We only had coffee as we'd already eaten, but it was very nice, Lovely old restored station carriage, with stunning views. Friendly efficient service, and we even got free tickets to the station museum, which was an added bonus. Next time we're in Glenfinnan we'll come back for some food.

I had a lovely pot of tea and a piece of really yummy flapjack, and relaxed while waiting for a train and admiring the scenery, and browsing through a book of Scottish recipes which was at the cafe.

Hard to know how this experience could be improved upon. The welcome is warm and personal, the food is locally sourced and home cooked. Sandwich fillings are plentiful, soup is generous. Come here and recharge your soul!

Funky amazing place to eat. Too many nice little touches to mention. Good food nicely presented by friendly efficient staff. Loved the music and the view is like a painting.

We hiked across from the monument for some lunch and it could not have been better. Lovely food, freshly prepared and beautifully presented. Wonderful warm friendly service and not to mention the rather different but terrific setting. The carriage is so comfortable and cosy. This place is well worth a visit and I wouldn't hesitate to return, in fact, I'll... More

Very welcoming and friendly staff. Didn't have time to eat but we will be back. We also visited the museum which is very interesting and the trip through Rannoch Moor on the train is superb.
