Happened across this lovely cafe driving back from Mellon Udrigle beach. Enjoyed delicious Moroccan tomato & chickpea soup, Devine raspberry ripple cake and tasty coffee. Just the ticket after a wet and windy walk. Very friendly service too. Thank you.

My wife and I both had the brie and roasted vegetables baguette which was phenomenal. We also both had a slice of cake each, which were delicious. The next time we are in the area we will definitely go back. Don't eat anywhere else!

We had a great stop on the way to Inverewe Gardens. The cafe was fully compliant with Covid-19 precautions and the food was amazing! Vegan chocolate, blueberry and coffee cake. Friendly staff, great quality and reasonable price. Don't miss this
