We visited for lunch on a horrible wet day. We managed to get the last table as the place was so busy, despite it being a bit off the beaten track. The food was lovely- delicious soup and the best carrot cake I’ve ever had! The paintings were all so beautiful I could have spent a fortune! We would definitely go back if visiting Harris again- it’s a shame the cafe is not going to run in 2019 but I’d still recommend a visit to the gallery.

We had driven most of the golden road (My theory is they call the (extraodinarily skinny and curvy road “the Golden Road because no American has ever driven the whole length without wetting themselves!) we were famished and stopped at Skoon Art Cafe. The menu had only 8 items or so, but each looked tasty. We had the soup which was wonderful. As was looking at the local artist’s nice pipeces on the wall. We’d return. From (I’d hope) the shorter Golder Road route.

Well worth a visit down the single track, extremely narrow road. The art is lovely, mostly sunsets and seascapes. Lovely coffee and scone with cream and jam. The soup smelled great but it was too early for lunch unfortunately! Lovely girl who served us and the artist appeared and was very friendly. A local lad.
