Pancakes to die for. Really work hard to please their customers. This is a place to have a quick lunch break, coffee break and meet friends for a blether.

Cosy atmosphere, personal service, friendly welcome - MacGillivray's offers a wide range of gifts (and some really stunning jewellery!) that set it apart from other stores. Home-made soup and home-baking are second to none.

The café in the back of this stop is a hidden gem. Drop in and enjoy the delights of the freshly made soup (changes on daily basis) and variety of pancakes, scones, lemon melts, cakes, fruit slices etc.

This is a lovely little coffee shop with excellent food - delicious soups and well-filled rolls, scrumptious home baking and friendly service. All this at the rear of a gift shop well-stocked with reasonably priced and tasteful gifts. We'll be back!
