Has to be up there as one of the best cafes in The Highlands! Warm and welcoming with fantastic views over the hills. Food was top quality and very good coffee. Will be back here again, that's for sure. Highly recommend!

Well worth a visit to the Glencoe cafe before heading up the hills. A friendly welcome and a lovely relaxing atmosphere to be had here, plus a hearty Scottish breakfast.

Thanks very much for your comments Lavinia. The view from the cafe looking towards the Pap of Glencoe this morning were terrific. Believe it or not, we had blue skies and sunshine and hills looked fantastic. Thanks More

Nice simple, quiet and small place, friendly and helpful, well worth popping in when you need a bit more than a snack and not as much as a full stuff meal. Includes a little souvenir and guide book shop. plenty onsite and street parking.

The new owners are making their mark. The cafe,understatement, is lovely. Good quality bits andr bobs to buy. . Warm and cosy settees, chairs and tables. The wee tea company supplies the teas, a really good selection. Coffee good. Luxury hot chocolate very good.

Thanks very much Sheila for taking time to review our cafe. We're really pleased that you liked it. The luxury hot chocolates are very popular, especially on the cold, wet and windy days we have been having recently. Thanks again More

Glencoe town's best kept secret on The Carnoch in the middle of the village. Outstanding food in generous serves accompanied by espresso, tea, and hot chocolate crafted with care. This cafe beats the big city counterparts hands down! A warm Highland welcome to a cosy cafe awaits every traveller in search of sustenance.

I popped in for lunch yesterday when doing some photography in the area. This is nice little café in the village with parking at the rear. The staff were very pleasant & took the time to chat with their customers, some of which seem to be regulars. I had the leek & potato soup along with a Coronation Chicken Sandwich... More

We visited Glencoe Cafe after walking and were given a warm welcome by owners Deirdre and Alan. The tomato soup was one of the best I've ever tasted......cakes to die for and very reasonable prices. We will recommend and will definitely be back!

Small, friendly and delicious morning tea this morning at this little cafe in picturesque Glencoe. Definitely try the fruit and nut slice if scones are not your thing.
