I am very boring but I always have the same thing when I go in here. That is because it is so good, fresh and burstingly full. I don't know if burstingly is a real word but the sandwiches are burstingly full !!! I have...More

What a charming coffee stop! Good food too, and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere with attentive staff. Just across the street from Rothesay castle and ideally placed after a gentle stroll along Rothesay's main street or up from the harbour. Thoroughly recommended.

Musicker is a cafe/music retailer/bookshop set up in 2002 by Sue & John Dennis, to serve good coffee for the palate and good music for the ear. In the cafe we also stock music tablature, music CD's Canongate books and, of course, coffee, italian cakes and wonderful toasted paninis. We now make delicious and original soups and sandwiches, too.
