Home baking to die for. Sample their treacle scone with butter and homemade raspberry jam which goes nicely with their hot chocolate topped with marshmallows. Mmmmmm! The staff of local ladies are genuinely interested in their customers which makes a change from the usual "no eye contact but I'll take your money, thank you". Please make a special trip especially... More

Whilst staying in Taynuilt on holiday, the owners of our cottage had recommended that we visit the tea shop. We didn't get chance until our last day, so we popped in to grab some goodies just before closing time to take away. The choice was limited due to the time, so we just had some scones with jam and cream... More

We visited here on a cycling holiday and found the cake to be superb - fresh, home made and delicious. They also do freshly made sandwiches that you can take away so we got those for our lunch as we were on a cycling holiday. They were delicious too. Highly recommended (and a busy wee place).

On a trip up to Oban,stopped here for lunch. So glad we did. What a varied,exciting menu!The soup was fab! Tomato soup with a twist with lemongrass and coconut and freshly made bread. However so full after ,i had no room to sample the beautiful cakes and scones. Another excuse to return. My husband had a brownie and said it... More

Was taken here for a cuppa by a friend. Pot of tea for two plus a cinnamon and fruit scone for me, treacle scone for my friend. Finished the first pot of tea and had another..so we could have another scone. Great service, great scones and great tea...can't say much more than that. Lovely little find!!

The Robin's Nest is well named in that it is a petite venue to meet in for a lunch-time or coffee-time treat and given the high standard of homemade cooking and baking, a booking is recommendable. There is a good selection of foods and drinks to choose from, which makes the idea of subsequent visits a very appealing one! The... More

My wife and I visited this cafe for coffee and cake and were delighted to find that the standard was excellent. The place itself is very clean, with a lovely warm atmosphere and attentive staff. The coffee was delicious and the cakes were home made and fantastic. I had gingerbread with butter and my wife had fresh cream meringue. It's... More

Friendly little tearoom with a great selection of cakes. Be warned, it gets packed! It's just off the main road and is road to the Bonawe Ironworks, which are also well worth a visit.
