“Great coffee, great view.”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Good selection of teas and very good coffee. Home baking was a treat. The menu is limited to just a few things but that makes those few things very good. 3 of our group had toasties and the other 2 had scones. There was a decent selection of soft drinks available too.
The owners were very friendly and welcoming and we will certainly call again when next in Elgol. Don't go here if you are expecting a huge meal, it is a coffee shop not a restaurant but a very good coffee shop at that.

“Good coffee and great view”
Reviewed 21 July 2013

This coffee shop with magnificent view and great coffee is not what you except to find in little village in remote location. Coffee and food was excellent and atmosphere very down to earth.

“Unexpected and wonderful”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

After driving on the long and twisty track to Elgol we were tired, cold, and hungry. Not expecting very much we went into the Cullin View to see if we could have lunch. What a wonderful surprise! The cafe was calm and serene in contrast to the blustery day outside. There were perhaps 25 different types of tea on offer as well as coffee drinks, and wonderful cakes. We ordered cheese and tomato toasties and found that they were made with homemade bread and aged cheddar. The ingredients were of the best quality and although the meal was simple it was absolutely delicious. And, although the Hills were clouded over while we were there, the cafe does have an amazing view of the Cullins. If you are find yourself in Elgol, stop in. You will be glad that you did!

“A real gem of a coffe/tea house”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

If you're in Elgol, this is a must. Fantastic coffee, extensive range of teas, wonderful home-cooked cakes and cookies, and an amazing view. The owners are also extremely pleasant to chat with.
