“Consistently excellent at breakfast, lunch and earlybird dinner”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

Have had several breakfasts, lunches and early bird dinners at the Cafe over the past 3 months and all have been excellent. Nice place to go midweek and at the weekends, staff are good and friendly, price of food and coffees very reasonable. Haven't had an evening meal there so can't comment on that. Definitely one of my favourite places in Kirkcaldy for food.

“Overpriced and pretentious”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

I've had an evening meal and a couple of lunches at the cafe now, and although it is a lovely looking, fresh and modern place, which offers a chilled out and somewhat sophisticated atmosphere, the food in itself is not 100%, a bit pretentious, small portions and overpriced as such. I found the service on all occasions was slower that I would have liked, although the staff are friendly (sometimes close to the line of being overfriendly). It feels like cafe continental are trying to offer a menu at prices competative with those in Edinburgh, but the quality and service are not to the same standard. It is a nice atmosphere for a night out and a few cocktails though, they just need to either bring the cost down, or the qaullity and qauntity up.

“A decent lunch”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

Had lunch there on a wednesday in July.

Service was okay, interior a bit overdone, the chairs especially, were extremely squeaky.
It was quite empty, so the place would probably have looked nicer with a lot of people in.

We had the Sesame Beef Salad and Prawn and Salmon Pasta Salad. Both were very good, however the helpings on the beef salad were quite small.

It was really affordable though, with prices of £10 for two lunches.

Would like to try it again in busy hours, with a full meal.

“Excellent overall, will be back!”
Reviewed July 17, 2011

First time I have tried cafe continental and it certainly won't be the last. Delicious food, amazing cocktails and service second to none. All for a reasonable price. Will definitely be coming back again to try other food on the menu & will recommend to friends :)
