Great Cafe, offering comfortable seating, friendly young staff, and good wholesome home cooked Scottish fare. Simple but very charming. The selection of cakes, and other sweet treats, is quite impressive. Reasonable prices for tasty, freshly prepared food. Highly recommended! SERVICE: 4 Stars. FOOD: 4 Stars, VALUE: 4 Stars

Wowee. We love this cafe. We make a point of stopping in whenever we are in Culross and are never disappointed. Everything is very obviously home made and it must take a real effort to source such top class ingredients that you can actually taste. And the cakes! Oh lordy. Even as a died in the wool meat eater, I love the veggie options. The coffee is amazing too. It's a warm and friendly atmosphere and really good service. Go check it out.

Good service. Serving staff friendly. Spotlessly clean, bright sitting and warm area.
Very good coffee but only had full cream milk! But then I won’t die from it although it would be nice not to have full cream milk. Then £4.00 for an Almond Croissant! The pastry had more than the usual sugar thus it tasted as if it was burnt. Sorry for the moans but this won’t do.

Nice little place with a good coffee and pastries to enjoy. The staff was very friendly and prices were moderate.

Expensive soup at over £6. Suspect cashing in on the Outlander generated tourist trade. Even in a five star hotel I have struggled to part with that for a bowl of soup, most charge around at top end £4.50
