We visited here in the Easter holidays with our 4 young children, and were all spoilt with delicious home baking, wonderful hot chocolate/marshmallows, and coffee. The savoury muffins were a real treat too! The children were fussed over by the wonderful owners, who couldn't be more welcoming, giving them individually picked animal-themed mugs and matching mats, which the children still talk about! We have been here several times before and will certainly return every time we are in the area. Highly recommended!

What a wonderful find! Yes, it is a small cafe, but this really adds to it's charm. We visited twice during January 2013, whilst on holiday and were made to feel very welcome both times. Lovely warm log burning stove. Fantastic food. The savoury muffins and Lemon Poppy Seed Cake are beyond delicious! Gallery well worth a look - bought 2 super pieces of pottery at a very reasonable price. Definitely worth a visit if yu are in the area.

I have spent new year in this area for the past six years. We stumbled across this on New Year's Day to be greeted with a young piper playing his little heart out outside the cafe. We were fortunate to get a seat with little difficulty and were not disappointed. We have returned there every year since and the standard has not altered in any way. The small gallery upstairs is well worth a visit - costs me a fortune in cards every year but people who receive them are most appreciative. Hopefully see you again in January 2014.

I have distant family connection in the area and get over there as often as I can. An essential element to every visit is this wonderful wee cafe. I was there only on Saturday past (very early January) and there was absolutely nothing to disappoint. The log burner was lit and the tasteful Christmas lighting and decoration added to a wintry ambience. The owners are just so warm, welcoming, gracious and GRATEFUL! I can't begin to understand the earlier post which was most unkind. The coffee and cake (well, my friend had a savoury muffin described as "to die for") was superb and all tastes are catered for with "safe" and adventurous offered. There was a toasted pine-nut cake with geranium and chocolate! I had the lemon poppyseed cake...YUM! Attention to detail in type of milk offered in jugs accordingly (green or blue), cute little individual tea-pots, pastry forks, napkins all adds to a sense of occasion without any pretentiousness. Can't recommend this place highly enough so "Bah! Humbug!" to the moaners.
