The railway viaduct with the old fishing town to your left is a grand approach and then as the road sweeps uphill to the square on the right corner there is a cafe. No doubt in the short season the cafe is busy but it really is larger inside than you expect and that even accommodates a fine display of... More

Had an amazing breakfast here - Scottish breakfasts for my wife and I, and the pancakes and bacon for our 8 year old. Food was great and the service excellent.

Fantastic place for lovely meal, great setting. Soup was pretty tasty and their famous "Rockpool Burger" was worth the drive.
