Stopped here for a coffee and lunch. Sat outside with the pooch in the March sunshine and what a view!!! Lovely little stop and the soup and salmon were excellent. Would definitely go back. Just check opening days on the website at this time of year to make sure it's open. Highly recommend.

We stopped here for tea and a cake as we toured the island. It is a lovely spot. Quiet and lovely views. The tea and coffee were good and cakes too.

We visited this cafe several years ago and enjoyed it then so it was nice that it was even better than before. The cheese platters are both excellent in taste and value. The staff are friendly and the place is warm on on a cold day. It does get busy, so prepare for a bit of a wait for a... More

We had driven the golden road, seen Eagles, seals, moonscapes and mountains, around the next bend we followed the sign for the art cafe, and within minutes were sat inside a croft, looking at local paintings, reading history books and tucking into scones jam and cream, sponge cakes, and a cheese board......and we came away with a complete art set...

Stopped in to check the place out as heard about it in a travel guide. Nestled in a gorgeous little setting and had the most amazing artwork inside! Fresh baking every day, nice selection - recommend the brownie!

A Gem of a cafe/gallery in the middle of nowhere! Such friendly service and the mocha coffee to die for! I was there with a group of 10 of us and everyone enjoyed their coffees of various types.

We caught the in their last week before closing for the winter. I'm glad we did. We got a good welcome and arrived on a really sunny warm day and the views were outstanding. Prices are reasonable and the food was first class whatever you choose. The home baking was delicious and coffees excellent. It is lovely to browse the... More
