There may be no such thing as a free lunch but if you mention ‘Avocado Sweet’ at The Harbour Cafe Tayport  this weekend, you can claim a free coffee or tea on us! The Harbour Cafe is a delightful little place serving homemade soup, sandwiches and cakes – all most welcome after a bracing walk on the vast, windswept expanse of nearby Tentsmuir Beach.

The Cafe, which overlooks Tayport Harbour, is a social enterprise run by volunteers for the benefit of the local community. Staff range in age from 14 to 74 and include several members of staff with special needs. The cafe also functions as a gallery space and a meeting place for mother and baby groups. It  opened for business in 2011 and so far has been a roaring success. Manager Sharon says, ‘we’re happy to be run off our feet!’

The cafe is open Monday to Saturday from 9.30am to 4pm. If you’re heading up to north Fife this weekend pop in and claim your free hot drink – tell them Avocado Sweet sent you!
