Good food and craic. Been here a few times and always had something a bit different. Had an impromptu lesson on how to drink coffee here too. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Change of ownership hasn't effected its philosophy. Shame it isn't open in 2017 season...More

Went for the sticky buns. Not very sticky. Pretty dry. No nuts, raisins or frosting. Bread ok. No one there. Cute shop but not much morning action.

We set out to find this highly recommended eatery on a cold blustery day and gave up! On our second try, we were rewarded by being welcomed into a cozy, delightful cafe that served the most delicious food. The service is prompt and friendly and...More

We were on the way to Neist Point but it was pouring rain so we stopped on the way! It's a great place and we were lucky to get a table. Fabulous home made food, great coffee. Highly recommended if in the area!

Recommended by the owner of our holiday cottage, everything is home cooked, even the fantastic chutney that comes with the huge cheese scones ( melt in the mouth )

After a wild and windy visit to nearby Neist Point we were more than ready for the warm welcome we received at the Red Roof café. We enjoyed an excellent Fisherman’s Platter and the herb-infused water was a nice touch. An excellent range of home-made...More

If you are in the area of Glendale, you really must visit here. The scones and cakes are all freshly baked and the coffee is made to order. The staff are very friendly and we were lucky enough to chat with the Scone queen herself...More

They serve local, fresh and organic foods at the cafe. It's well presented and tasted great. The cafe overlooks a valley with sheep. The cafe is off a single track road.

We are a small and intimate ‘Croft-to-Table’ restaurant in the shadows of Macleod’s Tables in the Northwest of Skye. In 2018, we are open for dinner from 5th of June until end of October on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We are now taking bookings, just click on Book a Table Our food is inspired by the produce we grow ourselves and sourced from other local crofts. The “croft-to-table” menu is based on what we have gathered from the croft and includes meat from native breeds such as Hebridean and Shetland sheep, home-reared free range chickens and eggs, and typical Highland produce such as potatoes, kale, turnips, brambles, and raspberries. We prepare the produce as we would like to eat it ourselves. We keep it simple, present the food in a relaxed atmosphere and serve dishes that encourage sharing. We serve a seasonal set three course menu (£35) which enables us to serve the very freshest produce from the croft and minimise food waste.
