What used to be the MacKinnon (of Drambuie) family’s luxury car garage is now a large tearoom and shop, one long side dominated by a multicoloured array of F&D confectionery. Chocolates at one end – see the chocolatier making them – stovies and soup at the other, fudge doughnuts, steak pies and sticky buns to boggle the imagination in between. Behind the counter is where the baking happens, almost entirely still by hand. Also out of sight above you is the most obvious embodiment of the company’s efforts to reduce carbon consumption: enough solar panels to pump out over 1000kw of power each month. In 2013 the bakery introduced their 24-hour bakery to St Andrews - a hot vending machine that rattles out a pie, stovies or fudge doughnut in less than a minute.

From Fife to Oman: well travelled fudge doughnuts

21 Jun 2012

Fisher & Donaldson's doughnuts were an RAF troops' dream come true

Most of us treat our colleagues by bringing a packet of biscuits into the office - for one RAF squadron leader, getting a box of doughnuts to work required a plane, a 4x4 and a boat.

Visited last Friday for lunch - chaotic. Long wait to be served and tables slow to be cleared. However, to my horror I then witnessed a young man, whom I assume was connected to the business but wearing his outdoor clothing, march up behind the counter in the bakery section and help himself to a bread roll from the baskets on display.
Without further ado he then went over to the sandwich fillings in the chilled cabinet and made himself a sandwich! Unacceptable standard of hygiene and a total disrespect for patrons! Needless to say I won't be going back.

Latest of our regular trips (from Edinburgh) to F&D on last Sunday. We go for the Stovies (in my case), Soup (in her case) and the fudge doughnuts (both). Other honourable mentions go to the takeaway bridies, cakes and chocolates. A true Scottish company of the old school which makes quality products. We have always found staff pleasant, and it's great to park just outside. Maybe they have the own way of doing things, but stick to what they are good at (as above) and you'll enjoy it. Kingarrock Hickory Golf Course is just up the road and a complete hoot.

Very disappointed with my recent visit to this good looking cafe near to Cupar station.
I had:
Bacon roll and cappuccino
* Microwaved bacon
* Terribly weak coffee
* Abrasive staff
* 50p extra due to paying by card (all purchases under a tenner and no cash machine nearby!)
I ate the roll which was passable. However I did comment that the cappuccino was too weak, to which the manager said "that is the way the coffee comes, if you want it stronger you'll have to buy an extra shot". Her manner was very off-hand and dismissive.
Hence, initial cost £5.65 was bumped up to £7.45! THAT is too much for the location, in fact I'd baulk at paying that at a London airport!
