I always make an effort to have coffee at this marvellous small cafe when I am in Stranraer. It is tastefully decorated and the staff are always extremely friendly. The home made cakes are absolutely delicious!

Warm, genuine friendly greeting on a chilly day. Swift, efficient service, good wholesome food. Spotlessly clean (including the loo's). Good coffee and tea served with a smile. Pity it is not a bigger establishment but the size is part of it's charm!
