Concierge.com's insider take:
You wouldn't know it from the unassuming basement entrance, but this cafe and deli serves up an excellent meal—and a reasonably priced one, at that. Fair Trade, locally sourced, and (nearly always) organic ingredients go into the seasonal menu of lighter fare (salads, sandwiches, tapas) and substantial entrées (pan-fried scallops, Stornaway black pudding, Buccleuch beef paprika stew). Original stone walls, a stone-flagged floor, and an old range add some historic character to the otherwise plain, whitewashed space.
Closed Sunday evenings (except during the Festival season).
