Fantastic Scottish Breakfast

Small and busy cafe in Glencoe. We went for the Scottish breakfast and it was delicious. Just the right size too, big but not too big that you end up wasting food. Friendly staff and good service.

Perfect stop to dry off and warm up from the inside. Great homemade food and friendly service. Great representation of modern Scotland.

We enjoyed our visit to the café. The scones are the best I have ever had. The coffee is proper good coffee. If it wasn't that far away I'd definitely come back

I visited upon recommendation of a friend and the experience didn't disappoint. The cafe itself is a little hidden away and has limited seating but don't that let put you off. The decor is homely and there's local art, photography and confectionary displayed. The menu serves a light lunch with limited but good options - tea, coffee (lattes, cappuccino etc),... More

Freshly cooked, all home-made breakfasts and lunches, Glencoe Cafe is a little retreat just a couple of hundred yards off the main road. Simple fayre but just right if you are passing through and need a light lunch. Friendly staff, quick service, clean and tidy dining room. Doesn't get much better than this

At the end of Glencoe this small and friendly cafe is well placed to provide a light lunch. We had jacket potatoes with cheddar cheese which were excellent. We took away with us two slices of a homemade cake. Give it a try if you in the area at lunchtime.

I had a salmon salad. My partner had a sandwich. The sandwich was accompanied by a handful of potato crisps. The servings weren't large and we felt the offering was below value. My sense is that the main attraction the cafe has for passing backpackers and touring cyclists is that it offers free wifi!

We called in after a walk up the Pap of Glencoe to rest our weary feet and review our bruises (!) the friendly staff served up a soothing pot of tea and we shared a nice home made scone. Nice on both scores :)
