Stopped in for a coffee and hot breakfast roll whilst staying in Carnoustie overnight. The food was well cooked, served piping hot and the prices are reasonable. Staff were very friendly. The cafe was very busy with locals,which is always a good sign. Well worth a try.

Franco's has always been a lovely friendly cafe with a relaxed busy atmosphere. Although they don't have actual gluten free options food is made on site and they can adapt dishes. Highlights for me are the free coffee refills and today's fabulous gluten free mint Aero cheesecake
