Went here for lunch today, had the 'soup & sandwich combo', of carrot and pepper soup, and a toastie, followed by a cappuccino. The soup was amazing. Toastie was tasty ! Cappuccino was as good as Starbucks ! Looking forward to coming back in February so I can seat here again !

Have my breakfast most morning in the Bagel, love the full Scottish breakfast. Staff are very friendly and polite. They have a terrace for smokers and free Internet connection, which is great to keep in touch with friends and family. My favourite place for breakfast in largs.
