“lovely find”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Headed here today as it is pouring with rain and we wanted to get out of the cottage. Busy wee place! We ordered soup, baked potatoes and sandwiches followed by coffee and cakes. All were delicious (with the exception of the cheese scone served with the soup which the husband moaned was stale but ate it nonetheless so it couldn't have been that bad!). Plates were substantial and we left with full bellies. My son loved the hot chocolate, served in a massive bowl like cup with lots of marshmallows and cream. Scones were beautiful. Would definitely return.

So glad you enjoyed the food in our little cafe - we cant understand the comment about the one stale scone - as they are baked fresh every morning -but we are always happy to respond to any complaints if we are told at the time - glad you enjoyed the rest of the scones and hot chocolate too .
It certainly was a wet day on Tuesday - but weather improved later in the week - though still a bit breezy.

“Brilliant service and lovely food”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

This centre has a lovely wee cafe, open during the day.
The food is very good, we stopped here last week and were more than impressed when offered a choice of 4 soups, all vegetarian too.
There is outdoor seating and a gorgeous view.
The staff were very friendly and we love visiting when in North Uist.

“Simply V Good”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

This is a small cafeteria attached to a sort of community centre.

Home made soups, scones and caked are first class and it was no surprise on our visit to find it almost full within minutes of opening!

Just one young girl out front but service was quick and friendly.

Lovely eatery.

“Really excellent”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

Big lunches, lots of variety, quick service and friendly staff. Most mainland cafes and small restaurants could do well to copy their lead. Wish we had places like this back home. Very highly recommended.
