Stella that she is thrilled to be at the Fife Folk Museum, and is offering customers “a little corner of wonderland”

“Our little space is also full of pretty vintage finds, up cycled furniture and a little added splash of whatever takes our fancy!

“We  really do hope that customers enjoy out eclectic surrounding, lovingly prepared food including our homemade dressing, jams , chutney and ketchup…. and the attention of our lovely hard working staff who will always do their very best to make visits pleasurable.”
