“Yum Yum even if it was a scone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

I managed to get out of the rain and wind and into this little cave of a coffee shop. The owner is a refugee from Middlesbrough who is full of fun and laughter, and who , more importantly, produces excellent food and drinks at a reasonable price.

i had a fruit scone and jam with a pot of tea. My companion enjoyed a fruit scone and jam with coffee. Great value at a fiver in total.

The cafe is clean, comfortable and warm. There is no rush, and the customer service is offered with a genuine smile. Returning customers are given a warm welcome. Breakfasts, lunches, snacks, afternoon teas....and fantastic coffee. What more could anyone want?

I strongly recommend a trip to this establishment in Troon.

“Wee gem near the seaside”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2013

We discovered this gem of a place a few months ago while killing time in Troon, since then we've recommended it to friends and strangers alike.
A recent visit for afternoon tea was a great success and today's visit for morning coffee wasthe same.
David, the owner always has a friendly smile for his customers and prices are reasonable.
We would recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick bite or a leisurely lunch in Troon.
We'll be back soon

“a wee smasher of a place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

This must be our 20 plus visit to Troon this year, and we always go to Chit Chat before or long walk or after depending how hungry we are. David the owner always has a lovely smile and makes you very welcome. His homemade stovies, soups, cakes, dumpling and scones are to die for. He also has a lovely list of teas, coffees and hot chocolate. Nothing is too much trouble, everything is fresh and prepared when you order, not made in advance and reheated when you order.A really wee gem of a place. Give it try you'll not be disappointed.

“Lovely wee cafe.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2013

Popped in here by chance for a bite of lunch, and really pleased that we did. The cafe is lovely and bright, and nicely decorated. We both had toasties, and they were very tasty, and came with a fresh salad and crisps. The service was very quick, and nice and friendly. Will definately come back here if we are ever in Troon again.

“Not open during opening hours”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

Just walked to this cafe today (Saturday afternoon) just to find it's closed. Got there 4.15pm and despite opening hours stating open till 5 pm it was closed. No notice on door, no explanation nothing! What business can afford to close 45 min.early in these tough economic times? This is the way to loose customers!
