Breakfast was wow. Top quality locally sourced ingredients. We were greeted by a server who didn't seem to want to take his coat off which was weird.

Excellent customer service in this cafe - friendly and attentive staff. Was dissapointed with beef curry- very chewy meat. Tomato and Basil not the greatest tasted like tinned tomatoes had been used. Home baking very good.

Nice little licensed cafe, freshly cooked food and a good choice available for all tastes. Quite busy with people calling for a bite to eat. It is located on the border of England and Scotland, approx four miles from Gretna.
