“Homely, inviting and kids eat free through the week!”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

This is my local... We come here for coffees and a great kids hot chocolate (with sparkly sprinkles on occasion!). We've had breakfasts, lunches and dinners here and it's well priced. It's licenced but we've never had a drink so can't comment. The food is great, especially the soups, and the soup/sandwich combo is a good deal. Better still, recently they've added a deal where kids eat from the kids menu free with every adult eating. That includes adults eating from the lunch menu, which is a great deal. The kids menu has a good range and healthy choices. They occasionally have themed nights and music but with a four year old, when we've a babysitter we usually like to treat ourselves! It's across the road from The Treehouse which is also great (I think I've reviewed that too) but if one or other is busy or you fancy a change either of these would be a good choice for good coffee, great service, nice surroundings and good food with healthy kids choices. Savoy wins out with the kids eat free deal though.

“Pizza Perfection”
Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

If you like your pizza thick, soggy and disappointing, go elsewhere. The Savoy Cafe will only serve the thinnest, crispest and most appetising pizza you can imagine. We sat in the quirky chairs, admiring the proprietor's eclectic collection of cruet and watched the summer tourists go by. A frosty glass of Pieroni for him and a cool Sauvignon Blanc for me, followed by sinful strawberry cheese cake and great coffee made our long, lazy lunch an enjoyable experience. Great value, too.

“Well recomended”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I visited during a short break to Ayr, we were looking for somewhere to eat and were recommended The Savoy by Tourist Information. We were not disappointed, we were made very welcome on arrival, were served promptly and enjoyed our meal. The venue was very clean, with clean toilets and helpful and friendly staff.

“terrible”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

We were getting food to take away and the staff were extremely rude, we were kept waiting for nearly half an hour and were then over charged. The food was fine but the staff gave this cafe a bad atmosphere and I will definitely never be back.

Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Mostly go here for breakfast but have had a few of the main meals as well. The food severed in here is really good quality as well as being reasonably priced for the amount you get this cafe also has a really good atmosphere and nice staff.
