“Nice little cafe buy staff were totally disinterested”
Reviewed 8 July 2013 via mobile

Stopped by for coffee. Order taken but they then went on to fill several other orders from customers who arrived after us. We had to ask again after about 10 minutes to get a simple black coffee. This place used to be a lot better

“Food okay, but had to wait”
Reviewed 23 June 2013

Went in to get some soup and a sandwich to take out, but had to wait a while as there were a couple of folk in front of me and it seemed to take ages for the staff to 'process' their orders. I got the impression they were not entirely sure about things and did not seem to be that well organised. Anyway, when I got the food, it was okay - the sandwiches were thick and well-filled, and the soup was quite good ( perhaps just needed a pinch of salt).
If I go back to Oban I may well try somewhere else for lunch.

“Miserable visit :(”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 via mobile

After cycling 21 miles across mull in the rain we thought we'd enjoy the sites of Oban and then pop into the Little Bay Cafe.

From the beginning I felt like we were just a hassle turning up. Once my husband received his supermarket scone cream tea - very ordinary, they started tidying up around us - turning customers away and chatting about 'people not seeing that they're shut' when a man came in to ask a question.

I was not impressed by the atmosphere or the unsmiling way we were talked to. If you start taking your mood out on customers, they will seek to warn others!
