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.

Cullen skink and a warm buttered roll. At that moment, nothing could have been better suited than this creamy smoked fish bowl of velvety scrumptiousness.

I hadn't been to this café for a long time and had arranged to meet a friend there for afternoon tea. The furnishings are looking shabby and not especially clean. The young man serving was very off-hand. We ordered 2 teas and 2 carrot cakes. The tiny squares of carrot cake arrived, about 6x6x2 cm - tasteless sponge and a... More

All topped off with a cup... More
