“Great place but hard to find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013 via mobile

This is a nice place for late breakfast, lunch or a coffee. Food is good and reasonably priced. Some good vegetarian options.
Bands play some nights. But maybe get a sign outside.

“great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2013

Not an easy place to find as trip advisor map shows it on wrong side of the river. But great coffee when we found it would definitely return there and the food looked good.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

I have visited this little gem of a place on several occasions now and every time I am greeted by friendly, chatty staff and even other customers at times! It's just a fantastic little place relax or even get some work done on the laptop. The food is so fresh and their Broccoli and Stilton soup is the best I've ever tasted.

I would recommend this place to any age group and am constantly encouraging friends and family to visit. The owner seems very passionate about giving local musicians opportunity's to play at their gig nights and i am not surprised they have just won best small venue in Scotland by N.M.E and third overall in Britain!

Keep up the good work guys, I hope to see you all again soon!

“Brilliant little place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I love eating in here. We discovered it a couple of months ago and couldn't believe we hadn't found it sooner! Every visit brings giant portions and brilliant food, their green tea is served in a giant pot and their sandwiches are massive with amazing combinations! Thank you for this place!
