Popped in for a quick snack on a beautiful sunny day and sat outside. Both inside and out were very busy. My husband had a selection of seafood which he really enjoyed and I made a chip butty ;). We both drank tea. It's a nice enough place and all the food looked good, they could make the outside area... More

I used to work for the latimers family for many years and have eaten at this cafe many times with a fantastic experience on every occasion. Latimers have done seafood for many years and have mastered it. There is a few reviews on here stating that latimers is over priced but if you look at the quality of their fish... More

Great to see that Latimers now has a liquor licence and the food is as good as ever. Only quibble on our sharing seafood plate was that the crab was not as good as it should be i.e. sparse white meat and sloppy brown as if it was mixed with something, didnt spoil our enjoyment. Charged £7 corkage but wellworth... More

Popped in just after New Year after a walk along the beach for a cuppa. Decided to sit and we both got the Cullen skink and it was great with brown bread and a cup of tea. Highly recommended.

We call here from time to time, mainly to buy fish, but this time thought we would have some lunch. Both the shop and the cafe were quiet, the fish from the shop we have always found to be very good, not sure if the shop and cafe are run by the same people, cafe not so good. A small... More

My wife and I were out for a walk with the dog and called on for a coffee and scones. Great location. Scone was rejected as it was stale and the counter staff agreed and replaced with fresh scone. Coffee OK but nothing special.
