We stopped here having seen the sign indicating food BUT, at 11 o'clock were unable to raise anyone despite calling out. There were dirty plates,cups and saucers still on the tables which is sufficient to dissuade potential customers.

As other reviewers have said, this is a wonderfully warm, relaxing and welcoming coffee stop. The owner is delightful and friendly and we loved chatting to her and her mum when we dropped in. Scrummy home made cakes and a wonderful home cooked, simple evening meal offer. We had booked for this but had to cancel as we needed to... More

A cozy, converted school room with comfy sofas to sink into, rustic furniture and plenty of books and games. What more could you want? How about delicious home cooked food made to order and a friendly owner. We had a pot of tea, baked potatoes, mince and sticky toffee pudding to die for. Look for the "Food 1 Mile" sign... More

Like others, we noticed the 'food in one mile' sign just as we were getting peckish on our way to Uighur sands. We popped in and enjoyed the homely atmosphere of the old school room. The soup was tasty and the highland beef casserole delicious..so I was told..I had a baked potato. The home baking finished the meal off well.

We found "food in 1 mile" sign as we drive along the road leading to Uig Bay. There aren't a lot of places to eat on Lewis outside of Stornoway, so we didn't expect much. Well, we were so wrong about this place. The CAFE features a very simple menu, but that does not matter as the food is very... More

We had a wonderful friendly welcome and the room (old school room) is really atmospheric. The food is simple, home cooked with good quality ingredients. It does not pretend to be gourmet but is honest tasty food. The owner was really helpful in advising us where to go for our final day on Lewis.

We received a friendly welcome and its a cosy place but was let down by food which seemed over priced with not much choice, would only pop in again for drinks.

I visited the coffee shop after a cycle from Shawbost and had some great cake to revive my tired legs. My wife and I have been here several times and the food is always home made, tasty and great value. Everyone, staff and customers, were really friendly and interested in our visit to Lewis. My advice is don't pass the... More

There is little in the way of eateries in this part of the Outer Hebrides, so finding this little gem so far off the beaten track was very welcomed. Loch Croistean is an old school house converted to provide a small number of dining tables whilst still retaining much of the original feel of the place with local art work... More
