“We had breakfast. Not bad, coffee disappointing though...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

This is the only place we could find in Carnoustie to contemplate breakfast in, the rest of the place is a great disappointment. No wonder Donald Trump thinks he can do better....

The breakfast fare was solidly good, but let down by the coffee which was certainly not up to Italian standards. Hence the overall rating of average rather than very good.

“Glorious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

The best cafe/ bistro on Angus . The food is amazing everyone should try the lasagna it is out of this world ( wish I knew the recipe ) . The scrummy soups are delish and the salad dressing is to die for so do yourself a favour and try it you won't be dissapointed

Delicious food, fab coffee and excellent staff. Have been regularly since it opened and my wife a lot more than me. Certainly the best coffee shop in Carnoustie. N + H

“Excellent local cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2011

On a recent trip to Carnoustie a friend and I had some time to kill on a bleak, grey day after we had walked the beach!....We had a lovely lunch and several excellent coffees at this family owned cafe...Excellent value and friendly staff.
