We always stop for breakfast at Molly's when we are in the area. They have a good choice of breakfast dishes served by super efficient staff who know how to look after their customers. My only gripe is that I like my coffee a bit stronger. The ocean view is an added bonus.

Came here for lunch with a friend. It was unusually busy for a mid week lunchtime but the staff were friendly and we didn't have to wait too long. Very good fish and chips with an amazing view of the sea. Coffee wasn't so good though.

Heading out of Aberdeen, and having missed breakfast due to morning meetings back to back, a colleague recommended a stop prior to heading back to Middlesbrough here. Slightly off the A90, watch out they have dug the roads up and you may miss it, is the beautiful wee seaside village of Stonehaven. We drove to the seafront and found Mollys,... More

Friendly atmosphere. Very busy and well worth the wait as the food is first rate and very tasty indeed. Reasonable priced. Just what you need after your visit to Dunnottar Castle.
