We love it here- that's why we return year after year when staying down the road at Loch Linnhe Lodges.The building is old and quaint ,but lovingly maintained.Go through the gift shop( full of interesting bits and pieces,with something for everyone,) and into the coffee shop,whereyou will be warmly welcomed by the friendly staff! Then,what to have?Everything looks fresh and come-and-eat-me!Scones are always fresh,bacon sandwiches are yummy and the coffee is excellent.But ,perhaps best of all are the fantastic views!! All in all a lovely place to visit.

Had a cake n coffee here with my wife. Always think that cake in local places should feel home made and fresh due to the business image. Our cake was hard to cut with a really crusty base. Drinks were fine but felt less happy as the cakes let the experience down. The shop is quaint enough with a plethora of gifts but nothing unique I could see. It's the cottage setting that probably draws you here.

Delightful cafe run by a rather sweet old man who is renowned for his expertise on the Glencoe massacre and is always happy to stop for a chat about it.
Famed for it's home made cakes and fine collection of books and photographs Crafts and Things is genuinely one of the nicest travel stops in the highlands and should not be missed

Crafts and Things delivers what so few eating places seem to be capable of in the Highlands. That is they consistently prepare and serve simple food to a high standard. Furthermore they provide this brilliant service throughout the year, unfortunately still a rarity in the Highlands. Quite rightly greatly valued by locals and visitors to the area. Glencoe is indeed very fortunate to have this establishment located in their midst. Thankfully this place is always busy ensuring that it will continue to thrive and prosper in the future. Whatever the time of day this establishment is well worth visiting whether for a morning coffee, light snack or a full meal.

Stopped off here by chance because I thought there was a pub nearby.

This wee cafe doesn't really shout about the food that it serves and was a nice surprise to sample their soups and sandwiches. Splendid.
