Craigies Farm Café serves up local, wholesome gluten-free fare


We finally managed to get to Craigie’s Farm today with our dog, Piper.  I’ve been meaning to go for a couple of years, but it’s really best reached by car (or bike) and as we only have one bike between the three of us and no car at all, it’s taken us a while to get there.  This weekend, we had a City Car booked for a jaunt around Fife and since the weather was way better than predicted, we took a side trip out to Craigie’s.  Well worth the journey.

Craigie’s Café serves up healthy, locally sourced food, with a gluten-free menu.  On the gf-menu today was the soup of the day (lentil), a variety of salads, frittata and a ploughman’s platter served with gf biscuits.  There were some gluten-free treats as well, including fresh gf shortbread from The Wheat Free Bakery just down the road in Broxburn.  I had the ploughman’s which featured a generous array of cheese, pate, chutney and salads.  My partner enjoyed his non-gf pie with home-grown carrots and greens.  There’s a special (outdoor) area for eating with canines, which was full when we got there, but no one objected to us eating a picnic table on the lawn.

The deli also had a decent gf section, for its size, with a range of products from Scotland and beyond.

Lunch for the two of us (Piper had already eaten) came to £17 including fresh apple juice from the farm.
