Called in for a tea/coffee as we were going walking near Ben Eighe. Recommended by chap in charge of Visitor Centre and were thrilled to find comfortable, professional and homely tea room/restaurant. We only had cake/scone and pot of (loose leaf) tea this time but shall certainly return for breakfast and lunches whenever we are over this way! Obviously close... More

I've only had coffee and scones here but they were flipping brilliant. I had it to take away. They even put butter and jam on the scones. I know that sounds a bit "yeah so what" but it was a nice change to be offered something like that to take away. A lot of places look at you like you've... More

Popped in on spec after a walk and immediately met with a genuinely friendly welcome. They even have a 'doggie' table which is a real plus. Really enjoyed our meal, courgette tart and the chicken pitta, so thought we'd try the key-lime pie - foolish us only ordered one to share, big mistake! It is delicious! Food is cooked to... More

We came across the Whistle Stop Café while looking for refreshments in October. Most places were shut but luckily this one was open. Went in and had an afternoon tea, complete with scones, jam and fresh cream. So good we went back later in the week for a full breakfast, all lovely cooked and lots of variations to choose from....

I loved this cafe it opened long hours and served excellent cakes in the afternoons and three course meals in the evenings. It opens longer in the season than other times - up to the end of September.

We had been travelling around the coastal road from Loch Broom to Garve and had had a disappointing time with eateries and were desperately in need of a lovely Scottish afternoon tea. We spotted The Whistle Stop and were so pleased we stopped as it was such a lovely place with an excellent menu and such nice ladies all welcoming... More

We visited twice during a memorable week in Kinlochewe. The Whistle Stop is the best restaurant/eaterie in the area by an absolute mile. Excellent food in generous but not ridiculous portions and friendly and informative staff. An easy 5 out of 5.

Wow. What a wonderful place. From outside doesn't look much, but step into a warm and welcoming cafe. The menu choices were amazing, such a choice for a small place and everything freshly cooked to order. The coffee was one of the best ever, eat your heart out Costa, you have real competition here. I don't understand how so many... More

We were so happy to be able to have another meal at our FAVE restaurant in the UK. We were in Kinlochewe on a Sunday when cafe is closed, so we were not able to go there for dinner BUT the next morning we went to select a picnic lunch to take with us. It was hard to choose because... More
