“Rip Off”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We called in this place which is in a nice position by the harbour and ordered two cream teas. The teapot was accompanied by two coffee cups and the scones needed a magnifying glass to see them. I didn't believe it was possible to make them that small, reminded me of when you were a child and made something out of the small bits of your mum's left over pastry.
Sadly this seems to be one of those not too infrequent establishments that trade on their position with guaranteed tourists and are not bothered about value for money as they won't see them again.

“Lovely stop for tea”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

After the Oban distillery we were ready for a break. The Little Bay Cafe does cream teas for a very good price. Unfortunately they didn't have clotted cream (for me a must have) but that was because they had run out indicating it's popularity. The whipped cream was just as good, the tea was refreshing and sitting in the window offers a lovely view. However it does not have any toilets which became an issues after finishing a pot of tea to myself but those of a sturdier bladder than I should not hesitate to stop by there.
