We'd cycled down to Ayr from Troon using the excellent cycle-path network. We drew a blank on Ayr promenade and headed back to the harbour. Looking across the water, we saw a pub and what looked like a couple of eateries near a small marina.
Over the road we cycled round a big truck and, pulling up by the pavement, encountered two women dressed in black uniforms outside at one of two small tables. Banter ensued and it became clear they were still open for business around 2:30 pm that afternoon.
The inside of the cafe/restaurant is bright, clean and wholesome. The menu was varied if not loaded with hundreds of options. The normal hot Scottish filled rolls were available as were the usual staples and some not-so-usual ones as well. Having been cycling for a while I opted for steak pie — and an excellent homemade effort it was. My wife had a panini with mozzarella, sun-dried tomatoes, olives and pesto. She loved it and followed up with a cake and coffee. I finished with a mocha.
The food was good, freshly cooked and piping hot. The coffees were well priced and tasty. The service was excellent, friendly and warm.
I'll go back there. It's a great wee, value-for-money, cafe with a better than average range of food. No alcohol, but convivial folk in somewhat spartan and very clean surroundings. Welcome to Ayr.
Oh, if you arrive on a bicycle you can readily park it right outside… or a car for that matter.
