we always come to this café because of the lovely staff, service and menu, great for some home made soup and a sandwich, the coffee is always excellent and hot. they also have a lovely selection of cakes, down the stairs they have a cracking gift shop, well worth a visit.

Great cafe serving real homemade food and cakes!! And all for a good price. Lovely friendly staff. Only downside is the rather tired looking decor. The table we were at was broken and the chairs were worn.

We were served swiftly and with great cheerfulness. The soup and sandwich deal was fantastic. But the baking including the Victoria Sandwich cake was out of this world.

Had lunch after tasting at Gordon & MacPhail. This was a very modern bistro, upstairs with a light lunch menu and homemade pastries.
