... so it seems from the reviews that there is something very strange happening with the coffees ... some good days and some bad days .... this was a bad day ... looked like a great latte but tasted of really nothing ... should have said something I guess but already cold and wet and a bit miserable and didn't...

Called in for lunch when we arrived back in Oban after 3 day tramp. Coffee was fantastic and meal was tasty and plenty fresh local produce.

We only tried the carrot cake as we were determined to try all the fish meals available to us in two days. However the crepes looked delicious and our Carrot cake was a generous size which we enjoyed with lashings of cream. Friendly Barista and owner who made us very welcome.

Dropped by to pick up a slice of delicious carrot cake. Apparently the coffee was not so great. Pity

Had a cappuccino. When I picked the mug (take away) up it felt very light. Had 50% froth. Asked for that to be fixed and he was a bit indignant about it saying that's how cappuccino is meant to be and if I didn't want froth I should have asked for flat white. Well, I've had a lot of cappuccinos... More

Not a very busy place even at the busiest time if the year. Had breakfast there - food was OK but over priced for what was delivered. Very limited menu. No ambience or character and the pub across the road was probably a better option.

While the food was great -- ham and cheese croissants and omelette -- the best part was our interesting conversation with the owner, a US ex-pat who has been on Stewart Island for many years.

We enjoyed a very pleasant lunch at the Creperie. The menu is limited, and the place is quite small, but service is good and the food is interesting and very tasty. Be advised that at the moment they are not taking credit cards--you'll need cash.

Thank Judy P
