Wonderful tea and lunch in quiet village.

A few stops stand out in all our travels and this is one of them... the home baked pastries, the highland food, the service with a smile. The owner took our notes and called to make sure we had a ride to the self service accommodations we had.. and every day we ate there was a treat. Thank you... read more

We have been to this tea room on several occasions now and make a point of going there whenever we are in the area. The cakes here are simply delicious and the difficulty is in making a decision on what to have. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this establishment.

A trip to this part of the world is not complete without (several) stops at this wonderful eating place. The food, including the very moreish, cakes and scones are all made freshly on the premises. The soups are delicious and original. Would highly recommend but would go on a diet beforehand. The owner and staff are also very friendly and... More

Whilst waiting for the Loch Etive cruise we decided to try these lovely tea rooms. What a treat! We had the home made lentil soup, which was delicious and we also tried the dumpling loaf and date slice. Both were tasty, home baking at its best. The waitress was friendly but not fussy and we left satisfied and glad our... More

Fantastic little cafe, Very friendly and helpful ladies, home baking and lovely fresh sandwiches to eat in or take-away. We were staying nearby and called in each morning to buy our fresh sandwiches to take out for lunch later, lovely bread with your choice of fillings from the menu. The sandwiches are nicely wrapped on a paper plate too, nice... More
