Restaurant details
Description: The Gallery Cafe is situated above North West Outdoors on West Argyle Street, Ullapool in the Scottish Highlands. We are open from 9am till 4pm, but during the winter months the kitchen may sometimes close at 3pm to allow us to bake our yummy cakes and scones! We will still be serving teas, coffees, cakes and soup (if there's any left) untill 4pm! Why not come in for a breakfast, soup or just some tea and cake. We offer a range of delicious lunches including oven baked potatoes and tasty panini's! Our cakes are all homemade as is our soup.We are child friendly, there are 2 high chairs and changing facilities, we also have some toys to keep the wee ones occupied whilst the grown-ups enjoy their lunch.We also have a good selection of landscape photographs in our gallery section.

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

We used to love visiting here on previous trips to Ullapool but after this visit we will not be back. We had 2 cappuccino's and 1 small chocolate brownie and got a little change back from £8 The cups were small compared what they used to be and coffee was poorer and not a great cappuccino, but the small brownie...

Good coffee, nice artwork, upstairs from outdoors outfitters, great wifi access. I spent a couple hours there catching up on correspondence and dealing with a bank issue.

This my third return to this cafe over the past years when travelling up the west coast. I agree with a recent review on the care slipping. The cafe is a large area above an outdoor shop with easy parking on the street area outside. Some nice views out of the windows and local photography in the gallery area to... More

A nice cafe in Ullapool that is set in interesting surroundings, as the space doubles up as a photography gallery. In fact this is a must to visit just for that purpose. The cafe serves a variety of foods, including delicious cheese scones (which I find are pretty hard to come by). Unfortunately, we didn't find the coffee up to... More

Had the full Scottish breakfast and it was very tasty and good quality ingredients! The portion was generous and more of a bloke-sized portion! Well priced for quality food and a very nice place to sit with views of the town from the window seats and lovely photographs of the Highlands inside! Worth more than one visit!

Value was the first thing that comes to mind when I think of this place. I mean, a full breakfast was only a fiver (or something like that!), And it wasn't the usual very average breakfast either. It was good food and good meat. On top of all that, the photography on display is, for the most part, brilliant. As... More

Our usual coffee haunt in Ullapool was not operational to the public on our trip, as a wedding was taking place there on that day, so we wandered along Argyle Street and went into the 'Mountain Cafe' / 'The Gallery Cafe' or whatever name it is going under this week. It's the building with the model climber climbing up (or... More

On a two week trip around Scotland, this was by far the best breakfast we had in a cafe or pub. When we saw the price, we thought it might be on the small side, but it was the biggest one we had eaten the whole holiday! Haggis AND black pudding, bacon cooked just right, and toast on a separate... More
