Speedy service and freshly prepared

If you are hungry and are not worried about finesse, then go for it. Always more than we can eat and the coffee is equally as good. Sensibly priced.

Good large pot of tea. We weren't hurried. Many locals visit the place. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. Almost a community hub.

Had prawns and soup with a mint hot chocolate. Can't fault the cafe, quick, polite service with great food on offer. Great portion size of soup and fairly priced.

Always seems to be busy with locals, surely a good sign. Had brunch at most recent visit. Was fine, no complaints. Good choice. Not fancy, a little old-fashioned (not a criticism) but you won't go wrong here. And a great setting, right across from the bay.

Cafe visited, had lunch and later coffee. It was a lovely visit and good food, real mix of people in the cafe, locals, tourists, builders, families, cyclists but all welcomed with a cheery smile

Stopped in here again on another visit to Tarbert. Good food, good portion sizes, efficient service and good value especially after having felt ripped off in both Inverary and Lochgilphead earlier in the week. Only criticism is that one of the hard working Saturday waitresses needs to cheer up a bit as she never managed to smile at anyone during... More
