Friendly place

Great place for snacks, light meals. Soup of the day with a cheese scone deal was ideal. Can get busy as it is not so large and has some car parking at the rear.

On a winter and rainy day, this small cafe is an excellent pace for home made soup and a cup of nice coffee. It is not far from the Glencoe crossroads bus stop.

I went there for late lunch with my family and I was not too impressed. The place isn't a bad cafe but it does seem to specialize in cakes, scones etc. which meant that the paninins / jacket potatoes we got pretty dull. I mean it isn't easy to make a potato sing and dance on your plate but as... More

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
