Lovely lounge area for sitting and enjoying a cuppa, reading a paper, etc. Basic bakery goods (croissants, pain au chocolat, etc). Coffee and tea. No hot food.

A great place to relax after enjoying Glen Nevis. We had a lovely visit and managed to get the comfy leather recliner seats where we enjoyed the fast free wifi while we had a coffee and snack. Although I'd heard the cakes were fantastic, I had a home made sausage roll which was delicious and very reasonably priced. I was... More

This is a really lovely, cosy cafe to have a hot drink on a miserable rainy day :-) Hubby said his coffee was really good.

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.
