We'd heard good reports of this cafe and thought we'd go along and try it for ourselves. First impressions are positive as the location is very scenic and the interior of the cafe looks spacious. On the negative side, the menu is rather limited and prices are higher than you'd expect for this type of establishment. I was under the... More

Very nice Farm Shop cafe. Nice ambience. Pleasant staff. Good food. Unusual cheeses on sale if you're interested. There was nowhere reasonable at St Monans.

2nd visit this year! Cheese platter is fantastic - you choose any three cheeses from a large menu. Platter has home made oatcakes, fruit and delicious home made chutney Coffee was full of flavour and nice and hot. Great cakes too and friendly service.

The food here is always great but they don't seem to be able to get the service right. The staff are friendly enough but seem to wait a long time before taking your order and have on more than one occasion forgotten to bring an item that had been ordered. One of the reasons I like to return here is... More

5 adults and 2 children arrived for lunch on what felt like the coldest day in February. A warm welcome fantastic service and delicious food for all. Cheese platter especially delish. What could be better.

Really good place for morning or afternoon tea or coffee, and they do light lunches as well. At certain times of day you can watch them make their own cheese. On a back road between pittenweem and anstruther.

Firstly, et me say that we had a really good light lunch comprising of a very tasty omelette and a toast. The service was very friendly and helpful. We followed up with a very nice gluten free 'whole orange' cake and a 'lemon drizzle' (really just lemon) cake - both delicious. The position of the café is great with views... More

We have been to this restaurant many times. Today was no different welcoming and pleasant staff. We asked for a ham and cheese toastie to share, we were delighted to see it arrive on two plates, with side salad and crisps on both plates. It was delicious. Lovely coffee also. We will continue to support this business.
