Stopped here for brunch after a long walk from Dunfermline through Charlestown and on into Limekilns. Small cafe with limited tables but great service and food. Lovely location in a narrow lane just behind the promenade. Well worth a visit and offer frequent visitors cards....More

Lovely little cafe. I rowed here with some people and we had tea and scones. Loved the cheese and bacon scones and was a nice touch to be offered them hot or cold. Nice atmosphere and will return when next in the area.

Organised a meeting with a colleague here. Excellent place to chill and have a few coffees. The egg roll was great as were the Portuguese tarts. Quirky environment would highly recommend

Simply awesome! Never realised this place existed. Now I do. Best bacon and sausage roll I've had from a cafe! Will definitely be back. I noticed all those cakes on display, and I mean to sample them all.

Compact, friendly and well maintained cafe slightly off the beaten track. Popped in for a leisurely drink and chat. Nice seating area upstairs, great for some time away from the world. There was a big group in and the volume travels due to the wooden...More

We were here for coffee and scones and end up staying much longer than expected and then going back later in the day. Lovely relaxed place to spend. Scones are excellent which is just as well as my friend and I are 'sconnoisseurs'. I've never...More

Hello. We are, but we don't allow dogs in the cafe I'm afraid. Our kitchen is open. Sorry.
