Like many beach side sites seasonality has proved a problem for cafes in Aberdour over the years. That was until Nova and Ervin Gamble took over Sands Cafe two years ago. Now the Bistro at Silver Sands is open all year round. In winter the cafe is still busy with walkers on the popular Fife Coastal Path and since a travel site highly rated the cafe’s disabled access the location has proved popular with wheelchair users.
Serving the usual favourites such as paninis, baked potatoes and home baking – all food is made to order – the seafood chowder is the most popular dish. If you’d rather have a picnic on the blue flag beach, the cafe also provides a takeaway service for their full menu. Open seven days a week 10am-5pm although check their facebook page for opening hours during December, January and February.
