“wonderful sandwiches”
Reviewed 15 June 2014

It was pouring with rain so we dived into Julie's on the spur of the moment. A great move as it turned out. We had fantastic salmon sandwiches and the cakes also looked lovely. Despite being asked, the service was fast and friendly. Couldn't ask for more.

“Scones to die for”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We only had tea and scones. The scones were the best I have had for a long time. Whilst I am not a scone expert I have had many cream teas in Cornwall and Devon, but the scones there did not match these ones.

“A jewel of a cafe”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

A little of the beaten track; however it was still very busy and the first clue to us that it must be good; stopped here for a bite of late lunch. Coffee was excellent and the sandwiches excellent. We needed a lot of will power to get out before succumbing to the very tempting cakes.

“Excellent cafe, tucked away, but well worth finding!”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The cafe is on a side road (The one the Oban distillery is on) so it has a quiet pavement for sitting outside - which is quite sheltered even on cooler days. The coffee is very nice and the homemade cakes are really good. What is unusual, and where this cafe wins, is that they'll do a 'taster plate' of little bite size pieces of their cakes (of your choice). We were just in for coffee and cakes, but next time we'll go there for lunch.
