Family stop off on the way north. Pleasant cafe, really helpful staff. The lentil soup was soooo good! Just like my mums. Sandwiches and toasties were tasty and good value. Had to sit outside as we had a dog. Worth the detour.

Sandwiches are filled right to the edge of the bread. Staff are very friendly and helpful. They also cater for gluten free visitors. Definitely worth a visit.

Popped in here while working in Musselburgh, it’s fantastic! The sarnies are tasty with loads of filling, great coffee and amazing tray bakes... what’s not to like? The service is top notch as well. Get along and try it!
