We stopped into Loving Food for breakfast, having been drawn in by the appealing menu. The granola and scone were ordered were excellent, as was the coffee. But my husband's porridge was incredibly salty. As this was our first morning in Scotland, we were unsure whether it was a typical preparation. So, we didn't say anything. But after many more samples of porridge, clearly there was a mistake. Either the chef double-salted the dish or perhaps mistook salt for sugar. Regardless, our one small issue shouldn't deter diners from patronizing this restaurant. If we had been in Stirling for a second day, we would have returned.

Hi there. Thank you for trying us out on your visit. I'm really sorry the porridge wasn't on form as it normally is. I've had a word with the kitchen and it appears it could have just been over-salted in error. We aim to have awesome food and amazing service so looks like on this dish we didn't meet our target. We have ensured this won't happen again. We hope you had a great visit to Stirling.

Visited Loving Food for the first time this morning and was super impressed! We sat outside on King Street and enjoyed delicious coffees. Would really like to return to sample some food.

I had been looking forward to trying Loving Food for dinner since it opened a few ago. I had popped in on opening week for a coffee and it was excellent. Dinner didn't disappoint either!
The food was brilliant, tasty and reasonably priced.
Stirling really lacks this kind of informal cafe/ restaurant, with all the rest being a bit dated or below average.
They are only open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and open 'til 5 the rest of the week. I'm quite sure I'll be returning soon for breakfast or lunch - and I'll definitely be back for dinner!

The food is absolutely DE LI CIOUS.
A broad choice of healthy and less healthy tasty menu.
I ordered a meditarranean veggies with honey goat cheese, that was stunning served with pesto sauce.
Also french fries were home made and rightly cooked.
The whole meal was served with a smile, and nice warming attitude, which has not been plenty in all other places and pub.
