The café was a nice little surprise at Eilean Donan Castle. They offered a little bit of everything. You could grab something to take away or sit down and eat.

Stopped off last week for lunch. Good selection of soup, sandwiches, paninis, baked potatoes, hot food and cakes. Very busy but service was pretty quick. Would definitely recommend.

Often with this type of venue the captive clientele are in for a disappointment but here the staff and catering put on a good show. There was no reluctance in making an effort and the effort made for an enjoyable meal superior to Dunvegan Castle

The coffee shop offers a good place to relax after touring the castle. There is a good range of food and drink available and the pricing is reasonable. Take time to look up,the utilisation of space is very good.

Nice shop and nicer coffee. A good cafe with friendly staff. You would want to see friendly people after driving hundreds of miles into the mountain roads.

A really great find. Good parking and easy access to coffee shop. A lovely selection of cakes and pastries along with some tasty-looking cooked meals. Good prices considering this is at a major tourist attraction in the area. plenty of seating - even dedicated tables for disabled visitors. Would recommend the scones. Friendly and helpful staff.
