Nice Toastie

Had their kimchi toastie which was good! They also had oat milk for coffees. A few vegan cake options but not loads. Decor is nice

Pros: Lots of vegan options

Cons: Slightly pricey

Amazing amazing food!

This was a truly incredible lunch experience! We had the kimcheese sourdough toastie, Thai green lentil soup and caramelised onion and cheese toastie! It was dog friendly and a lovely bright atmosphere! Would 5 star if possible!

Pros: Lots of vegan options, Absolutely delicious, Dog friendly

Helps to be a king

Disappointed that having to pay extra for soya or oat milk. 70p per drink! Could buy a litre of the stuff for that. Thought we'd got past additional charges for non dairy..... Not here

Pros: Vegan options, Healthier food than standard cafes

Cons: Additional charges to be vegan, Charged extra for soya or oat milk, 9.40 for 2 coffees and meant to be large but not

beans on toast.

Don't knock it! Dropped in and the one option they had was the above. However it was homemade, big beans, tomato, spinach and coriander on toasted sourdough. An absolute bargain at £4.20.
For the food and service I would have given 4 star, but the limited option only allows 3.
Stopped for lunch and I had the falafel smash sandwich which was roasted and came with leaf and chilli jam. My other half had the build you own salad option which she enjoyed very much.
It’s limited but what they have is very good.

Best coffee and vegan options in Dumfries

Great place, lovely outdoor seating, incredible food. Had a more limited vegan menu in the last but now lots of vegan options available, vegan cheeses and meat alternatives. Had a really good mixed salad with vegan bacon and ready cold brew on a sunny summer day

Food was good... but

I loved my lunch here. It was delicious. However I had to leave because the smell of bacon overpowered everything when some people ordered it. Staff were lovely.

Pros: Avocado on toast, Soup, Facon

Cons: Smell of bacon

Our favourite place

This is a very relaxed, charming café with young staff and plenty of seating. The best thing is the small but super-tasty menu including smashed avocado on sourdough toast with chilli flakes, mixed seeds and cherry tomatoes at a reasonable price.... or you could just have toast if you're skint! It's a shame that fresh vegan cakes are a rarity here.

Oat milk always available and the coffeee is SO good that I never need any added sugar...

Pros: Good range of tasty vegan options, Relaxed atmosphere , Great coffee and milks

Cons: The chairs are very uncomfortable!, Don't often have vegan cakes available

Great coffee shop in the centre of town

Oat and soya milks available and by far the best coffee in Dumfries (coffee is from Has Bean roasters). Always at least a couple of vegan options on offer, changing every month or so and all hand made by the cafe and in the past staff have offered to swap veggie ingredients for vegan ones.

Pros: great atmosphere, nice staff, good coffee and food
