Great food here, enjoyed our lunch on the island. We had fishcakes and burgers, fishcakes were pretty smoky in taste and burgers were really chunky. Damn good cup of tea though, hit the spot.

Enjoyed eating here when we arrived on Eigg. Very friendly staff and excellent fresh food. Just a few steps from where the ferry stops. They will also make up a sandwich for you to take away.

As a daytripper we stopped here for coffee and cake. Good service, nice lemon drizzle cake and a fantastic view on a brilliant day. Right near the ferry terminal, with awesome views.
