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

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.
