Me & my friend love coming here because the food is lovely and so are the staff
Amazing smooth cappuccino and the most delicious carrot cake I’ve ever tasted. Will definitely be back!
I brought my daughters to Marco’s kitchen before a show at the Mayflower. The staff were welcoming and attentive staff, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was cosy. We’ll definitely be back again, highly recommended! More...
Great find, was recommended and so glad we were. Amazing salads, huge bowl of fresh crisp ingredients. Lunch time deals were a bargain. Lovely coffee. Very busy but did not effect service. Really lovely friendly staff. Will visit again and definitely recommend. More...
Really happy with the work Marco has done, couldn't ask for anything better. Highly recommend.
Don’t tell the wife but that macaroni today was the best I’ve tasted. Highly recommended.
My daughter and I came in to Marcos kitchen on Thursday quality of food very high. Great service.
Got a delicious caramel latte! Would definitely recommend!

Amazing breakfast! Best around hands down. Marcos a great guy that takes time to talk to his customers!
Popped in for a quick bite to be warmly welcomed with a fantastic friendly service. And the food and coffee were excellent, just to top it off. Would definitely recommend this.
Have been meaning to visit here for a while so was delighted when my daughter suggested it today, 4 of us went and we all had burgers which were cooked to perfection, we all said we will defo be back xx

Amazing scones today. Thank you
Lovely lunch here today. shame we were late (stuck in traffic) and had to eat quickly as heading to the theatre. food was great the omelette was packed with ham cheese and mushrooms. Lovely friendly chap that served us (might be the owner) More...
Stopped here on way to Dunblane from Dunfermline. Staff were lovely, food was delicious. We got a takeaway which took a wee while but was worth it, as all very fresh. We ordered the steak wrap, chorizo and chicken panini and bacon roll. Panini and wrap came with fresh salad and coleslaw. Really enjoyed it and also had the best coffee ever. Thanks to the lovely friendly staff. More...
Amazing lunch today very friendly service huge portions lovely and clean. definitely going back soon for nachos or Mac & cheese decisions decisions ☕

Once again the food was amazing and staff as well,it’s a must for lunch and Dinner.
This wee cosy won't disappoint! Excellent service and outstanding value for homely warming food and cakes... we'll definitely be back and with friends.
Cosy cafe with delicious homemade food ... wholesome and very tasty! Very welcoming staff we'll certainly be back! If you haven't visited this place already put it on your list, you won't be disappointed
There was no draft lager on the taps but the staff were lovely and were very efficient. Food good quality and made fresh and location convenient. It's a shame they are not more busy as the atmosphere is lacking somewhat. Would still recommend due to the friendly welcome! More...
Marco’s enthusiasm for food is obvious. Highly recommend.
Fantastic independent restaurant. Breakfast sandwiches are delicious.
Great chef. Unbeatable food. Fab atmosphere.
Lovely place and friendly staff!!!
Best breakfast in Kincardine. The staff are amazing. You really must stop by.
Variety of food was just right. Food was really good, we all enjoyed different meals. Staff were friendly and efficient. Thoroughly enjoyed our experience.
Came to Marco’s kitchen today, lovely atmosphere, very attentive staff, the food was amazing and they even did gluten free for me, it is so hard to find places that serve gluten free food. Would highly recommend this place, especially if your going to the Theatre, you can book in advance. They have an excellent selection of dishes and can accommodate all dietary requirements. It’s a cosy place and very personal, they have affordable dishes for all. More...
Good food freshly cooked. Clean restaurant, really enjoyed my meal. Near to the Mayflower theatre.
A great place to eat and drink anytime of the day
What a lovely find, close to The Mayflower Theatre, so perfect for a pre show meal. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was delicious. The decor of the restaurant was lovely too. Although perfect for a pre show meal, it would be great for other occasions too . As I visited the restaurant with my niece aged 11, I plan to revisit soon with my husband, as I was so impressed.

Friends & I had tickets for the matinee performance of Wicked, our train got in at 12, so using google earth we looked to see which places were close for lunch, I rang to book & spoke to a lady who gave a selection of times we could choose. I chose a 12.15 booking, on arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome & shown to our table. The lunch menu has a good selection of dishes. We ordered drinks first, while we decided what to have. We selected the sourdough garlic bread with cheese & bacon, a sharing platter with enough for the 3 of us & very tasty, my main was a delicious lasagna & a tasty fresh side salad, my friends choose the caramelised onion & goats cheese salad & the chorizo & chicken salad, they both enjoyed there meals. As we had the show to attend we decided not to have dessert. Service was efficient & with a smile. After seeing Wicked we popped back in before our train, we purchased 6 sicilian cannoli for our return train journey. We shall certainly be returning & cannot recommend Marco’s enough. More...
Really good food , fresh and tasty .
2nd Visit . I recommended on TripAdvisor last visit . Terrific posh breakfast of smoked salmon and scrambled egg today. Might get used to this every day back in Kimberley.
Wonderful service, great food. A perfect place for a catch up
A nice friendly quaint restaurant. Lovely food, great food and friendly ambience. Would recommend you visit and Trey this for yourself.
THE BEST QUALITY & SERVICE
Marco done some catering for us for a hen do this weekend. I told him in advance what I was looking for and he pulled together some great suggestions at a great price. I picked it up from the cafe and the staff were brilliant. Food was absolutely fantastic. Everyone loved it and the leftovers were all taken for Sunday dinner! Thanks again - would definitely recommend and will be in to visit and try some more from the menu! More...
Pre theatre meal with friends. So convenient for Mayflower theatre. Great menu choice & perfect portions. Attentive & very friendly staff. Will definitely go again for longer visit. More...
Delicious food, great atmosphere and friendly staff. X
CXO did the catering for a party we held at home - excellent food and excellent service! the chap that delivered and set the food up couldn't have been more helpful. The portions were on the large size so no worries about running out of food and it was delicious. A great service all round and so easy! More...
Freshly made pasta with goat cheese and sage for lunch ...mmmm loved it and will come back again and again ! Thank you guys for all your hard work and love in quality products , it clearly shines through your food !
1st time here yesterday.They were very accommodating as we hadn't booked a table but they quickly rustled us up one for my son and I. The food was lovely and service very quick. Will certainly visit again . More...
I was looking for a breakfast after coming over from IOW on The Red Jet and wanted an independent near the railway station not an awful American style chain or a ' spoons full of elderly early morning boozzers . The sign outside made me laugh so I was compelled to go in .This was an excellent English Breakfast and in pleasent surroundings with friendly staff. More...
Had a pre-Theatre meal, with group of 8, last Thursday and was excellent. I had the Chicken Burger, friends had various other menu choices and all were raving about how lovely the food was, will certainly book again. Great restaurant, service and staff. Loved the little Sicilian Cannolini with our coffee :-) More...

A great Scottish breakfast with strong coffee to wash it down. Perfect start to a day !
Marco’s Kitchen came up trumps today. Good food, friendly service and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely family get together in the ‘garden’. Highly recommend.
Great wee place. Friendly staff, good quality food prepared with care and passion. Marco well done. We will be back. You made us feel very welcome and it was a joy to see the pride you have in this venture and your craft.
No one can beat their quality work in the current market. Product delivered by Marcos kitchens is way above the other builders or manufacturers in the market. They built my kitchen, laundry and study room about two years ago and I didn’t have a single problem. They went extra mile to help me out. Price was way cheaper than other branded companies and better quality. More...
Marco is a honest and reliable person. He helped us renovate our kitchen provides helpful suggestion during the project. We are very happy with the outcome. Highly recommended. More...
Just had new kitchen, wardrobes and TV unit with Marco's Kitchens, and love it. Professional design, good quality material and friendly services with affordable price, highly recommend.

Had the best breakfast ever on Sunday, eggs benedict was absolutley delish. Thanks Marco ☺️
Great banter and awesome food. However I did take one for the team, after hearing the sob story about how the last can of "minging" san pellegrino was left on the shelf all by itself. Yes I can confirm that it was an experience, it had a heady taste of gingerbread with the sharp flavour of over ripe oranges that were well past their due date. I can confirm I did finish it all and would highly recommend that you never try that flavour again. More...
Really enjoyed our lunch today the chicken nachos were amazing
Love the place - great homely food. Made my mum's day today on her birthday producing a cake for her and her grandson to blow candles out. Keep up the great work Marco and Paula.� More...
