Nice cafe, friendly staff

Popped in here for coffee to take shelter from the rain whilst taking a stroll through the village. Nice coffee, good scones, friendly staff. Other food on offer looked good and homemade.

A very nice café, very clean and welcoming and offering good food at reasonable prices. It was very pleasant eating outside with the glen and the mountains around us.

Good sandwich, reasonable prices and decent service. You won't go wrong here. We ate outside because there was a family inside with, like, 400,000 children under the age of 4 so we decided to fight the midgies instead of watch 2 parents unsuccessfully try to control what had become an all out booger flicking war.

So, the last time I ate here I found it to be below par. Unfortunately the owner seemed to take the criticism personally and even appeared to blame me for their own short-comings. Having said that, I'm pleased to say that on this occasion the experience was a significant improvement over the last.

The sandwich was okay but nothing to write home about. The scones and cake however were very good. The sandwich was okay but nothing to write home about. The scones and cake however were very good.

Located on the back road it's a lovely surprise to eat in. The staff were great and the food and service spot on. WiFi was great as well. We just stumbled onto it and completely reccomend it.
