Despite being a bit late for the brunch cut off last weekend, staff obliged us with the brunch menu, each item 60p, great value, very tasty and gluten free option a welcome bonus. great coffee and friendly staff, will definately return. A cafe with a conscious, an asset to the town.

Food is great, staff are lovely but I don't feel comfortable paying over the odds for a panini when junkies get to come in sit and eat for free! Having to sit and listen to such people talking about drugs and how someone stole this and such and such died with an overdose. Not something you want to sit and... More

Always a nice place to pop in for a drink and snack. Very friendly service and nice atmosphere. And the cakes are very good - unfortunately for my waistline!

Visited Burntisland Island today, 4 adults and a small Cocker Spaniel. Tried to pop into this cafe to be told no dogs allowed. However we were allowed to sit 'outside' in the cold. Took our dog and money to another cafe down the road, who couldn't accommodate us more. Sad as it looked like a nice little place, shame it's... More

Been here before and had no complaints but today it was awful. Arrived 1.45 for a snack lunch. My friend placed order (a panini) immediately after a young couple. We were chatting when I realised 30 mins later still no food. Other couple now eating and when I inquired was told ours was next. However two filled rolls appeared for... More

Calling in for lunch at the halfway stage of our walk from Kinghorn to Aberdour on the Fife Coastal path we escaped the rain and found toilets and a warm environment ! We were immediately made welcome and provided with menus which have a wide range of excellent value meals and drinks. The café is spacious with magazines and newspapers... More

Just popped in for a coffee and a scone and found a busy cafe which has plenty for children to do. The food looked good and our tea/ coffee and scones were delicious. The cafe has facilities for children (and parents!) to paint a selection of pottery and it looked a though there were other arts and crafts activities to... More
