Food. Cafe Millbrae Inverkeithing

We love the idea of good homemade soup and meals from locally sourced food.
The service is pleasant, the tables are clean.
It is very good value for money.

An added bonus is that Karen sells her home-made butter and jams.

It is only 2 miles from the holiday cottage and campsite.
