“Dream setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Visited on the 1st March, but it felt like the middle of summer (without midges!) There was not a cloud, no wind, - the sky clear blue, and the water like a mill pond. Magical setting. We sat on the outside terrace, basking in the sun, and could not have enjoyed the experience any better. Pleasant lady serving pleasant food. A local sat beside us eve pointed out a seal beside on of the yachts.

“Truly a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013 via mobile

We visited the cafe on Saturday 16th February, the first day of re-opening,after the cafe had undergone a redecoration.
The cafe was a delight, with outdoor seating looking out over the bay,even better was the fact it is partly covered,allowing for dog friendly visiting without getting wet.
The menu was imaginative, with a twist to every day dishes,our meal was freshly prepared and well presented.We sampled the homemade cakes, which were the envy of my wife,who also bakes.
I am sure in the main season there would be a constant flow of customers with many returning again and again,as we visited early season we were spoilt with attention from the staff who were pleased to be back open, and doing what they enjoy.
Nigel,Lynne & Eddie dog.

“Tayvallich Coffee shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

An excellent stopover for refreshments! The scones were fresh and warm, the coffee was really good and the scenery second to none, especially sat on the deck overlooking the harbour. Would recommend highly!

“great location and nice staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

stopped for cofee and cakes and sat outside on a sunny autumn day .fantastic location to admire sea views and wider scenery.The staff were very friendly and the only down side was the small cappucino being just too small so better order the large ,would go back to try a meal as location is brilliant right next to seashore in this sheltered bay

“Great cafe, fantastic outdoor seating area. Friendly staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

This cafe has a superb outdoor area looking over the bay at Tayvallich. Its a great place to sit and watch the boats.
We went several times and had coffee, cakes, snacks and a breakfast. All were very good.
The cafe is behind the shop, so might be difficult to find if you dont know the area.
Well worth a visit on a sunny day.
