This place is hidden away in Glencoe village. You have to drive down a rather rutted driveway to park--but there is parking, which is always a plus! The place is big enough to usually nab a table but still is small enough to be cozy and warm. Excellent coffee, tasty cakes and very friendly staff.

Pulled off the main A82 road into Glencoe village late afternoon on a January week day and came across the Glencoe Cafe. Wasn't expecting much as it was getting near to their closing time. A warm welcome from the gentleman at the counter. Easy to access free Wi-Fi and within minutes the food order arrived. While it was a pretty... More

After the power cut in glencoe (8th 9th and 10th Jan 15) we were thrilled to find somewhere to get a hot meal and cup of tea. Breakfast was quite small considering the excessive price (over £7 each) but cafe itself is quite nice and staff were pleasant.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Cafe. I note your comments regarding the price of our Breakfast. I can confirm that we do charge £7.50 for our Full Scottish Breakfast. This does in fact consist of 2 rashers of smoked back bacon, a free range fried or scrambled egg, Heinz baked beans, a thick slice of Scottish... More

Trip to area and based on prev reviews thought we'd try here for a coffee. Does not look too inviting from the outside but decided to park, in what we think was the cafe parking, as it seems shared with a B&B. Pleased we did. Table service and lovely Flat White Coffee..scones looked yummy as did the rocky road and... More

What a wonderful little cafe in this town. It was definitely the high spot. Food is homemade and the sweets irresistible. We're sorry they were not open for dinner because we would have had all our meals here.

Yum, opted for a latte & a slice of paridise cake. Wow, just wow. tasted outstanding! Soft & crumbled, moist with a perfect filling of jam ( handmade, so i was informed ) A true gem of a place. Expencive, but you get what you pay for.

We went here on the strength of these reviews, and we were not disappointed. The cafe is great for your hearty lunch meal. The soup was delicious, and the hug in a mug was a wee gem to finish off the meal. Staff really nice and friendly.
