Very pleased to come across such an excellent wee cafe! Food was lovely, service was good (and very quick on a busy day) and there was a gift shop on the premises too with some lovely items that I hadn't seen anywhere else (not the...usual tourist fare). A great wee find! Highly recommended!More

I came to glencoe on a whim when my original plans for the day got cancelled. Glad I did as it was so lovely. The staff at the cafe were fabulous and it was covid friendly too. Food was gorgeous. They also had a lovely...little gift shop where I got a couple of souvenirs too.More

Hidden Gem. Read the reviews whilst planning our visit to the area so ensured we dropped the postcode in the Sat Nav. We called in after visiting the Glencoe Centre a mile up the road and so happy we did, arrived around 11:30am and beat...the rush of walkers that started to stream in after us. Small cafe, excellent service, I had the soup and sandwich combo and was delicious, husband had a panini and could not resist a cake from the counter display. Excellent value for money and so happy we supported a small local businessMore

We visited twice. The first time we were so impressed we came back the next day after getting soaked walking the woodland Lochan trail. Excellent home made soups with fresh herb scones and cream cheese made for a nourishing snack We didn't need to bother...with an evening meal in Fort William on the second day after buying freshly made cakes to take away!! Well stocked with interesting books and cards about Glencoe and the Highlands. Bird table outside attracted continual stream of small birds to watch. Friendly and efficient service Highly recommendedMore

Good cafe for hikers and quick bite to eat in a rural village setting. Don't go expecting a city style hipster cafe or a fine dining restaurant. It's not overpriced, or pretentious, it's a little tired inside but the coffee was good and strong and...the cakes were a nice treat too. There is a car park which was useful. The service was simple and friendly. In short it's just right for the location and prices.More

We finished our walk around the lake and came across this lovely tucked away cafe. We had tea and sandwiches, which were beautifully presented, fresh and delicious. Service was impeccable! Please visit you really won't be disappointed ❤️

Thank you for the great review. We are really pleased that you enjoyed our cafe and your walk around the local Glencoe Lochan. It's such a beautiful little loch and so peaceful

A lovely little cafe tucked away in the village of Glencoe which we found thanks to TripAdvisor. So glad we stopped by. Rang to check if we could bring our dog and was advised that we couldn't bring him inside but there was seating outside...which we were welcome to use. Arrived and two of the three outside benches were available. Ordered homemade soup and cheese and herb scone for me and BLT panini for him with a cup of coffee each! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. We were made to feel very welcome and were offered a bowl of water for the dog. Would definitely recommend.More

Lovely clean place to eat. We chose to eat inside but outside option is also available. There is a small carpark at the rear but all the car parks we found nearby were free anyway. The menu is varied and everything we saw looked great....We had the homemade soup and a BLT. Both were excellent. Really pleased to be able to have both decaff tea (in a proper tea pot) and soya milk. Good selection of cakes to eat in or takeaway. Price very reasonable for a tourist area. Will definitely return if in the area and would definitely recommend.More

Hi Lynn, Unfortunately, we do not let dogs inside the cafe which is quite compact. We do have an outside seating area where dogs are welcome but obviously this is weather dependant. The nearby Clachaig Inn happily allow dogs... More
