We ducked into here to get out of the rain and grab a late lunch. What a pleasant surprise. The place was almost empty so we loitered awhile, chatting to the people watching the seals and our waitress Moira. It was such a lovely relaxing...More

Amazing lentil soup and mars bar cake. And an extra thanks to Moira for looking after my mum and dad these last few months. Your friendly welcome, healing food and hospitality is more of a tonic than you’ll ever know.

Lovely food, lovely people and great setting overlooking the beach. Even a hot chocolate and an empire biscuit on a wet windy day makes you smile.

The dancing midge cafe is a small, welcoming cafe with great food. The proprietor was lovely with my grand daughter, making us all feel welcome. The menu is varied and all homemade. Don't be put off by the name!

The home made scones with clotted cream and jam are highly recommended, probably one the best I have tried, it is actually much softer and creamier than the scones in The Willow Tea Room in Glasgow. The lady was lovely and very friendly.

Sorry didn't see your posting as I was away on holiday. Not sure if they do vegan but just ask as all their food is freshly made in house, including the bread so they should be able to tell you.
