Reviewed 2 February 2014 via mobile

Lovely little place... nothing there really though, but thats what I liked about it. Lovely walk to the castle ruins, highly recommended in the right company I how ever was with rather a numpty on this walk and couldn't help but think of someone else I would much rather have enjoyed it with. Was a little on the romantic side.

“Great little coffee shop”
Reviewed 24 December 2013

The place is in a fantastic lit the local harbour. It was a good place to meet when I worked in fife. On the local fife coastal path it has plenty of parking and is very scenic. Coffee is good and the staff were always friendly. They sell the usual sweets and cake fare found in most local places. A place I would use again for my visitors from overseas

“A most interesting visit”
Reviewed 14 December 2013

A marvellous reconstruction of a Fife fishing village. The Harbourmaster's house has been converted into a museum and cafe, with modern facilities. The cafe has a picturesque outlook, and good scones! The museum is well worth a visit. We were disappointed to see that John Stuart McDowell's home was closed.

“Not what it used to be”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

We've been visiting the café since it opened and have noticed a change in attitude of the staff. The location is useful and the coffee is good. We noticed that they stop serving hot food quite early now. The couple in front of us wanted soup at 2.15pm on a cold day and were told brusquely that they could have some but they were not supposed to be serving hot food at that time despite being open until 4pm. On recent visits staff seem more concerned with tidying up and clearing away (throwing unused food out) than serving people. We once wanted a toasted teacake 2.30 to 3pm but were told that the toaster had been switched off!
