My husband and I popped in here this morning for our breakfast. We hadn’t booked but the girls found us a table. My husband had a breakfast and I had a small breakfast. It was very very nice, even the toast & the cup of...tea tasted great. The girl who served us was so nice and friendly. There is a nice relaxed atmosphere in the place. We will definitely go back again & maybe have lunch this time.More

Been here three times in last few weeks. They are doing takeaway only from the door and over phone. You can’t enter the premises and they come to the door to take your order or hand you your phone order. There is a table outside...the doorway keeping everyone at a safe distance and they all wear a mask when taking the order and payment. Payment is card only. It is completely safe and covid compliant with no one coming within 2mtrs of one another. Even people waiting outside stand well away from others. This is why we started going as we knew they were taking the rules seriously but still able to provide a service. Food is always lovely and coffee is lovely. We really appreciate how friendly and conscientious the staff are. Well done for for finding a safe way to keep going without breaking any rules. Just a feeling of normality going to buy a takeaway coffee and sandwich is a wee treat these days that we no longer take for granted. We have found a place we will gladly continue to visit and look forward to the day we can sit inside.More

Service friendly, helpful, and efficient. Nothing too much of a bother. We had various deliciious breakfasts and they even had decaff tea, Extra toast- brown or white- nae bother. No heartburn, sign of a well-cooked Fry-Up. We plan to return post-Covid and finish up for...a wee drink at the West Port opposite. Thanks to everybody at the Bridge for their cheerful service ... much appreciated especially in these grim timesMore

Afternoon Tea at Bridge Cafe .. excellent! Wow what a great wee place for Afternoon Tea! Staff very friendly and welcoming, clean and following Covid guidelines. You can select your sandwich fillings and the scones, cheesecakes and cakes to die for! They are also full...sized cakes which are homemade and delicious! All for £7.50 each! Unable to eat it all but the staff gave us boxes to take away what we couldn’t manage. I would highly recommend Bridge Cafe. All their food looked delicious, freshly made and served with a smile 😊More
