Passing through monifieth on our bikes and thought we'd stop for a coffee. Unfortunately forgot our chain to chain our bikes up. As the 'cafe' had only one person in it which was inside**, we thought it would be ok for the 10 minutes we would be there to store them up in the outside seating area - out the... More

Followed next day with the fish & Chips again delighted. So today is Sunday and Ive got to return to try out the breakfasts which if the previous visits are anything to... More

We had heard that this small caff was good, near the water in Monifieth, so we tried it yesterday for breakfast. It was excellent: staff were friendly, the full breakfast (an extra sausage was offered in place of the black pudding I didn't want) arrived quite quickly, hot, looking and tasting very good. Coffee was good too, and just the... More

I have often visited the Bay Diner and have got to know the owners, Duncan and Linda very well. I have started to visit regularly with a friend. The food is always excellent, hot and tasty, and we are allowed to chat as long as we like. Great place at the sea front.

I'm fussy about food and always look at standards of cleanliness and quality of service. The fact that I and my family return to this diner time and again says a lot. We have been coming to Linda and Duncan for years (since they were serving out of the side of a burger van in all weather). What they have... More

having read the recent post I wasn't sure what to expect! I went this morning for a Bacon roll and coffee and was served by two friendly smiling young people who engaged in banter and conversation of the dynamics at low tide of the Tay and Tentsmuir. The bacon roll was freshly cooked, coffee was lovely and i went away... More

They say you only get one chance to make a good first impression and unfortunately the staff here didn't take the opportunity. As I was staying in the adjacent caravan site, I decided to pop in for a mid afternoon bacon roll to take away. I walked in and stood at the counter, where a woman with the name tag... More
