Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Another good lunch in here. They always have good home made soup to choose from and along with a sandwich is very filling and of good quality. On this visit my husband chose the steak and onion sandwich and he said it was delicious.

I visited this place based on reviews on trust pilot. I ordered my food and a beer and thought while I'm waiting I'll make a short visit the mens room. When I went in someone was in the cubicle, ( I'll spare the details) I...had done my thing and as I went to wash my hands the man cam out of the toilet,with his pini on and walked by the sink and straight into the kitchen. I tried calling him back but he didn't hear me.I walked back into the cafe and explained to the girl that I wished to cancel my order and why..Terrible to think that happens in this day and age.More

had coffee and toast this a.m.. All sense of enjoyment soon vanished after i paid our bill. Coffee prces at £3+ seemed a bit more than other placs. The real shock came as i checked our bill! Two slice of very normal bread lightly toasted...with usual pre wrapped portion of butter. FOUR POUNDS and NINTY FIVE pence.A loaf of bread costs approx £1 , other establishments charge around £2for toast. will never enter this greedy cafe again. .More

We ate lunch here recently and the food, service and ambience was very good. It has been refurbished and is much nicer now and more popular.

We've eaten here several times since my last review and they have all been good....both the food and the service. The place has been altered and it's now much warmer and cosier. They do seem to have changed the name to Amorist but Im unable...to locate this here.More

Normally, the food is good in here but on this occasion we were served our hot drinks which we'd requested to be served with the food and then forgotten about. Other people came after us and were being served with their food so we asked...for ours! I had soup which was delicious and a sandwich - the bread on this was dry on the outside suggesting it had been sitting somewhere waiting for my friend's pannini to be made. Disappointed and not offered any replacement or refund! Will think twice about visiting again.More

Popped in for a lunch looking for a vegan meal. They didn't have anything specifically Vegan but we had roasted veg panini and asked no mozzarella but with pickle. Als had some fries. The food was delicious and came with a lovely side salad, we...certainly felt like we were in Turkey! The only negative was that at times the waiting staff may have been a little more chatty but i don't like being negative. Lovely atmosphere as well.More

Sorry Guys but I had to ask 3 times for a bowl of soup to arrive. In the time I sat there a family of 4 who came in approx 15 mins after I came in, ate soup and sandwiches and left and I still...hadn’t received my soup...a bowl of soup for goodness sake!?! When paying the bill there was absolutely no acknowledgement of the 50 minute wait. Really poor service but a pretty decent lentil soup to be fair.More

Stumbled across this during a visit to Dunfermline and wasn't particularly impressed. I found the service to be impersonal and borderline uncomfortable as the staff stood and stared at us for most of our lunch. We had a toastie, soup and sandwich combo and a...panini. There was a severe lack of cheese on the toastie and panini and the lettuce in the side salad was starting to turn brown. No one came to clear our dirty plates or ask if we wanted anything else. Was expensive for what it was. Average but wouldn't return.More

I love the bacon rolls from here but was very disappointed to discover the menu has been altered and bacon rolls are no longer available for lunch but only for breakfast up until 12 noon! I opted for a tuna toastie but wasn't really impressed...with it, to be honest!More

A warm welcome when we came into this Town Centre café. on this damp miserable day it was warm and clean. The service was excellent. We hadn't been in for breakfast for a while and I had forgotten what is was like. The quality of...the ingredients were good you could choose what you wanted on your plate. My wife ordered eggs benedict with smoked bacon. I ordered poached eggs on toast with everything. When they came they looked fantastic there was no taking a picture sorry. Because we were both in about it sharpish. Cooked very well indeed. We were very nicely full at the end. Very nice thank you we will be back.More
