closed for family holiday Sat 28th May - Fri 10th June
We are a small local cafe with a focus on baking, savoury snacks and the best coffee in town! We make everything ourselves on site, as such the menu is fairly small and there may sometimes be less choice later on in the day . You can also pick up those cupboard essentials like local eggs, bread, jam and of course coffee.
We serve speciality coffee sourced from Papercup Coffee Company in Glasgow. These guys have been working with us from the start, and never fail to deliver the goods! Whichever single origin bean is in the hopper, we will have full traceability back to where the coffee was grown and processed, and our baristas are always happy to chat more with you about your brew. We are proud to serve coffee from small independent growers, where a higher percentage of the price of your drink goes to the people who grew the good stuff!
All of our 'to go' packaging is compostable, and if you aren't able to bring a re-useable container we urge you to 'close the loop' by ensuring the packaging makes it to a commercial composting bin.
We are also proud to pay all permanent staff over 18 above the living wage, and to run a fair work place.
Our aim was to create a home from home, a space filled with warmth where the genuine spirit of what we are doing shines through. Set up by two local gals in 2016, we still run a tight ship making sure we are serving up the best.
Everyone is always welcome.
Can I book a table?
We don't take reservations at the cafe, it's just first come first served for seats. Please note that because we make everything ourselves, on busy days there may be less choice in the afternoons.
Are you dog friendly?
Well behaved dogs are most welcome in the cafe, please do be considerate of other customers.
Are you kid friendly?
Of course, lots of our food is suitable for little people too, we have colouring and story books, and make a mean wee hot chocolate.
Is the cafe accessible?
There are no stairs, and all the doorways (including bathroom) can accommodate a standard size wheelchair. There is turning space for a chair within the bathroom, which is also fitted with handrails, though we recognise the bathroom layout may not be suitable for all. There are two blue badge parking spaces directly in front of the cafe. Please do send an email if you have any particular questions and we will do our best to help.
Do you cater for dietary requirements?
We do our best to always have GF, DF, Vegan and nut free options on the menu and for cake. Whilst some things will be fine for those with a gluten intolerance, our small kitchen space means that they may not be ok for those with severe coeliac disease. Please do speak with us about your requirements, and make sure to let us know about allergies when ordering. We do our best to accommodate within our small menu.
Do you have a menu online?
We don't have a menu online, but to give you an idea we serve breakfast until midday (toast, porridge, scrambled eggs), sourdough toasties from midday, and lots of other things like frittata, salad and legendary Wark Farm pies. Scones, cinnamon buns and other treats available all day (or until they are sold out!).
Could you cater for my event?
Regrettably, we aren't able to make whole cakes to order or cater for small events...whilst we would love to cook for your occasions, we just don't have the kitchen space, the storage, or the staffing for this. We are always happy for you to come and buy a selection of cakes and traybakes though for birthdays or treats!
