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.

Delicious soup and amazing toasties - great ingredients and lovely service. They said the bread was homemade and you could tell.

Stumbled upon this lovely place on a cold and rainy afternoon in Kirkcaldy. We had our dog with us and we were all welcomed by friendly staff and sat down to have some lovely food and delicious coffee. I chose the Cullen Skink which was...freshly cooked and utter perfection. Our dog was given a bowl of chopped sausages. We bought two pastel de natas to take away and eat later, they were scrumptious. We will definitely all return when we are next in the area.More

We were walking the Fife Coastal trail with our pooch. Kirkcaldy was an obvious stop for lunch, so we looked up dog friendly cafes/restaurants in town. This place caught my eye on google/TripAdvisor as we approached town. What a find!! Dog friendly, warm welcome, cosy...and bustling. All good signs. The soup and a sandwich was just the job on the menu, although, having seen the dirty fries now I live with yearning! The soup was celeriac and apple, now, on first thought, that didn't seem to appealing. My want for soup overruled my head however. Boy was I glad it did!! The goats cheese toasted sandwich and the soup were well presented and to die for. Top marks. It's rare a bowl of soup comes out piping hot and it certainly was. Just the job after a damp hike on the trail. We grabbed some of their apparently infamous Portuguese Custard Tartlets to go for later in the day for good measure! We devoured those on the bus back to our digs at the end of the day and did they bring a smile to our faces!! Well done, fantastic establishment,wonderful food, great service. 10/10. 🥇 I'll be back for the loaded fries!! (Nachos I bet are brilliant too!)More

I love this place. I am gluten and dairy intolerant and this place serves up simply the best oat milk latte and gluten free breakfast options and delivers every time. Hooked and keep going back again and again.

Amazing find in Kirkcaldy. Warm welcome even with our 2 large labradors that spread themselves out on the floor. They were catered for immediately with water and a bowl of sausage each. Food perfect, hot and fresh. Staff friendly throughout.
