Restaurant Review – The Coffee Press

This review is from a meal we had at The Coffee Press, Kilmarnock on Monday 16th September 2019. Enjoy!

Main –
Haggis and Cheese Toastie
I like haggis but I don’t usually combine it with cheese, and I don’t think I’ve ever actually had it in a toastie before, but that’s apparently a mistake on my part because this meal was top notch. The haggis was rich and flavourful and was complimented perfectly by the cheese. It was especially good on brown bread. I recommend mixing it with the slaw for an extra punch of flavour. Speaking of which, the coleslaw was fresh, creamy and super tasty, It was also made of red onion which was a nice change from the usual slaw and a big plus for me cause I love red onions. Lastly the side salad was fresh and tasty, I would have liked more cucumber but overall it was very nice, with a lovely dressing.


Cheese and Ham Toastie (with Lentil Soup)
Tori: Overall very good. The soup I felt a little watery but didn’t taste watery, in fact it was very flavourful, and very tasty. The toastie was also nice, good ingredients, and went perfectly with the soup. I also appreciate that they let me remove something from the toastie, to suit my preferences.


Drinks –
The latte was rich and full of flavour. Strong without being bitter or overpowered. And being fair trade you can feel good about your choice with every sip.


Staff/service –
The Staff at the Coffee Press were polite and happy enough to answer questions, and willing to make changes to the menu based on preference which is good. The food was served quickly, and was well presented.

Bonuses –
The cafe has a really nice aesthetic, cosy and inviting without being too cute or kitschy, and it has an awesome history, situated on the site of the former newspaper office for the Kilmarnock Standard.
