When in Irvine this little tearoom down by the harbour is our favourite spot for a tasty lunch. There is a wide choice of meals and snacks on the menu, all at very reasonable prices. As well as the usual kinds of soup and fillings for sandwiches/baguettes there are usually some more exotic choices. Helpings are a good size. The home baking is delicious. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the service is quick. I don't know how they manage it as at lunchtimes the place is very busy.

I saw online that Small Talk catered for gluten free diets so wanted to give it a try when on a weekend break to nearby Troon. I wasn't disappointed. Gluten free bread available and the range of home made gluten free baking is unbelievable. I asked for a scone and was surprised to be offered either fruit or plain - it was delicious. It was so good we returned on the Monday before going home to stock up on GF pancakes, scones and cakes which are available to take away. Would go back every weekend if I could!
