Reliable restaurant with food prepared on the premises

It's always a good sign when a restaurant or café is well patronised by locals, and that's the case with the Gallery Café.

Had lunch in this cafe. Pannini was nice and caramel shortcake was lovely but the staff were very unfriendly. The waitress dropped my pannini in my lap but just said a very brief "sorry" and walked off. No offer of a napkin to clean the tuna off my jumper. I think the staff could do with a bit of training...

As the name suggests, the Gallery café is a joy for art lovers and one can see really beautiful photos of the local area displayed around the walls. Coffee here is good and there is a reasonable choice of good cakes and snacks to accompany. Prices are fair and service, in our opinion, excellent.

Stopped for coffee and cake which was OK but not as good as on previous visits. The café area is a nice place to chill out with lovely photos of the surrounding area displayed around you.

Popped in twice during my week in Ullapool. Service is very good - just make sure you specify exactly how you want your food & drink. I like my latte very hot and that's what I got. There are other places for coffee nearby but I returned here to look at the photos again. It is the Gallery Café after... More

We spent nearly thirty pounds on sandwhich was and a full breakfast. The staff serving were not very welcoming and quite rude! When bringing the food over she slapped it down in front of whoever, irregardless of us saying what we had ordered. Then preceded to GLARE at me whilst we are our food??!?!?!? I would not bother going again!!!

Strange reviews recently made us wary of returning here. We have been regulars every November for over 10 years. Usual great value in the shop downstairs and when we went up to the cafe it was still as wonderful as ever. Warm, clean and with great food. The coffee came in large mugs and was good quality. The bacon roll... More
