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.

A hearty and warm hello was a good sign as we went in to this odd little cafe. Interesting menu with real food made a nice change from usual offerings. Artwork and mismatched crockery kept up the feel. Lovely food, good coffee, friendly service, games for kids, books etc. All in, a wee joy in one of the most beautiful... More

Visiting or passing through Kinlochewe try this friendly Cafe. We were there for 2 days and were advised via Trip Advisor that they served a lovely breakfast so we tried it. Breakfast was superb, staff were friendly so we went back for an evening meal and then again the following day for another breakfast. Evening meal was of the highest... More

Proper freshly brewed tea, strainer provided, sugar tongs and china sugar bowl, delicious scones, the best raspberry jam, and a very warm welcome. Like a visit to your granny's! Definitely will return.

Friends suggested we pop in for coffee when passing. SO GLAD we did! Coffee and scones were very good, but one look at the menu and selection boards was enough to book up for Dinner the following night. Four of us arrived and treated to food of the highest quality. Each chose different items from the menu and all sampled... More

Visited twice in 5 days while staying at the Caravan Club site just around the corner. Great menu and great cooking. Owner and staff very pleasant and helpful. Place is full of character and open throughout the day, but it advisable to book for the evening as it was full both evenings we were there and had to turn people... More

The cafe looks a bit basic from the outside, although the fresh paint helps. But the charm is on the inside. Characters all, the staff and the food was not just better than expected (given the wriggly tin exterior), it was perfectly prepared, imaginative food. Be careful with the mocha it's a trap...you'll need a second one. Prices are good... More

Ready for a guilt-free lunch and not disappointed, the warmth of the wood stove was equalled by the warmth of the welcome. Service was cheerful, with just the right measure of attention. Food was freshly cooked and worth waiting for. A veritable, veggie heaven-not the usual, Highland offering of macaroni cheese-but several choices, made it difficult to decide and behoves... More
