Looking for a good plate of soup or great lunch then this is the place to visit. We visited the Island on Thursday 4th Dec. and stopped to have lunch in this cafe. What a delight. Everything was cooked well, very nicely presented and very good value.

This is one of the friendliest cafés we have been in for a long time. The carrot cake and coffee were excellent. We were then offered some fudge which was also excellent! If you sit at the window you have the view across to Arran set out before you. A great stop-off when cycling round the island.

Four of us had lunch today 17th Sept, we loved the welcome, the freshness of the place and best of all the food. It is such a friendly place and we chatted and laughed with the owners and other customers. We all had different things from the menu and we all agreed that the food was excellent, if I am... More

Visited twice during our 5 day stay on the Island for breakfast, great food and great service. Visited with our 7 year old son who is very fussy with his food but we had exceptional service to accommodate his needs, meaning an enjoyable meal was had by all. The smoked salmon and scrambled egg was amazing!

Still seems to a popular spot but we found it had lost the sparkle provided by the previous owners. Menu also not to our taste. On the plus side coffee as good as ever.

Great coffee and food, the staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was good. Cafe is a wee bit small but not a problem once we were seated. Definitely worth a visit.
