This is a good stop over after the Multiverse. The staff were very friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced.

Really enjoyed lunch here with a visitor to the area who was impressed by the selection of gifts on sale too. Will be back for some more soup.

Lovely wee cafe, with lots of gifts in the adjacent shop. Had coffee and a toastie, wee bit slow on the service but can't complain at all.
