Just what you need after visiting Tarbert Ness. Great coffee, sandwiches, soups and cakes. What more do you need?

Lovely wee cafe. Friendly staff, good food, very reasonably priced. Water jugs were put on tables without asking. The food was very tasty. I recommend the paninis. Lovely location and decor. Some nice giftware on offer to buy at very reasonable prices too.

If you’re looking for all homemade produce then this is the place. The Cullen skunk soup is to die for and all served with either oatcakes or homemade bread. The white chocolate and blueberry scones were delicious and unusual. Staff friendly, food served super quick...More

Dropped for lunch, immediately charmed by the friendly welcome. We both had Cullen skink soup - totally wonderful. Finished with drinks, home made scone and cake, all fantastic. Definitely worth a visit, then take a stroll along the beautiful beach to walk it off afterwards.

Apologies for my late reply. I'm afraid we don't allow dogs(other than guide dogs) inside the cafe, but we do have seats outside where you and your dogs are very welcome to sit. Or you can leave them tied up outside within... More
