What a find! Up there with my best cafes ever!

Stopped off for lunch. Gorgeous wee place with eclectic decor, nice chunky tables, a warm welcome, interesting art and a cosy stove! Had delicious food. Son said it was the best egg mayo sandwich ever. Tasty soup, imaginative salad and puddings to die for. Also the first decent mug of coffee in a... read more

This was a real find! Having found that most places stopped serving lunch at 2pm we were so relieved to find this open! Although the exterior is a little underwhelming, the interior is really welcoming and the food excellent and very well presented. Friendly staff without being too fussy. Wouldn't hesitate to go back or to recommend.

After a week hill walking in the stunning Toridonian scenery we decided to have our last evening meal at the Whistlestop. The food was excellent, with the highlight being the Key Lime Pie. We all thoroughly enjoyed our evening in this quirky little eatery. I wish we had gone in earlier in the week as we would have visited again.... More

It was last summer that our family of 4 dined at this marvelous restaurant. To this day, we still talk about it often. The way they prepared the food was creative and extraordinary. Everything we had was super delicious and nothing ordinary at all. My husband ordered a hamburger and he will continue to say to whomever will listen that... More

This little gem of a cafe is just off the main road to Gairloch, towards Torridon, and is a delight! It's just how you want a tearoom/ cafe to be - freshly cooked food, wonderful cakes, real teapots, comfy sofas, Woodburner and a very welcoming owner. Staff excellent. You will want to return for sure.

The Scottish "mist" had been beautifully relentless when we undertook this scenic route between Inverness and Skye. On the advise in a travel forum in Tripadvisor, we timed our trip to stop here for a cuppa and some hot food - and what a wonderful decision that was. A very welcoming greeting, wood fire going, hot hot chocolate and fresh... More
