Really friendly service, good menu, mixture of meat, fresh seafood and veggie options.. homemade choices, great soups, scones (the jam is totally awesome!), and overall just great value. Absolutely super for a good stop off when you're in St Abbs.

Visited here on the basis of the trip advisor reviews but was very disappointed. The seafood might be local but the crab sandwich as served on some basic supermarket closed bread with not even a side salad in sight. Very underwhelming.

Popped to St Abbs for a little look around and stumbled across Ebb Carrs . As we were with the dogs we sat outside on the very comfy round tables . We weren't hungry so opted for a couple of lattes . They were hot and milky without being sickly , just the job to warm us up on a... More

We stopped here for lunch while walking the Berwickshire coastal path. The service is friendly and efficient, and there is an upstairs seating area in addition to outside tables. We tried the tray bakes, fresh crab baguettes, homemade soup and scones, and it was all very tasty. Coffee was good too. It doesn't look much from the outside, but there... More

Friendly reception and very reasonably priced. Just had coffee and shared a homemade scone which was light but had hard, dry fruit in it. Only a small place with one table downstairs and 5 or 6 upstairs.

We stopped off here for a light lunch. Ordered the Cullen Skink for each of us, with tea for two intending to finish off with one of the lovely looking cakes. No way, after a bowl of the delicious soup, with lots of smoked haddock there just wasn't room. We with just have to return at a later date to... More

Set in one of the most beautiful spots imaginable is this lovely cafe. I can't remember being greeted by more friendly staff than here. Great quality food and all freshly prepared. Well worth a visit after soaking up the breath taking scenery of St.Abbs!
