A brief history of our Peace & Plenty Cafe 

It's built on the site of the Peace & Plenty, a nineteenth-century colliers' row built to house the workers of Capringtons Pits that was renowned for its neat flower pots and immaculate gardens.

The Peace & Plenty became Kilmarnock's last colliers row and was finally demolished in 1955. All that remains of that era is the low wall you can see from the Coffee Shop window that runs the length of the Garden Centre.

The name dates back to an ancient inn with the custom of giving travellers a generous supply of oat cake and cheese to accompany his or her dram!
