Looking at this quaint little hut you could not imagine the quality of food on the inside. Whether for a meal or coffee and cake this establishment is a must. My only comment is the starter was so filling I struggled to get through the delicious Hungarian Goulash. My wife had duck to die for. Games to occupy children, charming... More

Saw this wee cafe whilst driving towards Loch Katrine and decided to pop in for lunch. So glad we did. What an amazing place. I was expecting sandwiches but it was more like fine dining. I had the sea bass which was cooked to perfection. Hubby had the venison stew and he was licking his lips afterwards. Decided to go... More

Came across this gem whilst walking, like the sign "we don't have wifi we like to talk. Food was excellent menu and specials where above average to say the least. Price, you would expect to pay more for this quality. Staff very welcoming. A must visit.

No. 1 in the Trossachs and it did not disappoint!! We arrived at 1pm and were welcomed in to what appears from the outside to be a shed. Inside the tearoom is very cosy and the menu is fitting for any decent restaurant. We had the seafood chowder and curried parsnip soup, both were delicious, fresh and very good portion... More

We stopped by for a late lunch,and since we are both vegetarians, we had the grilled halloumi cheese, and it was really nice. I was gonna have a starter too, but we were quite late so they didn't have any more of the beetroot starter. So after the main meal I decided to try the carrot cake, and was absolutely... More

Surprised to find Goulash on the menu - but when I heard the accent of the waitress (Hungarian) it fell into place. Great food, great service, fair prices. Wood panelled interior was homely. Seafood chowder was spot on, as were the desserts..

Called in for lunch after a drive over the Dukes Pass. Very welcoming friendly staff who all made time for a chat. Went with the intention of a sandwich and a cuppa, ended up having a wonderful meal in this quaint little restaurant. Food was excellent, we will be back again.
