“Nice Little Cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014 via mobile

We just had coffee so cannot comment on food. Perfect for a quick drink, decent atmosphere and comfy seats.

“Very good food and an entertaining place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We visited this coffee house/restaurant whilst passing through KIrkcudbright and were certainly not disappointed. There is an excellent range of food at very reasonable prices. We were pleasantly surprised with the number of vegetarian dishes as well as plenty of other things for meat eaters. We chose a vegetarian biriyani and a mixed bean casserole, both of which were delicious. The place is 'decorated' with a range of very amusing signs. So there is entertainment to read whilst you are waiting for food or visiting the toilets. The place is 'fun' and casual and we would definitely return.

“Super place to eat, loads of character.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

We've visited this place many times over the years and have never been disappointed. It has bags of character, and plenty to keep you amused, have a read of the literature that accompanies the menus and have a giggle! Also, you must visit the (clean) toilets, lots of amusing stuff hanging on the walls.
Our latest visit was a busy Saturday lunchtime, loads of people in the place, and only one man cooking and serving all by himself. I have to say he did a brilliant job.
I had bangers and mash, with onion gravy, lovely, tasty and meaty sausages, perfect mash and loads of gravy, thoroughly enjoyed this on a cold November day!
A few people don't like the casual, quirky nature of Harbour Lights, we love it, and we will be back.

“Busy but nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

It was raining hard when we popped in, so the place was quite busy with other people sheltering from the weather. I felt sorry for the waitress who was run off her feet, but she was very pleasant and especially nice to the children. We had drinks and puddings - all nice and warming. We enjoyed our visit. Thanks.

“Nice tearoom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

We have been here a couple of times. It is a reasonably priced local tearoom (waitress service) in centre of town opposite the main car park. It is not buggy friendly so not many small children come here. A bonus as far as we are concerned as it means we can have tea & cake in peace! Lovely lemon cake.
