Review of Swallow Cafe

Swallow Cafe
Ranked #11 of 61 Restaurants in Dunoon
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Cafe
Description: A traditional cafe in the centre of Dunoon. We are well known for being the only cafe in the area making our own delicious Italian ice-cream on the premises. We also offer home baking (try our Key Lime Pie!) And home made soups - fresh every day. Lots of our savoury dishes are home made and we have been told that our macaroni cheese, cottage pie and fish pie are probably the best around. We have our own brand of coffee - freshly ground, and a range of herbal and fruit teas. We also serve fresh fruit smoothies and milkshakes. We are open 7 days a week and look forward to seeing you!

Went to Dunoon for a little day trip and maybe It's not a terribly exciting place and we were trying to find somewhere to have lunch. A few places were shut...it was Monday...but the Swallow Cafe was open and it looked very ordinary. However we had a really nice lunch there and the staff were ever so friendly and nice. I had fish cakes which were lovely and would have loved an ice cream but was too full! The place was quite busy with all sorts of people from elderly to young couples with babies. It's not stylish or posh or "haute cuisine" but it fitted the bill for us.

Before a recent day-trip to Dunoon, I found this cafe on TripAdvisor and ate both breakfast and lunch there. They have an amazing range of meals (breakfasts served all-day) plus veggie and meat specials; and too many desserts to list.

I can't fault the service, the friendliness of the staff, nor the deliciousness of the food. Burgers come in 100% beef or venison, or, wild boar & chorizo. The side salad at £2 is beautifully presented with carved tomato and cucumber, plus greens and cole slaw. There appear to be a few 'regulars' in dogs who were greeted as well my own with joy.
