We had coffee and cakes here on Sunday morning and couldn't believe it was the same place as we had visited in July of last year. The decoration and seating was a lot better and it is now table service. Our coffees and cakes arrived promptly, scones, chocolate cake and apple pie. All fresh and good value for money. Staff...

Was visiting with friends and we made the Frigate Café our meeting place. Great coffee, laid back crowd, good place to meet and chat with strangers. I enjoyed very much. Did not order any meals but the appetizers, soup, desserts and coffee were all good on my various stops here. Polite staff, polite patrons.

stopped for a coffee, noticed the mac and cheese on the menu so decided to try it. Well my husband and i just loved the delicious cheesy, homemade greatness of this dish. They have a winner here for sure. Lots of flavourful cheddar taste, tender cooked macaroni and a creamy sauce tops my list. for one of the best.

The Mac and Cheese here was amazing, easy to tell it was homemade and quality ingredients used. The service was good and the Staff are lovely. My Dad told the Chef personally that he enjoyed his meal which I think made the Chef's day. The portions are big and the tea is lovely too.

Cant really call the service poor because we never actually managed to get served. We were in Ullapool, for the excellent, Loopallu festival and called in here just after midday on the Saturday for a quick drink. It was far from busy and there were 2 people behind the bar so we grabbed a seat and one of us went... More
