Lovely views but even better food. The platter and lobster salad was stunning whilst the coffee is one of the best I have ever tasted. It is a shame we aren't locals!

Great choices of freshly baked cakes. Also savoury options. Up a narrow track with a small parking area so to be avoided by camper vans.

This beautifully located little cafe/gallery/coffee shop has been one of my favourite features of Skye and would repay anybody a visit. Bread and cakes are baked on the premises and I was lucky enough to have a cinnamon roll straight from the oven on one visit which was a little piece of heaven. The coffee was gorgeous and kept me...

WE didn't eat here but attended one of the summer music nights at the Cafe. What an intimate venue! Only 34 in the audience! Everyone made us feel very welcome an the designer nuts were delicious! Definitely go along if you get the chance!

Nicely situated and a lovely drive to get there. Fantastic coffee and lemon slice. Meals looked lovely. Lots of staff and very clean. Wished we could have stayed longer. Nice alpine garden outside.

Delicious lunch stop here: very tasty soup, oatcakes, bread and dips. Had to stay for cake after seeing the selection on offer: wonderfully fresh and home made. A great place with a friendly and lively atmosphere.

Been before, not disappointed. Arrived just after opening and the bread and scones were still being baked fresh. The cheese scone with Crowdie and Onion Marmalade was superb and so was the coffee which has to be the very best espresso I have ever had. These folk know their coffee and they know how to cook. The only thing missing... More

Easy to find thanks to a number of sign posts on the way into Glendale. Very tasty cakes and good drinks, just a little bit pricey.

We returned here again and we were not disappointed. Cinnamon bun and cinnamon hot chocolate were to die for. My daughter (10) has raved about the gamekeeper platter for a year and it did not disappoint. Once again a fantastic lunch.
