Been here for the first time and I love it. Cheap breakfast, totally delicious (£5 for pancakes and bacon). Staff are all friendly. Environements lovely and comfortable. Only criticism is that it gets a little busy (to be expected) and they don't take dogs.

I love the Haven Cafe. You always get a warm reception from the friendly staff. The choice of food is great for a wee cafe and it is a very comfortable place to eat. From bacon rolls to beautifully baked cakes. Decent latte to suki loose leaf tea. It's well worth a visit

This was our first visit to The Haven, and we were not disappointed in anyway. Lovely coffee followed by filled breakfast rolls, which were really tasty, then we noticed the great looking Raspberry scones, and we decided to share one, [as we really did need, but they looked so good, we got greedy] oh! it was lovely, so glad we...

We were recommended to try this place and as we had to check out by 10.30 it made sense to have our final breakfast here, Plenty of choice but the full breakfast is what it's all about washed down with a great tasting coffee. Brill grill.

Slightly out of the way but worth the effort. Great breakfasts, excellent coffee, fantastic home made cakes (try the fresh peach Victoria sponge). Wonderful friendly staff.

Just a good breakfast. Nailed it! So greasy, so good, so satisfying. Cheap too. £7.45 gets you a cracking cooked full breakfast with tea or coffee. If that doesn't take your fancy ( but why wouldn't it?!)there's other things like pancakes, porridge, sandwiches and soups. Oh cakes look amazing. But I never have space for one after smashing a massive... More

First visit to The Haven which was recommended by a friend who told us this café offered "the best breakfast". She was right! Excellent, prompt, friendly service. Delicious sausages, bacon, haggis, beans, fried egg, potato scones and toast, all freshly made. Neither of us wanted the tomatoes, mushrooms or black pudding so we were asked if we wanted to replace... More

Go here, you will not regret it. A group of six of us headed down for Sunday breakfast and it was amazing. Everything on the plate was cooked perfectly, a full breakfast came with a cup of tea (as it should be) and the sausage, black pudding and haggis were all delicious and great quality. I was particularly impressed that... More
