A family-run café-bistro serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, along with an à la carte menu in the evening.
This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.
Rawlings is a friendly, family-run affair with lots to offer. On one side of the space is a café with high-backed tweed banquettes where you can happily while a way a morning or afternoon with a coffee and a slice of tablet cheesecake. On the other side is a larger restaurant serving omelettes, poached eggs and smoked salmon for breakfast, as well as salads, sandwiches and burgers at lunchtime. On the street-food menu expect guilty pleasures such as poutine-esque ‘disco fries’ piled with pulled pork, cheddar cheese, chipotle sauce and peppers. Smaller plates include haggis bon-bons served with whisky sauce, tempura seafood and wasabi mayo, or ground chicken lettuce wraps with sesame seeds, micro-herbs and a hint of lemongrass. Staff are both personable and hospitable – making that morning breakfast roll, late afternoon tea, or early evening dinner that little bit special.
