The Rhynd Café near Leuchars opened in June last year and has just launched a new menu, championing Fife food.
Based at the Rhynd Farm, it sells fruit grown only metres from the café, and uses the likes of Kirkcaldy's Puddledub, St. Andrews' Minick and The Pittenweem Chocolate Company.
It uses Fife beef in its new burgers - served with cheese, bacon, paprika mayonnaise and chipotle sauce - and makes the most of the fruit being grown on the doorstep.
"Fife has some great producers and suppliers," commented Ed Foster, a partner in the Rhynd Café, "and we're delighted we can offer some of their food in the Café. Usually the strawberries and raspberries are sent off to be weighed and sealed before being available to buy, but we make sure they don't leave the farm so that they're as fresh as you'll find anywhere in the world. It makes a huge difference to the taste."
"It's also great to find the likes of The Pittenweem Chocolate Company - when we launched last year we were using a mainstream company for our hot chocolate. We changed that pretty quickly after discovering the Chocolate Company and the feedback's been great. Yes, it's slightly more expensive, but it's worth it."
The Rhynd Café is open Friday-Sunday and has an ever-changing menu. More details can be found here:
