“An excellent way to spend a lunch”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Visiting the Workshop Cafe before or after a trip around the most enjoyable gardens is a worthwhile way to spend a Wednesday or Friday lunch / afternoon.

Don't forget to try some of Sarah's delicious cakes afterwards as well.

“What a find”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Pity only open on Wednesdays. We shared homemade soup and rolls plus fantanstic homemade scones and sponge. Delightful sitting in the sun on the terrace for lunch.

“Great homemade cakes”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Lovely little cafe - well worth the walk - friendly and chatty with some unexpected glamour. We had lentil soup, salad and sandwiches and cake - all freshly prepared. Even the Eccles cakes were homemade. A gluten free option would have been perfection (and GF chocolate brownies really easy and excellent).

“Limited choices on Colonsay”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Felt like a tiny campground cafeteria. I was disappointed by the ambiance but the food was acceptable and the staff very nice and helpful.

“Delicious!!”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

The staff were friendly. There was a wide range of sandwiches to choose from and the soup was delicious. The cakes were scrumptious. I would recommend a visit to this cafe to everyone travelling to the island
