We stopped in for some soup and a scone. They were both very tasty! We sat outside and it was quite pleasant.

Very busy, as you'd expect in August, but reasonable service. Good pot of tea, with timer, and pleasant soup of the day. Sandwich was ok too. A bit pricey for what it was, but all perfectly acceptable.

We stopped at the cafe while exploring the village. We loved the hanging baskets and the coziness, as well as the drinks! Alan, the owner, was incredibly kind and helpful in giving us advice on local buses and timetables (he even called the information office at Fort William to get information for us!). A lovely place to stop at if... More

Nice soup and good cappuccino and a large piece of chocolate cake. A gift shop was nice, and drawings and paintings upstairs wonderful! Friendly and quick service. :)

Very good service and a good menu range. This cafe is a little small and so was very busy and cramped. The food was a little expensive which is to be expected in a tourist place. However the food was also high quality and you got what you paid for.

Stopped here for a quick drink. Cute and homely cafe. Very popular and so we had to sit outside but that was fine as there are good picnic tables. Good range of coffee and teas available.

Thanks very much for your superb review. We have been very busy and we are glad that the weather permitted you to sit outside. The sun has been hiding from us a bit recently. More
