Really good fair trade coffee, made with real espresso! Lovely home cooked treats, even if the scones weren't available when we went there.

Coffee and carrot cake on Saturday was bliss. Nice young ladies serving. We sat outside as we had our dog with us and watched the various exhausted Ben Nevis Challenge participants go by.

Have been staying at the Glen Nevis Lodges and the reception area is next to the Cafe. So thought we would try the Hot Chocolate and Whiskey cake, could not be faulted, with a roaring fire on the corner and comfy chairs. A perfect place to visit on a wet day and there are plenty of those. Also right next... More

What a great cafe to find near the Glen Nevis Campsite. A good pot of tea and a pulled pork burger on a brioche bun for me and a lager and goat's cheese salad for him were just the ticket after our morning's walk. Loved watching the baby swallows being fed by their parents and encouraged to leave the nest... More

the staff are friendly. Good healthy portions served freshly made. The cafe was clean and airy looks better after its revamp. The soup was hot and tasty and the sandwiches freshly prepared.

A lovely cosy cafe with a great view of Ben Nevis. The menu wasn't large but it was still difficult to choose as looking at what the other diners had made it difficult as it all looked lovely and all very well presented. I chose the full Scottish Breakfast and it was excellent. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.... More

I wrote a review last year for this café as I enjoyed many visits. This year in March 2014 I returned to my season pitch in the Glen to find the café has changed hands, new staff, new decor and new menu a wonderful selection of cake and best of all a new coffee machine! This is a really pleasant... More
