The softly opening Ferg n Lou's is a very welcome addition to the Helensburgh and Lomond area's cafe scene. Located in Garelochhead, on Main Street, the now transformed cafe offers a warm welcome, very reasonably priced tasty food and the awesome coffee that can only be from the Cardross based Home Ground Coffee
Having only meant to drop in for coffee, a glance at the menu meant we were clearly going to stay for food and at only £3 for a warm, well filled bagel there was no reason not to. One of our party, after an active morning, went for the "Breakfast Bunny Chow" and when it came out, I experienced a pin prick of regret that I'd already had a decent breakfast and really couldn't justify having a second one. A light brioche bun filled with beans, cherry tomatoes, mushrooms, bacon, sausage and egg with peppery rocket on the side. It was declared delicious and just the right amount.
iI can see Ferg n Lou's swiftly becoming a popular place for a quick, light bite to eat or a place to linger over great coffee and cake. The customers today were a diverse bunch from walkers to sailors, ladies who lunch and workmen stopping off on their break. I love the South African influence, the simple yet bold flavours and the freshness of their food.
Big thumbs up.
