About Us

About One Cove Road


The owners of One Cove Road, Mariessa and Bernie Devlin were former customers for many years and this place is special to us. It is the place where we come to take time out from the world, it is the place where we have lunch with our young daughter Roisin and the place where Mariessa gets friend therapy every Saturday morning with one of her best friends.

Our vision for One Cove Road is very simple, we want to be the coffee shop of choice within Inverclyde and beyond.  We want our guests to experience the excellent service, the delicious tastes, the tantalising aroma and the beautiful cove views all to be found in abundance at One Cove Road.

As Roald Dahl once said ‘There are no strangers in here just friends you haven’t met’….so do come along and join us at One Cove Road, Gourock.


Our Baking

Baking is our speciality, our forte. Our cakes are the heart and soul of our coffee shop. Our fabulous baker Helen, lovingly produces an amazing array of cakes, sponges, tarts, loaves, tray bakes, scones and meringues.

On entering our coffee shop, our tower of huge chewy meringues will be the first thing to catch your eye. Served with freshly whipped cream and fresh berries, they are a One Cove Road favourite.

Our scones are legendary and very hard to resist. Baked fresh on the premises each morning, there are usually four different varieties to choose from.

We are always experimenting with new recipes and flavours so, in addition to all our classic favourites, you can also expect to find something just that little bit different.

We invariably have a gluten free option available too and we endeavour to introduce more dairy free and sugar free cakes to our selection.

One Cove Road Coffee

Our Tea and Coffee

A huge amount of time, effort, thought and research went into choosing our tea and coffee suppliers. We tried, tested and tasted innumerable blends from countless producers and outlets before making our final decision. In the end, it just had to be Matthew Algie for our coffee and Eteaket for our tea, whatsmore they are both Scottish companies.

Matthew Algie created the world’s first triple certified coffee, meaning that it is approved by the Fairtrade Foundation, the Rainforest Alliance and the Organic Food Federation. Above all else however, our principle consideration was taste and Matthew Algie coffee is absolutely delicious! Our customers often comment that nowhere else sells coffee like ours, so with this in mind, our trained baristas aim to deliver a truly exceptional cup of freshly ground organic coffee every time.

At One Cove Road we also know that 165 million cups of tea are drank daily – so tea is the UK’s number one hot drink. With this in mind, we are delighted to have recently expanded our range of award-winning Eteaket Tea and are the only suppliers of this Edinburgh based brew in Inverclyde.

Eteaket tea identified that the UK tea is still a prisoner in its own tea bag, so have developed a wide range of loose leaf tea now offered at One Cove Road. Perfectly served in our new clear teapots, One Cove Road’s new ‘Flowering Tea’ range is expertly hand-sewn by skilled artisans and blossoms beautifully in front of customers. These incredibly beautiful and delicate teas have a fantastic subtle taste and are great as a bit of a treat. Allowing the loose leaf tea to float freely, One Cove Road now serve them in our new range of Magic Tea Presses, an ingenious way to serve the perfect cuppa!

The Flowering Tea ranges joins an extensive list of tea options offered included iced blends, herbal and fruit infused teas – a blend for everyone!

Join us for a cuppa!
