This is a lovely cafe with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff, good coffee and an excellent Scottish breakfast. It's also very good value. Highly recommended.

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.

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.

We stopped at this cafe on our way through the Ben Nevis region. It was clean and the staff was friendly. I was able to get a vegetarian meal which can be a challenge in rural areas. It was quaint and comfortable for a casual bite to eat.

friendly little cafe on Glen Nevis road, with views over Ben Nevis itself if the weather permits. Greeted by a very friendly girl. Soup was out of this world, (pea and ham).Sandwiches were a meal and a half.
