We had a bacon burger each which was so tasty! Also I accidentally spilled my hot chocolate EVERYWHERE which I was rather embarrassed about :S luckily they were very good, came to clean up straight away (and gave us another table so they could clean up), and then they gave me another one for free without me having to ask!...

Just passing and had a latte and cake. The café was busy with callers who were local plus lots of passing tourists, especially those who were on food passing through. Well appointed with choice of tables, easy chairs, bar stool type chairs. A big notice on the counter said "Table Service" so I sat down. I had to wait nearly... More

Thank you very much for your review. The tomato and basil soup is probably the most popular choice with our cheese scone combo. We're glad you enjoyed it. More

I visited with my Dad after doing an archery session at a gold course down the road (great fun, by the way!). We had a light lunch of soup and sandwiches along with a couple of hot drinks. The staff were friendly and efficient and the food was really tasty. If you can get a seat by the window there... More

We stopped in for afternoon tea and something light to eat after a hike. It was exactly what we desired. We had savory scones, and they were delicious. We drank our tea, ate our scones, and rested our feet. Glencoe Cafe offered exactly the experience we desired.

Had breakfast here one day, place was clean, well maintained with friendly and attentive staff. Food tasted especially good because we were starving! I'd eat there again.

Stopped off for a quick breakfast on Sunday after a weekend camping in Kinlochleven. Service was excellent and staff were so friendly. We sat outside in the sun which was great as allowed us to take the dog in with us and enjoy our breakfast with a view of the surrounding areas and hills of Glencoe. Very enjoyable and recommended
