A special Thank you to Stephen and the girls. Stephen in particular couldn't do enough for us. A wonderful warm welcome, great service, and good coffee. We all loved this place and will visit again. A superb example of great Scottish hospitality.

Friendly. Owner very happy and enthusiastic. Lunch for four with drinks £22.50. Try the hot chocolate. The café. Is pretty small and very popular but turn over is quick. Top marks.

Arriving in Tarbert from North Uist we stumbled across this wee gem of a tea shop. Lovely cheerful, helpful staff and and absolutely delicious home baking. Well worth a visit.

As well as excellent coffee and cakes, I'd like to make special mention that both my wife and I, on the same day but at different times, were not allowed to pay for our orders as we both had on Escort Badges.No amount of persuasion could get him to take payment, and I want to say how much it was...

This is a tea room that does fast food as well, and to be fair the burgers we ate were simplistic, but tasty. However, look out for the grade A plonker of a Glaswegian Head Waiter. Make the mistake of actually sitting inside the cafe (as opposed to on the benches outside), and be prepared to be bombarded with this... More

Very cheery welcome. Good knowledge of ingredients. My daughter had a gluten free burger & chips. Followed by a delicious Gluten & Dairy Free orange & lime cake. Highly Recommended.

This little place looks unassuming from the outside but what a welcome from Stephen and his staff. We popped in for a coffe whilst waiting for our ferry to Skye and witnessed one of the nicest, kindest acts imaginable. There were a group of 3 Americans and one had gone to the bank to exchange dollars for Sterling. The bank... More

We had panini and chips, plus coffees. The coffees were the best we had in our three weeks in Scotland. I bought a caramel shortbread to take away and that was the best I have had in a long while. The service was quick and very friendly and the owner made my husband a special coffee because they are both... More
