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.

Visited here last week whilst having a day out to the west coast with friends. Agree with other reviewers, premises are a bit 'Tired' but the staff were very friendly and the coffee and scones were excellent. Would be quite happy to visit again, however, I'm not sure I would have a full meal there. But highly recommended for Coffee... More

Called here for coffee and cake on a fantastic sunny day in July. Nice selection of fresh scones and cakes. Our selection of cake and scones served straight away at the counter but the coffees arrived a good while after. We waited for the drinks to arrive before eating our food, but could have finished them before the drinks arrived.... More

My husband & myself had a Saturday lunch here. Very friendly waiter from Majorca! We can highly recommend the smoked salmon & chive quiche which comes with a beautiful homemade white roll, coleslaw & salad. My husband had the nachos with guacamole, sour cream & salsa...delicious! We followed this with two bits of cake & coffee/tea. My mocha wasn't the... More

Nice atmosphere. Ate there 2 nights because it was so good. The burger wasn't homemade which was a bit disappointing but generally the portions were good as was the service.
