Passing through Stonehaven and feeling a bit peckish, I stopped here for a quick bite. Bacon&egg roll and tea. Cosy wee place with what should have been excellent sea views (poor weather spoiled that but an outdoors area would be lovely in good weather). Quality...More

Ok surroundings, and friendly staff. Toilets very clean. Coffees were excellent, although not the hottest. Double egg roll was good, and bacon and egg roll with two rashes in the bun. Decided to have a scone, which was fresh and huge. We got the feeling...More
