One of Scotland’s best loved seaside food shacks, The Harbour Café in Elie has reopened, offering a new dinner menu for the very first time, as well as lunch Wednesday to Sunday. With the addition of a charcoal fired oven chef Amy Elles has also launched a new menu range to include hot fish, seafood and meat dishes. The cafe is located right on the harbour overlooking the stunning sands of Elie Beach in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife, which boasts the most days of sunshine in the country.
The Café is run by husband-and-wife team Amy and Jack Elles. For the new lunch and dinner service menu items will include:
Asparagus & Brown Crab Mayonnaise
Tomato & Strawberry Gazpacho
Fish Of The Day
Bbq'd 1/2 Lobster
Organic Balcaskie Cold Rare Roast Beef
All Served With Patatas Aliñas, East Neuk Market Garden Salad,
Aioli, Lemon & Sourdough
Tarta De Santiago
Strawberries & Toblerone Sauce
Cheese & Honey
Amy and Jack will source local heritage breed beef and lamb from nearby Balcaskie Estate, prepared by the Butchery at Bowhouse alongside organic fresh produce from East Neuk Market Garden also at Bowhouse food hub. And, of course, the Pittenweem landed langoustines and lobster for which they are famous.
Fans of cooking programmes may also recognise Amy from the BBC TV series “Great British Menu” where she represented Scotland in 2020 and 2021. Recently the pair were invited to cook for royalty when the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Fife.
In the last year The Harbour Café has gained a new UK wide following with fans ordering The Harbour Café at Home hampers, brimming with prepared lobster, langoustines, oysters & wine pairings and wowing critics such as Tom Parker – Bowles and William Sitwell.
The Harbour Café will be open Wednesday – Sunday from 12pm – 3pm and 6pm-8pm. Bookings are now open for making a reservation online.
