“Wee gem. High quality food.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

This little cafe is a wee gem. It opened last year and I've been a regular ever since. They do excellent breakfasts (porridge, roll and sausage), a good range of sandwiches and home made soup, a delicious range of cakes and good coffee. This is not a an ordinary food though. The porridge comes with honey and blueberries, the sausages are pork and herb (and HUGE), the sandwiches are hand-made to order from high quality ingredients, The service is excellent - the staff are have genuine smiles. Its's a good place to sit in with a couple of friends - or by yourself with a coffee and read of their newspapers. Considering the quality of the ingredients, its very good value. The decor is classy too. They are now doing occasional evening openings which would also be worth a visit.

Thank you for the lovely comments, and cheers for taking the time to leave feedback. I have to say that when it comes to the delicious Ramsay's of Carluke bacon and sausages, we are very lucky to have such good produce so locally, we love their products. Thanks again! AB, McCune Smith Cafe

“Everything spot-on at this very smart café”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

I've visited this place four times (twice for breakfast and twice for lunch) and every time I've left very happy. Their extensive choice of sandwiches is different to most cafés I've been to and they're almost always delicious. Great coffee, good cakes, very pleasant service and very smartly decorated. I'd even say it's worth that extra few minutes it takes to get there from the city centre.
