Food was OK - just had cake and coffee. The coffee came in a very small cup for the price paid and was very strong. The male member of staff on duty was rather surly. On the plus side, there was plenty of parking space,

This cafe style restaurant is centrally located in the village of Staffin. The food was good, the service was friendly and fast. The wifi connection was reliable and fast. We had a table near the window and had a nice view of the area, as it is more elevated than the rest of the village. I would recommend it, especially... More

This place was recommended to us, popped in for coffee and cakes and was pleasantly surprised. Great interior decor, service excellent. Don't be put off by the giant religious cross on the outside of the building (as seen from the road) and there are no religious references inside the building or the cafe. Very clean, All food and drinks very... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant when we were doing the An Corran and Staffin beach walk, and what a find it was! The restaurant has spectacular views out across the Quiraing and over and above the views it serves really good quality food that represents excellent value for money. When we went in, it was busy with a coach party... More

Staffin is a small village, you don't really have many choices. The decor of the restaurant is very "youthostels style", but the plate is good as well as the dessert and the view to the Quiraing by the windows is beautiful. Then you can't make a mistake with such a reasonable price !

Did not even know this place existed. We found this place after nearly driving past it, glad to say it was really worthwhile stopping. Staff were very helpful and efficient. The food was very good and at reasonable cost. Recommended if travelling in the Staffin area of Skye.

after visiting the spectacular mountains in north skye i sheltered from the wind and rain in this cafe which is open to the public despite being part of a larger building. its very modern but the food is simple hearty fare, very good and excellent value. get a table next to the window for great views.

The food was delicious and the view spectacular not to mention the very reasonable prices. We ordered two of the specials and a small pizza for our 4 year old and despite the fact that there was a whole bus load of young people in the cafe when we arrived we were served quickly and the food was delicious. There... More
