This cafe is one of those places you might drive up to and have two minds as to whether to venture in - PLEASE DO. Food was incredible, we had Homemade Chicken Broth and Scone which was so delicious we asked for two more to take with us when we left. Staff were friendly and efficient and prices were good....

After a day of sightseeing through Glen Coe we decided to head to the village itself for much needed refreshment. By chance we stumbled across the Glencoe Cafe. At a first glance it looks like somebody's house! After parking up we entered and were given a lovely welcome. When the tea and cakes arrived, my word we weren't disappointed! Without... More

Stopped for lunch on the way to Fort William. It's a lovely cafe with friendly service, great food, brilliant tea, and a selection of books for local walks. Definitely worth a stop off on the way up north.

Four of us dropped in here for a quicky soup and sandwich lunch on a Saturday. Everything was excellent: homemade soup , cheese scones and sandwiches all hit the spot. The service was quick and very friendly. All very reasonably priced ! Anyone who says Scots restauranteurs don't get it right need to come here and a get a lesson... More

Good food for fair prices. If it wasn't so hard to get too, we would definitely come back. But unfortunately we were just stopping by. Great service and the scones were delicious.

I went to Glencoe in the end of October, 2016. My friend and I were exploring this little village, when it started to rain. We found this cozy place to eat a little something.
