The phrase 'community cafe' is bandied about a lot - mostly, it seems to describe places that sell exotic, organic foods - but the Dougie Mac Cafe in Meir really is what I would call a proper community cafe.
It's bright, cheap, friendly, sociable, has plenty of room, serves good basic food - and is popular.
It helps of course that the cafe is one part of the large charity-store in the town-centre, which raises hundreds of thousands of pounds for the local Douglas Macmillan Hospice. The items are so cheap that you can go there, spend very little, and yet still feel as though you've had some retail therapy!
And then, it's time for a cup of tea.
