This place does not look like much from the outside, but the food on offer is very good. The menu is basic enough (breakfast and lunch food), but the quality is very good. Had the tuna melt, and I have to say it was one of the tastiest and most well-presented tuna melts I've ever had. The scones were good... More

This is a handy wee spot. The food is tasty and portions are generous. Lovely coffee available. A bit noisy and the interior lacks character (given its name) but spot on for grabbing a quick bite.
