We are a small coffee shop right on the shores of tayvallich bay. We serve freshly cooked breakfast until 11.30 am and start serving lunches from 12pm and serve right through until 4pm. We serve coffees, teas, warm scones and tasty homebaked treats from 9 -5 (10 - 5 on Sundays) We have plenty outside seating on our patio where you can sit watching the boats and wildlife even catching sight of an osprey fishing every now and then! We have showers available for anyone to use. Our village store at the front sells everything from papers, local butcher meat and beer to cycle repair kits.
