“over priced, nothing special and behind the times.”
Reviewed June 13, 2013

On first appearance this place looks great, on stepping inside you'll realise that it's really very expensive. We hoped for good things for a toastie for a touch under a fiver, unfortunately it was nothing special at all. just a standard toastie that you or I could have made at home. And just the toastie on it's own, no salad, nothing. Dissapointing, really. And what really put the tin hat on it was the way of 'hiding the prices, such as a long list of soups that turned out to be 'from £4', rather than just £4 as it seemed on first appearance. And also brown bread an extra 50p hidden conveniently in the corner of the menu...we're not living in the 60s any more, are we? Brown bread isn't anything special these days...

“mmm delicious”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

we were treated to Jann's Cakes on our arrival to our holiday cottage as part of our welcome hamper along with some bread. We also visited her honesty box which was at the end of our road where we purcgased further goodies. Unfortunatly we missed the shop as we left early on our last day and it doesn'topen till 10.00. our loss well worth a try though

“Parisienne Prices!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

When a place has a monopoly it can up its prices. I fear this is a case in question - these are prices more often found on the Champ Élysées not on the outskirts of the middle of no where. Tasty but not THAT tasty.

“Best Cakes Ever”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

We came across Jan's Cakes while walking back to the car after a walk in Dunvegan. The cakes are quite pricey but delicious. Next time I am on Skye I will be sure to go back.
