Nice stop off for hot drink and snack . Lovely place for a break from the windy Isle, nice selection of cakes, scones, coffees and teas. Lovely tables in the window for the view

We ate at this restaurant whilst staying at the nearby "Benview". Although we booked a table we probably didn't need to as the place is large and was not very busy. Staffin is a quite place! We had a good table in the window and both the food and service were good.

We arrived in Staffin late and we're pleased to get a hot dinner at this cafe. Food was fine and brought quickly.

Stopped here for a coffee and scone with jam and cream and sat at a table by the large bay window. Excellent service and enjoyed my coffee and scone and the stunning view of the Quiraing. Then noticed the lunches being served. Next time I am in the area I will be having lunch here. Very good highly recommended.

Great food, excellent service, stunning views - what more could you want? Good range of hot foods and sandwiches, served promptly with generous garnishes. Everywhere clean. Take time to pop up to the gallery above the restaurant: lots about the history of the site, and also interesting old photo's and history from Skye. Loved this place, look forward to returning.

Having travelled around the Trotternish peninsula from Dunvegan, this was a real off season oasis - everywhere else en route was closed! We found a warm welcome, interesting menu and nice interior, and the quality of food was great; the Cullen skink and home made bread (with treacle and fennel) were particular highlights.

Smashin cafe\restaurant with table service and lovely views over Staffin. We had Teas, cakes and soups which were all tasty and very reasonably priced. Great wee place to stop off and have a look around and find out what's on locally. There's a noticeboard with leaflets and a reception with usual Skye nik naks for sale...toilets were spotless too.

Very friendly staff. We had a very nice meal here. There were not many places to choose from in this area in October. We would recommend.

We dropped in here for a bite to eat after hiking. It was clean, great food and cheap. Total win. The staff was friendly and they have wifi if you need it. Great little stopping point if you are cruising around Skye

Well worth a stop for a coffee and a snack. The food was well presented and the premises were very clean, modern and bright. Profits at the cafe are fed back into the unit which also works with people of the community
