All the standard fare (like soup, sandwiches, jacked potatos) but well done. I had the curry chicken with rice - good sized portion and delicious! Only open until 5 pm, on weekends until 8pm.

The wife and I have been to most cafes and restaurants in the Shire, and this place is a good as the best wee have been to.
The boss and his wife, or the boss and her husband, are nice friendly folks, and the place is spotlessly clean.
We had our usual soup, a roll, and a tea and a white coffee.
The home made soup was lovely, the rolls fresh and soft, and the tea and coffee came in pots, neither of which we could finish.
The price was average, and great value.
Only one comment which applies to almost every cafe and restauarant in the Machars, the soup is kept in one of those electric urns, and I had to ask for mine to be zapped in the microwave as I want my soup piping hot. That was done on request.
The owners are appealing to the older generation with HIgh Teas and Afternoon Teas, and they said the younger generation were starting to appreciate the old style teas, and why wouldn't they with home baked cakes and pastries, and freshly made sandwiches.
Lovely wee place all round.
Don't miss it if you are passing through.

Great service and a hearty breakfast too. Lovely to have a big pot of tea & coffee, lots of toast, all included in the breakfast price.
We will definitely return when visiting the area.

We ate here 3 times in a week hilts visiting family. It's a small, quaint, cosy and very friendly little restaurant. Run by husband and wife, the wife is the amazing chef. As soon as you walk in you are met with a cosy warm welcome. The restaurant is very clean, the homemade cakes on display are mouth watering. The menu is surprisingly extensive and unbelievable good value. The portions are on the large side, there is no scrimping here. The chef comes up from the kitchen and helps to serve, she is very talented providing home cooking at its best. It was a nice touch to see the chefs this is very rare. We asked the wife if she knew why our Yorkshire puddings we have been making would not rise. Chef advised that we should be using 2 eggs, not the 1 and she was spot on so grateful to chef for that tip, the proof is in the pudding!! This is a great location next to the river and the bridge with amazing views and walks. I would advise anyone visiting Newtion ?Stewart to give Grannies Kitchen a try, you will enjoy the food and guaranteed to return.
