Good coffee and food on a route with not many places to stop. Snacks and light meals are freshly prepared. Service is pleasant and efficient. It's occasionally a bit on the cool side.

great cafe for hand made soups and lunches. ALL home made and very fresh. The local pottery ware is a very good price and well worth a look.

Outstanding full Scottish Breakfast today with great latte. A large pot of tea refilled with hot water what more could one ask for. A variety of all day breakfasts of all types are on offer.
