In its place we get a buy one get one free deal, with a kebab shop pizzeria taking over the main shop front and Samsun’s old sit-in (although no-one ever did) restaurant converted into a bright and rather charming little cafe and takeaway called Shorty’s. I popped in for a breakfast visit.
The friendly counter woman and owner were both full of cheery banter as I asked them all about the place. They’ve made a really good job of transforming the space into a light and airy cafe. I was impressed.
I was in simple breakfast roll mood, so opted for bacon and haggis on a brown roll with brown sauce. This was freshly prepared to order. I was soon on my way with item in hand.
It proved really tasty eating with both the roll and the filling of pleasing quality. It hit the nail squarely on the head.
So overall, it’s great to see Shorty’s making such great use of what was a neglected cafe space. I was entirely charmed by the place and would recommend a visit.
