Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I loved everything here. I could have bought the whole bakery. Get there before they open, they sell out of their best things quickly. It is a great place, to try the best bakery in Scotland. It was so much fun! Got recommendations from the...locals in line. We got one of everything to share and to sample. But I would recommend getting one for each individual everything was so good. We loved it so much. We tried to go back, but almost everything was gone. Luckily there were a few tarts and they were delicious. We hadn't tried them before. For our first sampling - We tried our first Scottish shortbread, million dollar bar, empire biscuit, carrot cake, breakfast sandwich, filled roll, salads were good size for lunch! It was so fun to sample everything,More

Despite a line out the door, we were served quickly, and the food was top-notch. A great little find for lunch!

If you're in Portree, this is almost a requirement. We grabbed a breakfast treat before hopping the bus off the Island. (It's right across the street on the Square.) Delicious latte and vegetarian sausage roll. My friend got a scone. They DO have outdoor seating,...which we enjoyed because the weather wasn't bad but wouldn't be good on a rainy day. They DO have indoor seating, it appears (and bathrooms) but it was closed off when we were there. (Public bathrooms a block away.) So wasn't as coze a time as we hoped. But glad we did it!More

While staying in the highlands we spent a day on the Isle of Skye. We had our quite large dog with us, so lunch needed to be somewhere we could accommodate him while we ate, and McKenzie’s Bakery, opposite the car park, had picnic benches...outside we thought would work well. The menu is simple; sandwiches, salads and baked potatoes, not to mention tempting-looking cakes on display, as well as a decent selection of hot drinks. The queue, although out of the door due to local school lunchtime, was very swiftly dealt with, and no obstruction to a great lunch. We ordered three rolls (ham, cheese and chutney, and chicken tikka), which all came with fresh salad inside, plus a jacket potato with beans and cheese. The cheese was that lovely sharp tasting Scottish orange cheddar; the chicken tikka roll garnered particular praise from our teenage son. I had read to expect to pay a little more on Skye for lunch. It’s a tourist area and an island, and we’re fine with that. When I paid I was pleasantly surprised by the cost, about £24 for four lunches and hot drinks. The stream of local teens buying lunch in their school break is testament to this being a great place to stop.More

Popped for lunch by accident as the cafe next door was closed. A lovely little place, the queue was out of the door. I had a salad box which was absolutely the best salad box I have ever had from a takeout place. My partner...had a filled roll which he really enjoyed (and he is fussy) My mum indulged in a pastry and a slice of cake which she also enjoyed. We all had coffees and sat outside with our lunch. Service took a while, but it was exceptionally busy and space is finite in a bakery. Luckily there were tables etc outside Loved itMore

This place is utterly fantastic, do not miss it! It was very busy with locals and tourists when we popped in for coffee and cake (amazing chocolate brownie donut and huge Empire biscuit), but well worth wait. Reasonably priced too. We'll definitely back when next...on Skye!More

My husband has a way of always finding the sweet treats and he found MacKenzie's Bakery! He grabbed 4 of the sweets that we took to the Lealt Falls Lookout for a perfect little snack! There was for sure an eclair and I can't remember...the rest, but they were all dynamite!More

Good quality baked items including donuts and brownies. Unfortunately we timed it wrong and many items had been sold by 1.30. Best advice get there early.

The food is excellent. It's immaculate inside. They went out of their way to accommodate me because I am vegan. They even have non-dairy milk for takeaway cuppas. Lovely friendly service from the lady who served us. Don't be put off by the queue. It...is managed very well and you are served quickly. The doughnuts are to die for and the fresh bread is super.
