This cafe is at the foot of Aonach Mor where gondolas access the Nevis Range. It overlooks car parking on two aspects, the third being the gondolas. It's very relaxing watching the cable cars moving up and down the mountain but that is really all there is to see: the car park and its surrounds do not make the best... More

After a long day of cycling we thought we'd drop in for a coffee and a warm up. It was 5pm, had better check its open - sign outside says 'we are open' and the place is busy inside with people sitting and queuing to buy drinks. We ordered 4 coffees and as soon as we sat down the staff... More

Great selection of drinks and snacks; very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Easy access from the expansive car park and close proximity to the Gondola, ski hire and ticket office.

Came to the Glen Nevis range to go on the gondolas however they weren't operating on the 1st day so we stayed in this cafe for coffee and cakes. Really nice staff and reasonably priced. Free WiFi as well which the kids appreciated

After a long walk, me and my mother fancied a bite to eat. After ordering from what can only be described as a surly, rude, fairly tall, blonde waitress, I had my drinks chucked at me, had to ask for a glass and then sat down. When my food arrived, the nachos were littered with extremely spicy jalapeños, even though... More

Our tour stopped here for the gondola/tram tour, as it was overcast we all opted out of the 12 pound tram ride, instead had lunch at the Pinemarten Cafe, the food was good as was the service. You know you are in Scotland when you see haggis nachos on the menu! As there were no takers for the tram in... More

Having driving for 2 hours, with a further 3 to go we stopped here to take in the views on the gondola. Unfortunately the gondolas weren't in operation due to high winds. Instead of just heading into Fort William we stopped at the Pinemarten Cafe.....how we wished we had just driven a further 5 miles down the road. Having waited... More
