We stopped here for lunch with friends and were pleasantly surprised. Lovely staff, and a good selection of food and lunch provisions. All made on site, and all tasty.

I had a cullen skink for lunch and it tasted really nice. The bread was fresh too so I would definitely recommend this place. The staff is very helpful.

Always looking for a new venue for morning coffee and a chat, my friend and I decided to drive to Stonehaven to see what was on offer. Maggie May's is a cosy eaterie, with friendly staff and 'home bakes'. We had the choice of breakfast, and / or scones with butter and jam, a variety of sponge cakes and an... More

Passing through Stonehaven yesterday we were flagging and stopped for a coffee. Maggie May's is just off the main Market Square parking lot (first 30 mins are free) and so easily accessed. The young staff were very helpful getting high chairs etc and very polite and friendly. We had coffee and shared a Victoria Sponge. Now I'm normally not impressed... More

The smell of newly baked scones gripped your heart as we entered. Excellent coffee, my friend assured me the scones were to die for (I am on a diet). Well worth taking some time... More

Took my parents on a day out to Dunnator Castle and we stopped for lunch in Stonehaven. All day breakfast to die for. The soup of the day (Carrot when I went) very good quality too. Slightly quaint decoration and service was a bit slow, but no biggie and thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Thank hassooni
