What a little gem!

We visited on a cold blustery day and boy are we glad we found it. Delicious fish dishes, great coffee and the staff were so friendly and welcoming. We will definitely return. Highly recommend the crab salad, mackerel pate and Cullen skink. Yum yum and yum

One of my favourite walks is St Abbs lighthouse coastal route. And at the end of the walk we always drop by for the freshest crab sandwiches here and delicious frittes. Lots of excellent home baking too! And it's licensed. Lovely wee place with indoor and outdoor seating.

Enjoyed lunch there in this pretty little fishing village. We had Cullen's Skink for lunch (a sort of fish chowder). As it was a nice day we ate outside & really enjoyed the food. Our dog was able to be at the outside table with us. Make sure you go for a walk along the harbour front & take some... More

Found Ebbcarrs cafe after parking the car at St Abbs. Great little cafe on the harbours edge, substantial menu with well cooked food, and the usual drinks. Small cafe but worth the stop.
