Small cafe in Glencoe with friendly staff. The vegetable soup with cheese scones is delicious. There is a wide range of home baked cakes, it's good quality but not cheap, worth a visit.

Sincerely one of the best soup/sandwich combo we've ever had! Staff here is super friendly. Service is quick. Have a quick stop here even just for a coffee you really won't regret it!

We stopped in for a quick cup of coffee while heading out for a long day. The coffee was good, and the staff were really friendly and made us feel very welcome. Worth stopping in if you're in town.

Visited with my Parents who are regulars there: Friendly staff and delicious homemade soup and Home Baking. A busy café obviously popular with locals and tourists. We will definitely return in the future. Plenty tables at window to enjoy the birds feeding on nuts etc.

We stopped here for lunch in the garden. The sun was shining , the service was excellent, the loos lovely and clean. The menu was extensive we were spoilt for choice. We had panini washed down with excellent River Levens blond beer. A hidden gem. 🍺.

Had a satisfying lunch here after a wet and cool drive through the beautiful highlands. Ordered the speciality, soup with a savoury scone. The soup was superb. Hot and very tasty. The homemade scone was wonderful. Service was efficient and mildly warm. Met my needs precisely.

Had breakfast and lunch with my family here on two different occasions. Food is great and we enjoyed both out meals. It was worth traveling form Fort William to this excellent cafe with a homely feel.

We visited on another rainy day, but our cakes and drinks were awesome - the gluten free flapjack was probably the best I've tasted, and it was my friends order! - my scone & jam & lovely tea selection was great also. Slightly small place & almost hidden away ... but worth finding. ... a very good place to stop.
