By far the best coffee in Milngavie and Bearsden... not much else needs to be said really... but if you go in the morning you can also get a bacon and black pudding roll... cant do better than that!

A group of us dropped in for late lunch after a cold winter walk in Mugdock Park. The paninis and wraps were tasty but, the fillings were a we bit sloppy, the cake was good and the coffee was great.

On boxing day the kids were feeling little cabin fever so we decided to head to Mugdock country park. Seemed everyone else had this idea.

We decided to get in out of the cold and enjoy a treat. It was very busy but they were dealing with it very well considering it had been Christmas the day before. We met some neighbours with their child and we all sat and enjoyed lovely hot chocolate and some bakes.

Was just perfect for festive period.

Would love to try again in the future. I loved that it's named after the elephant that used to live at Mugdock zoo. Lovely piece of history for the kids to enjoy. Thank you for a lovely day.
