Visited this cafe 3 times. Once for breakfast and twice for dinner. Food was very good on all occasions. Always fresh and hot. Always busy, and obviously used by the locals, which I guess is a good sign! The only downside, with one exception is that it would be nice if staff sometimes cracked a smile!

Excellent service from friendly staff. Varied menu. Enjoyed a special lunch of scallops and black pudding on a bed of salad with a sweet chilli dressing. Delicious. Would highly recommend.

This place is a must on any visit to Tarbert. It is a regular hang-out for an entertaining gang of regulars (who sit on the left) and a warm welcome for the occasional visitors and holiday makers (who sit on the right). Fast, friendly service, excellent bacon butties, full breakfasts, proper coffee of all descriptions, and very reasonable prices for... More

Another 15 minutes wait for our order to come and when it finally did the chips was soggy and cold. It was very busy there and they were only 2 staff members... More

I called in for a coffee and was delighted with my visit. Excellent cappuccino plus a delicious chocolate slice for around £3 in total. I sat at a table outside in the sunshine and watched Tarbert go by. Waiting staff friendly and helpful. I had nearly walked past, thinking it was a greasy spoon/fish'n'chips place - so glad I didn't!

Ate breakfast here and had an ice cream later the same day. Breakfast was simple but good value at £5. All the ingredients were good quality and they did me fried bread instead of toast at my request. Ambience is definitely cafe with friendly locals enhancing the experience. Ice cream is home made vanilla and very good. It may be... More

Popped in for lunch. Second visit. So much choice on the menu. They do breakfast, lunch and dinner. Very friendly staff. Next time I'm in the area will pop in. Highly recommended.
