Lovely wee cafe situated in the Square in Cullen. Best to book a table as really popular. I had the scampi and chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very reasonably priced too.

A very busy cafe. Good range of home-baking - traybakes, loaves and cakes. As it was just after Easter weekend some traybakes were Easter themed. My sister thoroughly enjoyed her chocolate brownie with half an Easter egg in it!
