Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We read about this cafe online and it really does deserve 5 stars! One member of our party was vegan and the owner offered all sorts of options and ways he could alter the other dishes to make them vegan if they weren't already! He...was just the nicest most accommodating guy, from getting our group a good seat to recommendations for good places to go back in Largs. The scones were so good 10/10 and yeah just a lovely wee cafe with nice things to eat and a super friendly staff!More

A quick pop in this morning for a breakfast, fast and friendly service. Full Scottish breakfast was amazing, the haggis is the best I've had and everything else was really very tasty. My wife had the French toast and crispy bacon and we shared a...pot of tea. Sorry, I only have the one photo, I was too busy tucking into mine 😁More

Great spot for a cuppa and light lunch. We popped in on Sunday and watched the weather change about four times, outside. Such is the weather in Scotland! I liked the white decor. Lovely staff and owner. They were quick and genuine and answered all...our guests questions. Great chat; great fun. Nice selection of things to eat. Not expensive. We'll be back, very soon.More

Aday on Millport island is relaxing to say the least.From the moment we walked off the ferry and on to the coach,we were aware of the leisurely atmosphere.We left the bus in Millport outside the Pier Hotel and walked the two mile promenade eventually stopping...at the above cafe for a drink.We sat outside and waited for our drinks.Out came the owner with not only the drinks,but a general description of the history and the attractions on the island.The drinks were well priced,and well presented.More

Came for lunch with my family and friend and have to say it was lovely. Nice and clean with lots to choose from - toasties, soup, french toast, breakfasts, pancakes. MASSIVE scones too but didn't have the room to try them, maybe next time!

We arrived at the cafe with two very hungry boys who had just done the longest cycle of their life! The staff couldn’t have been more accommodating and the food was absolutely delicious. My 8 year old said it was the best lunch he’d ever...had! The toasties were yummy and we really appreciated the homemade coleslaw and potato salad. Will definitely be back.More

Great lunch today. Toasties with fantastic bread and great value. Well worth walking a few hundred extra yards towards Kames Bay for quality grub! Will be back.

Popped in for a coffee and a scone. Despite being busy we were made to feel very welcome by the staff(owner?). Great coffee, fab scone and value for money. We’ll be back. Highly recommended if you are visiting Millport.

Sorry didn't see your posting as I was away on holiday. Not sure if they do vegan but just ask as all their food is freshly made in house, including the bread so they should be able to tell you.
