I really enjoyed my visit to Kings. The atmosphere was friendly and relaxed, and I wish it was closer to home and I could go more often. Try the scones - I had apple and cinnamon and it was absolutely gorgeous. Nice surroundings too, with books to buy and great wall displays. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm in Dumfries.

Really good coffee, atmosphere very peaceful, friendly place. Baked goods especially the scones need to be fresh, if they get that right, it would be a great place.

For really excellent coffee, a selection of leaf teas, or a hot soup for lunch this is the place to go. What other coffee shop offers free drinking water that you can help yourself? And there is more: it has free wi-fi, and a selection of books. What about art - there are often exhibitions of paintings or quilts etc. It is so friendly, you are likely to strike up conversation with other customers or the staff - who are always willing to help.

We were visting recently and the staff were most accommodating allowing us not only access to the free WiFi but also power to charge my laptop and a warm welcome and friendly smile. See you next month when we will again be visiting Dumfries.

Lovely little cafe.
Always warm and welcoming.
Soup and a sandwich excellent value. The chipotle soup is a favourite.
If I only had one criticism it would be they are a wee but heavy on the mayo in some sandwiches so beware if you watch what you eatalso do a great cup of cappuccino.
