Had a lovely meal there today with my wife. Ordered the big breakfast and didn't like some of the items (I'm quite fussy) but the staff were more than happy to swap for similar alternatives. Very filling and very tasty. Great service and following current...covid guidelines appropriately. Would definitely come back!More

The cafes located quite centrally in Arbroath and they have really well adjusted to the pandemic. There is seating outside as well as socially distant seating inside. The apple pie was very good and there was plenty on offer on the menu.

I was not at all happy with the cost of my lunch , I had 2 sausages and chips with a bottle of flavoured water price £6.45 , my friend had 3 sausages chips and beans with a mug of tea price £5. 45 ....How is that right I would really like to know why I was £1 more for my lesser meal !!!! I should have queried it at the time but didn’t want to make a fuss !More

Came across this by chance as I was looking for lunch for myself ( and umpteen bags) . Outside looks nothing remarkable but actually it was very good. Just what I required. Lovely breaded local haddock, chips and salad. Accompanied by brown bread and tea....Presented nicely by pleasant staff . What more could you want?More

Visited here for lunch. Fantastic menu choice very reasonable. Homemade and excellent priced. Lovely coffee and cakes available. Pende burger is wonderful, the onion rings were a meal in themselves.

Have started to take my elderly mum and dad here for Saturday lunch. They used to visit when they were more mobile in their younger days! Lovely staff and very friendly. Food is all home made, piping hot and generous portions. Place is always busy...and its easy to see why. Highly recommended.More
