Just what was needed

Was looking for a lunch spot on the way from Plockton to Perth and this fitted the bill. Not too touristy. Quiet and unassuming in the village of Glencoe. Small and very busy. Great freshly prepared food, tasty and with a drinks license. Few wee nik nacks to buy too. In sunnier weather there is a... read more

Disappointing experience - we were provided with a dirty cup and spoon and the staff/owners were smirking and making rude comments about our choice of not having butter with our bacon rolls. Otherwise unremarkable cafe.

We enjoyed a lot this lovely place with warm welcome and excellent scones. We spent a good time there, they serve also homemade cakes (the carott cake is very good). Thanks to all the staff. Just to say : I read the negative comments (1 star) and I can't believe they are genuine customers ones.

A simple exterior hides the 'truly tasty' experience awaiting you inside! After driving through the dramatic Glencoe we stopped for lunch at the Glencoe Cafe in the village. It is a simple building from the outside that you might easily dismiss at first glance, but.... if your looking for good flavoursome food then you must give this place a go.... More

The steaks were excellent and very good value, the fish and chips, scampi and pasta were also good. Bar & eating area downstairs and restaurant upstairs. Service could have been faster, they don't seem to have enough staff.

Popular place with good cafe food. Service was quick and friendly. Broad mix of customers (overseas, cyclists, walkers etc) so a good feel. Parking a little limited but can park on road.

The cafe was cozy and comfortable with a nice mix of locals and hikers, families and friends. The staff was very friendly and the food great! The herbed scone was amazing!

My husband and I stopped in Glencoe Cafe for a quick bite. My husband had the homemade soup and cheese scone with chives and loved it. I wasn't hungry so had a coffee and got a cheese scone with chives to go...yummy! Everything was great and the staff was so nice and attentive here. Worth a stop in for just... More
