THE last slice of cake and cup of tea has been served at the Heaven Scent cafe in Dunfermline.

The popular business inside Dunfermline Carnegie Library & Galleries (DCL&G) has now closed for good as the pandemic has made the cafe "unsustainable".

Its owners took to social media to post the following statement on Facebook: "We know that you are all eager to hear news from us about the reopening of Heaven Scent DCLG and we apologise for the lack of social media posts.

"The effects of COVID-19 have left us in the unfortunate position that the café has become unsustainable.

"Therefore, it is with a heavy heart that we have made the extremely tough decision not to re-open Heaven Scent DCLG.

"We would like to thank ONFife (Fife Cultural Trust) and Fife Council for allowing us the opportunity to work in such an amazing venue with stunning views of the Abbey.

"Most of all we would like to thank you, our very loyal customers for your continued support for the last three years.

"We have loved serving you and will miss you all.

"With much love and thanks – the DCLG Heaven Scent team."

The cafe opened in May 2017 as part of the £12.4 million Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries, run by ONFife (Fife Cultural Trust).

A spokesperson for ONFife said: "We know our customers and team at Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries are going to miss Heaven Scent too.

"These are indeed challenging times and we wish them the very best with future ventures.

"We will update customers with news about the cafe space as soon we can."

All of the trust's other cafes across their venues currently remain closed.
