Great location on loch side, nice food, good service. Clean and bright interior, good cup of tea. Has a licence so had a nice glass of wine and cool beer with our lunch. Really lovely.

We ate our dessert in the Frigate and enjoyed it so much, we came back the next day for dessert too. It was a bit chilly inside with the front door open, but we like the feel and atmosphere of the place. We felt quite at home.

Popped in for a morning coffee and the staff couldn't do enough. It was such a nice atmosphere, we ordered breakfast which was good value and very tasty. Stop in and enjoy the friendly atmosphere!

Came through Ullapool around nine p.m from a long day out while on holiday, we were all very hungry parked up and went in to see if they had a table for 4.

This is a very busy cafe/bistro on the main street in Ullapool. The location is superb, as you can sit and watch the harbour and boats from any of the windows. There is a wide variety of food and drink on offer, and the service was friendly. We enjoyed visiting here on a number of occasions during our stay.

Stopped here for a coffee and cake whilst walking in Ullapool. The coffee was lovely and the scones were delicious served with butter and a pot of jam. We sat outside looking down the loch in the sun. The staff were friendly and served us quickly

Very nice place to relax with a cuppa, choose from a table and chairs or a sofa and coffee table. Nice views if you can get a window seat. Nice selection of cakes etc. Popped in here twice whilst we where in Ullapool.

I popped in here for a quick breakfast and a coffee before a long drive South. The decor and feel of the place is nice. I had a cappuccino and eggs Benedict. The cappuccino was nice but rather small for the price, no free refills that I could see or was offered. The eggs Benedict was almost what I expected... More

The soup could be a meal in itself. Excellent service in a very quiet upstairs with a lovely view over Loch Broom. We will definitely return to The Frigate next time we're in Ullapool.

Open early for coffee, pastries, enormous scones, breakfast and food all day. Wonderful service and lots of room with views over the loch. HOmemade goodies are mouthwatering especially the scones and pastries. Coffee also very good. Lovely young staff.
