We visited this quirky cafe when staying on the nearby campsite and liked it immediately. It was pouring with rain and inside was a wonderful wood burning stove which warmed and dried us quickly. The waitress was friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed the food very much. It wasn’t long before we were the only customers left and we could... More

This is such a gem of a place I can't believe I've not come across it before. It's tucked away and yet clearly has a bit of a reputation because people were being turned away at peak lunch time. Popular for tourist trippers whether by foot, bike or car. And deservedly so. Plenty of options for vegetarians (like me), and... More

This deserves to be listed in Scotland the best. Original menu options. Freshly cooked. Fabulous food. Friendly staff. Cosy restaurant with log burning stove displaying Local crafts. Definitely Worth making a detour to dine here.

Stayed in Kinlochewe on a walking holiday. Called in for brekkie on 2 occasions, both times the food was excellent. It is slightly expensive , but given the location I can well understand. My only gripe was the one slice of toast. Two would have made it perfect.

I have never posted negative review but visit of this cafe has unfortunatelly somehow stuck in my thoughts. Hope these will disappear with opening my experience up. Visited this cafe a month ago when passing Kinlochewe on my bike. This place looked lovely from the outside and also inside was very cosy. I was positively tuned to a pleasant experience... More

This is a lovely place to stop off or to make a special journey for. Fresh food with lots of healthy choices. Only regret is that it isn't open for evening meals or we would definitely be visiting more often! Nice vintage vibe.

On our way cross country from Applecross we 'discovered' the whistle stop cafe. My Daughter and I had lunch and the food was superb (not a word I use lightly) service was good, quality excellent and pleasant surroundings, not the cheapest but quality counts.

We are regularly up in Kinlochewe and never eat anywhere else! Great service, great food at a reasonable price and a lovely, friendly atmosphere. We'll be back for more at Easter.

Had breakfast here on the way from torridon. Really nice little place, breakfast itself was very good quality, very friendly place and perfect for a stop off. The wood burner was good too!
