Had lunch here passing though Tarbert and also had breakfast waiting for the ferry. A very nice little café run by great people (Steve especially is a character). Great coffee, great food, nice to sit outside in good weather and people watch. Cannot recommend enough.

Took shelter in this coffee shop in wild weather on a visit to Tarbert. Both the coffee & the sandwich were really good & the staff were very friendly. The cakes looked very tempting but as I am diabetic the sandwich was a more sensible option. A nice weekend coffee shop & will call in again when in the area.

A very nice place where I spent at least an hour having a lunch. Food was really good, as was the service. There was wifi too. Toilets were cold, though, and was a bit cramped when I was hoping to enjoy my lunch as other customers kept on getting moved to my table.

We went to First Fruits Tearoom several times during our stay on the Isle of Harris during September 2016. Food was excellent, price was very reasonable and service was second to none. The lovely staff there were extremely polite, friendly and made us very welcome each time. Thanks guys!

This little cafe' has outdoor seating and an incredibly cosy indoor room. The coffee is among the best I've ever tasted outside Italy, the tea and scones are delicious too. I didn't try their cooked breakfast but it looks really nice. Everything neat and tidy, toilets very clean, prices moderate. I'd recommend this place to anyone!

This is the first place we visit on leaving the ferry & the last place before catching the ferry back to Skye. They do a great breakfast and service is really friendly & welcoming.
