The cafe open only on Wednesdays and for limited time. It helps people with learning difficulties. The menu is limited and each item is delicious. We had soup and scones and everything was delicious.I think the food tastes great because of the dedication of the staff.

Great idea, supporting those with disabilities to make a living. The menu is simple but delicious. The soda bread and soup is great! Also loved the books - each one a pound.

We stopped here for a bacon roll and cup of tea. The staff were attentive and friendly. The cafe had a warm relaxed atmosphere. We bought some fruit scones to take away and they were some of the best we have had. Visit Skye on a Wednesday and start the day at The Nice Cafe and Book shop.

We visited on a Wednesday, with a local. It was excellent. The apple chutney with my cheese roll was gorgeous. The staff were very careful with our order and delivery, and we enjoyed our lunch.
