Every Wednesday the cafe offers delicious home made soup and a variety of home baking. The food is always of a high standard, the people who run to cafe do a first class job and the atmosphere is always friendly and relaxing.

Lovely staff and an excellent community project. Lovely coffee, the best in the village. Scones looked amazing but we sadly didn't get to try them this visit. More places like this are needed. Wish we had been around for lunch

The cafe open only on Wednesdays and for limited time. It helps people with learning difficulties. The menu is limited and each item is delicious. We had soup and scones and everything was delicious.I think the food tastes great because of the dedication of the staff.

Great idea, supporting those with disabilities to make a living. The menu is simple but delicious. The soda bread and soup is great! Also loved the books - each one a pound.

We stopped here for a bacon roll and cup of tea. The staff were attentive and friendly. The cafe had a warm relaxed atmosphere. We bought some fruit scones to take away and they were some of the best we have had. Visit Skye on a Wednesday and start the day at The Nice Cafe and Book shop.

We visited on a Wednesday, with a local. It was excellent. The apple chutney with my cheese roll was gorgeous. The staff were very careful with our order and delivery, and we enjoyed our lunch.
