Was in Lanark at the physio and found this place here on tripadvisor . Excellent cafe type food in a lovely little hideaway just off the main drag . Hardworking people like myself making an honest go of things . Highly recommend .

I went in for morning coffee and was pleasantly surprised by the range of food on offer. The only drawback is the place is on the small side and only has about 6 or 7 tables.
