Great little cafe with helpful staff

My two daughters and I visited this café after a walk and found it very pleasant with a good range of snacks and drinks. My youngest wanted a hot chocolate and they were very helpful, providing a smaller than usual 'cup' for her but still making it up like one of the big ones (cream etc). The... read more

Just stopped off in Glencoe for lunch on the way to Fort William, and found this little treat. The food, the cake, the coffee, all worthy of 5 stars for quality. And it's reasonably priced too. Definitely worth a stop for a quick lunch, but save room for homemade cakes!

My Wife and I stopped by here for a quick bite to eat between walks. The café itself is small and cosy. The sandwich I had was very overpriced considering it was just bog standard ham and cheese on supermarket bread, pretty certain the ham was supermarket also,which is perfectly fine if you aren't charged a premium for it. We... More

We ordered the smoked salmon salad and their homemade soup. Our son ordered the carrot cake. Each one of them were very good and we could tell it was all made with fresh ingredients. Thank you for a great resting spot to refuel our bodies. I would recommend this place without hesitation.

Small, charming, friendly, the Glencoe Cafe is a great place to pop in for Scottish Breakfast (and to be squeamish, try your black pudding, it is yummy).

Took refuge on a wet afternoon - warm welcome with friendly staff. Wholesome home cooked food - excellent coffee - worth a visit.

Excellent service, good food, if a little pricey. The vegetable soup was good and thick but could be improved if served with some nice crusty bread instead of a small, white roll. Coffee and cakes are very nice although the cakes are expensive.
