The Grangecon is always a treat and is fantastic for breakfast, lunch or a snack.
They specialise in healthy home made food and all baking is done onsite. Their yests bread and other bakery items can by purchased to bring home and the bread toasted is particularly divine.
Their mayonnaise is freshly made and it makes the difference to a sandwich or salad.
Come here hungry as the portions are very substantial and you will want to leave room for the Pavlova with fresh cream.. yummmm

Called in to this lovely cafe this morning. A little gem. We had coffee (only complaint small cup) a scone with cream and I ate a brownie heated with cream, devine. Would definately go back if in the area. All other food looked great.

We've been going to the Grangecon Café regularly since its early days when it was still located in Grangecon. In all that time we've never had a bad meal; each visit has been a pleasure.

The café is situated in an old school building. Its high ceiling, muted grey/blue tones and artwork on the walls create a sense of calm. The staff are always friendly and enthusiastic.

What makes it so special is the great quality of the food. Nothing cheffy, simply wholesome food prepared with well-sourced ingredients (in many cases organic). While it may be more expensive than other establishments, it quite simply surpasses them. Freshly baked foccacia and Gubbeen cheese served with homemade chilli jam and salad leaves, baked St. Tola goat's cheese with toasted hazelnuts and roast peppers, sausage rolls, spinach and feta pie, lemon tart, chocolate cake, scones...

The Grangecon Café is run by people who clearly care about providing great food consistently. Do visit - you won't be disappointed!

Homemade lemonade to get the taste buds going. Spinach and feta pie with rhubarb relish, unusual but perfect marriage followed by tart but also sweet lemon pie. Will go back, just in the hope that the spinach pie will be on the menu again. Can't wait to go back. Outstanding.

The Restruant itself is fairly rustic. A busy little spot. The menu consisted of no nonsense wholesome, healthy food. My wife and myself had lunch there and had a sandwich each. The reason being the salads and other main courses were just too expensive. The sandwiches were very tasty with fresh produce on home made bread. There was a steady trade on the takeaway counter selling the aforementioned bread. The staff were very friendly and service was spot on. I would go again as long as someone else was paying !
