This is a little gem that sells a range of lovely food products and is also a hive of local activity and good food. Quite trendy and comfortable.

This little café and deli shop will not disappoint. Really friendly staff, giving great service. Good food in bright, clean surroundings. The shop sells lots of goodies to take away! Will definitely call again when next on the Islands.

From the minute we first stepped into the Deli in May 2013, we have enjoyed every single visit. Warm welcome from the friendly, helpful staff. Great quality food and always looking at ways to improve and develop their choices. Has to be the best coffee on the islands and the Mocha is amazing. The selection in the Deli fridge is... More

I loved the friendly service, my cake and coffee. Afterwards I purchased cheeses from the cheese counter, a fabulous pie for my dinner and various snacks and sauces that I've not seen anywhere else without a hefty price tag.

Nice to see that Benbecula has a deli / café and good what has been achieved so far. However, for some honest feedback on our visit a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday at 2pm. No soup of the day left - would have expected soup to be available all day. Surely can keep some in a fridge /... More

This is a wee gem. It is spotlessly clean, very bright and airy. With freshly cooked food, an interesting menu which you wouldn't expect on a remote island, and beautiful home baking. Staff are very friendly and welcoming.

The menu isn't typical of the area - we were not expecting Mediterranean deli items, charcuterie and cheeses. Had a very nice lunch break here.

The Island deli is an amazing coffee shop with other stuff you can buy. We also had lunch from here and made a brilliant spread for us that put a smile on all my colleagues faces. There was nothing to complain about and the coffee was very nice. This is a hidden secret that everyone should know about and visit.... More

Initially visited to buy some cheeses that were not processed and vacuum packed. We had read these were available but had given up on finding the cafe when we suddenly came across a sign, we did find it well sign posted from the main road later. There were plenty of other mouth watering goodies also on sale. It looked so... More
