We were wanting some refreshments and this place was the only place open that we could find in mid October. The lovely lady, who was working on her own, was so helpful and had time for a chat, she told us about her day and...More

Came across this hidden gem when driving around Harris. It was great to support the local community centre and we really enjoyed the delicious cakes and toasties. We sat outside and watched the seals and enjoyed listening to a visiting piper who got everyone up...More

We were led to believe otherwise but were rather disappointed with the food on offer. The soup did not taste homemade and was extremely watery. The chocolate cake also looked commercially produced. We would not return.

We only had coffe and cakes, but the cakes were superb. Jessie served us and she did all the baking herself. Well worth a visit just for the baking.

We stopped here for a bite while meandering around Harris. The toasties were delicious, the scones very nice and the tea good. Service is attentive but this is a community centre, where you're welcomed as a guest, not catered to like a customer.

Small community café with mainly local custom. And the best toasties Ihave eaten in my life. Very friendly service and were given good travel recommendations.

Fell upon the Bays Centre and met with a warm welcome. Lovely, simple but tasty fare. I liked the fact it was all home made and that there was also some local craftwork for sale - thank you!
