Adam Smith Theatre Cafe Bar
I’ve done a little bit of questing in Fife, most notably in Dunfermline at the Stage Door and Grill 48, and Aberdour at McTaggart’s, but Kirkcaldy was virgin territory to me. Having disembarked the train on a dreadfully rainy day, I spotted the Adam Smith Theatre so headed there to check out their lunchtime offering.
I discovered a spacious cafe bar that had a bit of a strange feel to it. It radiated a rather similar feel to rather sad railway cafes, like the ones in Dundee or Perth.
I took a look at the menu and it again had that same sense about it.
I ordered the soup of the day, which was Scotch broth. It promptly arrived looking much as expected. It proved to be OK without really quickening the pulse. It was just a trifle thin and drab.
I’d asked for a cheese toastie to follow. This came accompanied by a decently fresh salad and a dollop of crunchy coleslaw. Again, this was in the “fine” territory without raising much in the way of interest. The bread had a slightly odd, cardboard-like texture, too.
So overall, while the welcome was quite warm and friendly, the Adam Smith Theatre Cafe Bar was pretty underwhelming. It did the job of addressing lunchtime hunger, but did so in fairly uneventful fashion. Next time I’m in these parts, I’ll try somewhere else.
