Excellent breakfast today in McTaggarts. Delicious food and lovely coffee, plus friendly and speedy service from John and the rest of the team. Well done guys! We just wish us west coasters all lived a bit nearer. Highly recommended.

Visited last night for the Italian night. booked in advance so the table was ready on arrival. I tried the vegetarian options and the food and service were fantastic.

This is the only place for coffee in Aberdour, there are other places in the town but this one is usually open. Besides coffee it also serves tea, bites and cakes. There's free parking nearby in the 'Station' car park just over the road.

Lovely light meals, coffee and cakes. Home made soup and warm scones highly recommended 😀. This is a popular little place which has recently introduced some additional seating to cope with demand. Staff are welcoming and efficient, even when kept very busy.

Hi, Danielle, I suppose the honest answer to that is we're probably not. We don't allow pets in the café. We have too many hot drinks and hot food served at a level dogs could knock over. Just a health and safety decision we... More
