Taste of Scotland awarded cafe boasting a varied menu of freshly prepared, local produce. Breakfast, lunch, Award winning home baking & Italian coffee. Fantastic Gluten free choices. Situated next to The Scottish Antique Centre and with an alfresco dinning area, it's a great venue rain or shine. Dog friendly too.
