Had lovely service from a nice foreign waitress. Scones today were a bit crunchy though. Cheese scone was pretty bland & crispy and apple scones were tasty but crispy. Not cheap but lovely location.

Stunning riverfront cafe where you can get some great scottish grib al fresco. Served by lovely staff. Highly recommended. Especially the breakfast! Then wander round the beach or visit the waterfall.

The quality of home baking is exceptional, particularly the cinnamon and raisin scones. Highly recommended and good value for money.

Stumbled upon this cafe whilst walking alongside the river. Lovely little cafe with great views and outdoor seating. The homemade soup was delicious served with either a baguette or freshly baked scone. A little gem which is hidden away.

Three of us enjoyed a hearty breakfast here on Sunday morning. We all tucked into the full breakfast and coffee - it was tasty, generous in size and good value for money. The ladies serving us couldn't have been nicer and welcomed our dog in too which was great! We will definitely be back!

First of all I should start by saying the food that we ordered was excellent, served quickly and the cafe is in a great location. The owner seems lovely and improvised when I needed a nappy change area. A few negatives though - it was our first visit to the cafe. My friend had chosen it and I had not... More

We had a very tasty brunch sitting outside (in Scotland in March) in lovely surroundings. Blossom on the trees and colourful crocuses on the grassy area in front of the sheltered seating made a picturesque venue.The food was great with variations to the menu absolutely no trouble. I thought the busy staff were lovely and attentive and overall we had... More

Out for a walk on a wet and windy day we popped in for a hot drink and ended up with the full breakfast. Quick friendly service, the only disappointment was the sausage it was very strongly flavoured with herbs and seasoning which repeated on us the rest of the day, perhaps a milder breakfast sausage would be good.
