Clean and welcoming cafe. Staff very friendly. Chose soup and a bacon roll. Both very tasty. Took home some cheesecakes for later which great. Great value for money.

Called in to Franco's today for the first time, but, definitely not the last. I ordered a coffee and a freshly baked scone, and no joking it was the best scone I've had in a very long time. Staff very friendly and efficient.

Very busy wee cafe, had to wait for a table on Saturday mid morning. Filter coffee good & free top up is a nice offer. Bacon wasn't crispy despite requesting it. Banoffee pie was lovely. Large selection of home baking too.

I visit Carnoustie regularly and have lunched here in several occasions. The homemade soup is always good and the portions are excellent - great value for money. Staff are very friendly and chatty too - well worth a visit.

Having been treated to a lunch by my wife at this fine establishment, I was left feeling very very impressed. I had the homemade steak pie which was delicious and full of large chunks of steak.
