On finishing our walk, we popped in here for a coffee and to warm through. However, the smell of the food was too tempting, we ended up ordering a toasted panini. I chose the beef, soft cheese and onion chutney, my husband the pepperoni one....More

Mugdock has three places to eat and drink... this is by far the best coffee in the park, either sit in or carryout whilst you are walking.

Been a few times and the staff have always been friendly. Quirky bits to sit in make it a bit different. Good coffee and cake.

Nice wee find! Hidden away in the corner but was worth the visit. Coffee was real good and very reasonably priced! And the beef sandwich with pepper Mayo was amazing! Loved the addition of the mini couches for kids!

Thank you for your comments... The kids love the small booth areas... and so do the parents... easier to keep an eye on them while still being able to enjoy your coffee :-) I will pass on your great comments to the team in Milngavie.

Have frequently stopped off here over the last year on our family walks. Good food, good hot drinks, nice loyalty card scheme and brilliant kids caves. We always stop off here before we start our walks.
