My brother was visiting from the US and so he is used to good breakfasts. However it's hard to find black pudding, haggis, tattie scone, etc. in California so this was ideal for a breakfast pit stop

Not a big cafe but choice of soups, quiches, toasties, breakfasts. etc. all home made and very tasty. You get chips, fresh salad with your meal. Then coffee and home made tray bakes. The service is quick and friendly.
