“Best bacon rolls ever !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a gem. All meals freshly made. Bacon rolls amazing! We all had different things and all thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Great cuppa and wonderfully tasty soup. Salads excellent.
Many thanks to the young waiters.

“Very tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Had read about the cafe on tripadvisor so decided to give it a try and was not disappointed. My husband and I both had the smoked mackerel salad. The fish was warm and juicy, best I've tasted! The salad was lovely fresh and crisp. Made up of numerous different local leaves, tomatoes and red onion. This was served with a small pot of horseradish sauce and warm baguettes.
Staff were very friendly and chatty.

“Lovely lunch spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

There are few places to eat out in this stunning part of the world and we needed somewhere friendly to celebrate AS results. I had read other good reviews so off we went. As we arrived at 2.45 ish a party of lunching ladies was just leaving and we had the place to ourselves. The young staff were clearing the ladies' table and suggested we sit there (we were 7) and take advantange of the view. The view included dozens of sparrows, and a few sheep, on bird feeders on the fence outside the window and then out to the Summer Isles.
We enjoyed freshly cooked food including smoked salmon pate with oatcakes & salad, paninis, burgers (served without salad etc), sausages with colcannon (huge portion) and lots of chips with ketchup then visited the cake table and finished off with cream scones and courgette and orange cake.
Great food, freshly prepared (be ready to wait if ordering more than coffee and cake), friendly service - highly recommended
Just a note on payment - cash or cheque only!

“very tasty salad and crab cakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

very friendly local eatery with simple menu but beautifully presented and thoughtful dishes.

I did not expect the quality and quantity of crabcakes and salad for £8 - really impressive
