We walked into this cafe and they had us with the freshly made scones served with local strawberries and cream. Oh my days, those scones were scrumptious. It was a busy morning for the staff but they scurried about in a friendly and efficient manner, doing what they did with love and perfection.We shared our table with a couple of... More

This was a lovely find on our way up to Gairloch.. We stopped for an afternoon snack on the way up then for breakfast before the long trip home. It was very busy but worth the stop..

Was a cosy welcoming little cafe. Food was freshly prepared. Very clean. Service with a smile. Would love to return in the winter when the log burners fired up. I bet its even better.

Nice & busy little cafe. Perfect for a hot drink, sugar rush & comfort break after Beinn Eighe. Scones were fresh, as was the tea (commonly leaves on the west coast). Don't be surprised to share a table, but that adds to the experience. Very busy and was short changed, but they apologised for the mistake.

On the drive from Applecross to Gairloch there aren't many places to stop. We'd seen this place before, but always thought it a little odd - it's a hut, set back a little and not very obvious as a great place to stop. But don't be misled. It's a grand little place and is run by people who care about... More

Found this little gem on the way across to Atterdale Gardens. Looks like a cared for tin hut at the start of many miles of single track road. Very friendly atmosphere, superb coffee and a good place to chat with new acquaintances. Toilets clean and well decorated. Would love to go back for a meal next time.

Stopped for a light lunch on our way from Torridon to Inverness. The quality of the food was good and the staff were attentive and efficient. I tend to agree with some of the other reviews that the prices are on the high side but overall would recommend as a lunch stop. The menu for evening meals looked good so... More
