Café culture makes welcome return at popular visitor spot in heart of historic quarter 

3 April 2023

A museum eatery that had become a thing of the past during the pandemic has reopened its doors.

The new café at Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries – to be known as The Granary at DCLG – is the latest venture for hospitality specialist OWI, which owns four successful café/bars in the Lothians as well as the hotel, restaurant and bar 1703 Dunfermline.

The first floor eating space – which offers spectacular views over gardens, Dunfermline Abbey and the Heritage Quarter – is set to become a go-to destination for great coffee and mouth-watering modern food.

Tracy McCafferty, Venue Manager at DCLG, said: “We’re thrilled to have a café open again as it’s been much missed by visitors, who have already been giving The Granary glowing reports. To be working with a company whose values, passion and commitment to quality and innovation match our own ambitions for DCLG is the icing on the cake.

“It’s a fantastic setting and now has a café offering to match and we can’t wait to welcome visitors old and new.”

OWI Development Manager Kieran Conner said: “I am so excited to be bringing The Granary brand to Dunfermline and working alongside OnFife at the DCLG cafe. We are looking forward to a long partnership.”
