Went there recently on a really cold day to get a hot drink and maybe a piece of cake. Had a lovely coffee and a great homemade piece of cake. We arrived to the area the day before and has vehicle problems. We enquired about...More

The cafe is right on the beach and offers good home-cooked food with excellent cakes and light snacks for lunch. It is a good place to stop after a bracing beach walk and has plenty of tables and seating outside within yards of the sea....More

Wonderful attentive staff. Good menu options although limited and great coffee. Playground to keep the kids occupied and great views with a chance of spotting dolphins.

This is ideal if it's a lovely day and you can sit outside on the beach - brilliant location! We had to sit inside where there was a strong smell of frying meat. The food was very basic and not much veggie choice. As a...More

Visited for a late lunch after walking around Chanonry Piont, coffee was good. We had a sausage and bacon sandwich which would have been very good but was let down by the bread being a bit dry. Good location though right on Rosemarkie beach.

Nice food, great location and views of the Dolphin mile. Has lots of information of the history of Rosemarkie and the dolphins. It will be also great when they raise enough money to redo the tennis courts.

What a gorgeous setting for a beach cafe! Tucked away at the edge of Rosemarkie beach is this lovely little find. It may not look anything special but it's defiantly a place I'd recommend for a nice lunch or coffee and cake... We enjoyed some...More

Lovely setting for this beach cafe and probably worth a visit if you're passing. I had the 'Rosemarkie Man" - a bacon, sausage and tomato sandwich that was good but, at £4.50, was not really worth the money. I also had a latte and this...More

Having stumbled upon this small beach cafe, we will definitely return. Nice beach, small play area for the children and seating looking out to the sea and toward Fort George. Get the timing right and you can see Dolphins. Not far to walk to chanory...More

Thanks Mike - we always try to give a warm welcome whatever the weather - but because we're in the far north of Scotland it's a bit of a worry if people score us on what the weather's doing as we have absolutely no control... More

We are a social enterprise cafe run by Rosemarkie Amenities Association set in a nice green field right beside a sandy beach. We are a short walk from the nearest on street parking over a wee bridge. Great beach for rock-pooling, paddling and dolphin-spotting. Our young trainee staff learn to make simple food well: home-made soup, cheese toasties, hot drinks, salads. We have very naughty cakes and lovely ice-cream.

We are not the Ritz and we can't do much about the weather but we have a nice wee exhibition about the local area which is free, walks leaflets, maps and our staff are all local.

This year's profits will contribute to the replacement of our seaside tennis courts. Donations very welcome!

We are open until 3.30 daily until early November when we go down to Friday, Saturday and Sunday instead.

Come and see us soon!
