The service was equally good with the... More

Often have my Sunday breakfast at the Blue Moon in Stonehaven, but this morning the kitchen was not serving breakfast, so decided to try Maggie May's on the Square instead. Maggie May's breakfast was terrific - 2 sausages, bacon, an egg, black pudding, mushrooms and two hash browns, toast and coffee for GBP 8.95 and great quality. The coffee was... More
