We were looking for 'The Pizzeria' so nearly walked right passed. Glad we didn't though! Staff were lovely and the pizzas were great. They were happy to make the toppings we asked for as none of us wanted the ones available from the menu. They even boxed up what we couldn't manage... our eyes were bigger than our belly. The...

Had lunch and afternoon tea in Pizzeria and found it excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and the cream meringues are best I have tested for many years.

During a brief visit to Stranraer we wanted a coffee and a cake. The Pizzeria was busy when we arrived and there was a very good atmosphere in the place. The coffee and cakes were very acceptable and the staff were very friendly and attentive. Good, honest food and drink at very reasonable prices.

Seemed like a nice place to organise a wee breakfast gathering. As a non coffee/tea drinker I asked if it was possible to get an OJ in its place. "No problem" I was told - although I was charged separately for it! If I had been told I would have taken the accompanying coffee for my partner. I did mention... More

We were staying in Portpatrick this summer and wanted a quick and easy lunch after doing a bit of shopping in Stranraer. I wasn't expecting much from a cafe in the Main Street but the staff were incredibly friendly and the food was great. Our pizzas were really well made with loads of topping and the kids were delighted. My... More

Visited this coffee shop for lunch yesterday and won't be back. I visit Stranraer regularly with the kids for family reasons and this was our safe place to go. Unfortunately the waitress was extremely stressed and not exactly happy to see our small party arrive. She made it very clear we were not her preferred customers.... Every question asked was...

Had breakfast here on the morning before catching a ferry having not been able to take breakfast at our lodgings. A good selection of continental and cooked breakfast available prepared exactly as you want it. Good value, very friendly staff and well looked after.
