Built on the site of the Peace & Plenty, a nineteenth century colliers row built to house the workers of Capringtons Pits, renowned for their neat flower pots and well-tended 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 however dates back to an ancient inn "with the custom of giving the traveller a liberal supply of oat cake and cheese to his dram."

With friendly waitresses who offer table service, fresh in-house bakery products and a large selection of good food on the menu, come to the Peace & Plenty Coffee Shop!
