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!

In an old corrugated shed, this great little place was a highlight of our trip! From the warm and friendly welcome to the selection of food, we enjoyed visiting this cafe after walking around Beinn Eighe. The food range was great - the chicken and bacon club is highly recommended! - and the staff were quick and attentive. A great... More

TBH there's not much choice in Kinlochewe but this unassuming and from the outside weird building is a gem of a stop.

Make time to stop here and enjoy the... More

We were told about this lovely little cafe by a B & B owner in Badachro. It's just off the A832. On walking in we were welcomed by a lovely room with a log burner. The staff were friendly, lovely coffee. Great selection of cakes too

Stopped here for a quick lunch during our progress around the NC500. Unfortunately the place was busy, service was desperately slow and the food mediocre (eg: two soups: one was just warm and the other was tepid). The staff were polite, but not sparkling, perhaps at the end of a busy service. We skipped dessert or coffee, having spent far... More

Lovely place for huge scones with scrummy jam and delicious coffee after a very wet walk. Don't drive past this lovely cafe.

We had 2 fantastic breakfasts on a wet and cold morning, sausages black pudding, fried egg, bacon toast and coffee and scrambled egg and salmon. Beautifully cooked and presented. Interesting building with art and crafts and a real community feeling. A log stove to sit beside and warm up whilst waiting -not long for our grub!

Stopped in for tea and cake after a walk in the National Nature Reserve. Really welcoming staff and good sized cake portions. The sticky toffee pudding is delicious!
