“Great place to have a super coffee and cake”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Just popped in for a quick coffee and cake on route. Was very surprised at the quality of the food, beverages and service. The staff are very friendly and the service is very quick. My wife and I were made to feel very welcome, the restaurant is very well keeps and the staff look very smart in their black uniforms. Can't recommend it highly enough, would be tough to beat on the Castle Douglas main drag!

“Always a treat!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We always pop in when we are passing and now wouldn't go anywhere else in the town as the service is second to none. The girls always have a smile on their faces which makes a big difference these days, and they are always so friendly. Even if there are no tables due to it's popularity the staff don't ignore you and it's not usually too long before one becomes free. As well as the fresh home made lunches, there are so many delicious cakes to choose from I often find myself buying an extra slice to take home for later! Overall it is just a lovely little distraction where you can forget about the outside world!

“Best Cafe In Town For Lunch Or A Coffee Break”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

As always, it's a delight to visit Streetlights for a tea break on a busy day in town. A friendly welcome and a wonderful choice of cakes to go with tea ! All of the food is really good, portions are very generous and excellent value.The staff are always attentive, great atmosphere and I always enjoy my visits. If going to Castle Douglas and you need a pick me up then Streetlights is a must.

“Great Place!”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

When we arrived for lunch, it was very busy. Despite this, we were made to feel welcome and were seated by the attentive young staff.
The food was very tasty and not too expensive for a light lunch.
Will come back.

“Never Disappointed”
Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

I don't know who the blonde girl is who works in Streetlights but she's always excellent: she says hello and goodbye to every customer, is so obliging, gives good cake advice and is just generally lovely. If I owned that business, I'd know it was in very safe hands if I wasn't around.
The food is also amazing here, fresh, tasty and with a great range of soups on~ there's usually 3 to choose from. Try the fish cakes , heaven! If you have a sweet tooth, the cakes are mega and the scones huge!
Great cafe, I just wish I could go more often . Great service goes such a long way.
