Stopped by the Columba 1400 for a light lunch on one of our day trips, gorgeous scenery all round, lovely clean resturant, staff friendly and attentive, good selection of tray bakes, lunches to full meals and all reasonably priced too, lovely wee gift shop too. Worth the trip up for lunch.

We were staying in Staffin for several nights and were recommended to eat at Columba 1400. We ate all our evening meals at this cafe and enjoyed every one. The concept of the cafe is something we wanted to support and all the staff provided a professional and reliable service. The menu was adequate and the quality and quantity of... More

They had good food for a good price. They kind of walk the line of a Christian Establishment, but they don't focus on Jesus Christ.

Visiting the Isle of Skye and climbing up to the Old Man of Storr made us all hungry and thirsty. So we were delighted to come across the Columba 1400 Café. It was a lovely day, we were able to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the magnificent views. The staff was extremely friendly and welcoming. The carrot cake... More

My husband and I had an evening meal here recently and we were pleasantly suprised, both by the excellent value for the meals and the quality of the meals. My husband had Lamb shank with potatoes and roast vegetables which was on the daily specials board. At £10.99 we considered it was terrific value for money. The meal was beautifully... More
