Went there with wife, sister and (female) cousin for afternoon tea. We had a great afternoon out - and everything passed the scrutiny of my three guests - with flying colours.

This is a little gem near the bridge in Ayr - so not i the centre but worth a visit. Toasties are excellent and the staff are great. It's a regular of mine now and great to go with your kids.

Visited the Sugar Cube for the first time and was thoroughly impressed. Our lunches were delicious - well presented and plenty on the plate with such reasonable prices. Coffee was very good and the selection of cakes and scones on display looked very tasty indeed....More
