We ate here on the last night of our holiday staying at the Kinlochewe Caravan Club Site. We booked a table - as advised to. Excellent choice on the menu - I had the hand dived scallops to start and they were beautiful, followed by haggis pie - which to be honest I wasn't sure about when I ordered but... More

Rucsacs and wet walkers happily accommodated, cheerful and welcoming, good coffee, an amazing passion fruit cake, pleasantly down to earth and informal, and fits in perfectly in this little highland village. Thanks to the incessant rain I didn't even look to see if there's outdoors seating, but it would be a bonus if there is.

My top hate is being served after people who have arrived after me. One person was on the phone loudly sorting out who was going to 'put on the washing' a younger girl told us to take a seat and our orders would be taken. We waited. Others came in and were served. By the time the waitress got to... More

The whistle stop is a really excellent place in many ways and for many purposes. We visited twice during our stay in Wester Ross. We visited our first day in Scotland for a late breakfast/snack, they provided very good home cooked breakfast and had a variety of teas and other hot drinks. We visited again for dinner later that week... More

We have often stopped for a coffee and a cake but we were going to do Liathach the next day and I felt we needed feeding in preparation. Alas, they were full..... but they managed to squeeze us in. I think its fantastic when people remember you have been before and try to accommodate... and they did. The meal wa... More

My husband and I popped in for breakfast and what a gem we found ! The breakfast was freshly prepared and fabulous -just what we needed. Reading the evening meal menu, made us wish we were staying another night in the area !!! It is an independent restaurant/cafe that it is not trying to be like a chain - relaxed... More

This is a very well run cafe/restaurant with a souvenir shop as well. Excellent if you are passing by. It's small, friendly and informal. No coaches so you won't be overwhelmed. Good views. We had tea and cakes. Another group had a meal. The shop is useful for last minute presents or for souvenirs. Recommended. If I have ticked (or... More

From the outside as well as the out of the way location, this cafe doesn't look like much. Once you get inside, though, that all changes. The colors and nick-knacks were the first things to catch my eye followed closely by the local artwork and goods scattered around. We were promptly sat and our order immediately taken. My family and... More

Visited the cafe twice during our trip to Kinlochewe, the first time for dinner and the second time for lunch. Dinner was lovely, there was a choice of specials on a board plus the meals on the main menu. There was no children's menu but the staff were extremely accommodating and soon rustled up some sausage and chips. The cafe... More

Were travelling from Inverness to Poolewe and looked up cafes en route on trip advisor site. What a find- extremely friendly hostess-had excellent coffee and scones. Also made us up a packed lunch. So impressed we are to return to the village just to enjoy dinner here as the menu was so interesting.
