“Lovely Little Cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Trying to find a cafe open in Oban on a Sunday wasn't easy, but this was a great little find.
Perfect little cafe to escape the rain & enjoy lunch.
Service was quick and efficient. Food was lovely and very reasonably priced.
A must if your in Oban.

“no service no manners”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

on day trip from Dunoon popped in to get out of the rain, sat at table in corner , waited a while went to the counter the girl was busy cooking breakfast for customers seated near servery, went sat back down lady came from that same table we ordered 2 coffees and 1 toasted tea cake with butter. the coffee was ok toasted tea cake ok , but felt uncomfortable as to the discussion going on by the other 3 customers eating breakfast along with lady who served us, finally we got up i paid the £6.25 !!! and left we didn't want to listen to any more bad language rather walk around in the rain.
