First time in this small cafe. Excellent food, good service and great value. There was a good view of ships sailing up the Clyde as well.

One of our favourite places to go for breakfast, lunch or just a cake and coffee! There are plenty of gluten free/dairy free options and the view alone makes it worth a trip! One Cove Road is always a welcoming place to come!
