This review is taken from the 2010 edition.
There can be few cafes in Fife with a situation as pleasant as the Biscuit Café. Set just off the scenic waterfront of the historic village of Culross, it’s reached either through the tourist-attracting Pottery and Gallery or via a leafy patio seating area set into a series of allotments rising away from the building. The café itself leans towards the chintzy, but there’s a homely freshness about this sturdy glass-roofed extension which sets it apart from tired tourist trail stops. The food reflects a sense of enjoyment and local pride, from the array of scones hand-baked daily by owner Niall Campbell to the homemade soups, while the sandwiches use Puddledub ham, summer vegetables and salad from Culross Palace gardens and brown sourdough from the Steamie Bakehouse. Artisan Roast coffee, Nelson’s ice-cream and locally-made, gluten-free cakes are also on the small but perfectly formed menu.

A homely freshness and sense of local pride is evident in everything here, from the homemade scones and soups to the vegetables and salad sourced from Culross Palace gardens.
