We had our lunch here with a smile on our mouth. The host was smiling and seemed to love life. But most of all, the food was great. She had very comfy chairs that made us relax.
We enjoyed our stay here.

Went in twice whilst stopping on the Island. The food choice was brilliant, full of local ingredients but with twists added by the very friendly owner. The treacle and ginger scones are a winner, so are the toasted sarnies. Mairi and the lovely lady who work in there will give you guidance on the Island or just pass the day with you. The cafe feels like you are sitting in someones front room and the great service makes it a very special place

Lovely home-made food - 2 of us had burgers that were really good - 1 had cheesy pasta also very good and I had soup which again was very good - well worth a visit - when we are next in Islay we will be visiting again

We tried a few places on our week long stay in Islay, and I think this was the best, even allowing for the lack of alcohol, a glass of red wine would have gone very well with the Black Pudding and Goats Cheese. Generous portion control, salads and delicious bread, and a warm welcome from Mairi, could hungry hikers ask for more?
