Having visited the harbour on a stormy day we were in need of a cup of coffee. This was a popular, cosy place to go. Friendly staff - lively atmosphere.

We always visit this restaurant when in Cullen - I recommend making reservations if you go for lunch. We had breakfast on this occasion which was large and very tasty. Staff are very friendly and professional.
