Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is such a great wee cafe. As locals we visit often - the breakfast rolls are fantastic! The coffee is lovely too and there’s always a delicious home-made soup on offer. The service is extremely welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend it to everybody...😊More

Great service. Had a cheddar and tomato toasty. The cheese was nicely stretchy. The tea was lovely. Thoroughly enjoyed the empires biscuit. The quince ice cream was super interesting. The steak pie was also lovely and flavor and flaky in pastry.

A great wee café that serves unfussy food made from all-local ingredients. Service with a smile, and a great selection of local foodie gifts and deli ingredients to take away.

My boyfriend wanted me to try 'traditional' Scottish food. Which is what we did. We arrived and to my surprise it was a very small little cafe, but rather nice too. We ordered Lorne and Tatty Scones each... which were lovely!! I would recommend it...for sure! Very tasty and super affordable!!More

Had a lovely lentil soup and a roll filled with hot haggis. Prices quite reasonable and food filling. Good when waiting for a train after disembarking the ferry. Very conveniently sited by the ferry terminal on the way to the train station. Do water refills...and will fill reusable coffee cups. Do use vegware if there's no room to eat in and you have/want to take out.More

I visit this cafe about once each week. The staff are always so friendly and the food served is always great. Fresh local from Argyll. Great before covid. Great now during the pandemic. Looking forwards, one day, to a sit down meal there again.

We didn't do that, however the que seemed to sit long enough to at least run and get some food. It is very close to the que. I'm not sure if there are any rules about leaving your car.

I think so. If not? There are benches immediately outside where you could sit with your dog.
